The Blue Room
Neon blue lights curve across The Blue Room’s covered patio, echoing the curve of archways that line the perimeter. Inside, a wraparound granite bar reflects the same amethyst glow, and votive candles flicker behind blue glass at high-top tables and in lounges filled with leather chairs. Chefs craft modern small-plate fare that complements the sleek interior, drizzling lobster and crab cakes with dill cream and pairing grilled portobello mushrooms with warm brie. Additionally, live bands take to the stage each week as an alternative to the metronome that traditionally moderates mealtime chewing.
