Vegetarians can sink their meat-free munchers into the herbivore pizza—a mélange of tomato sauce, white onion, green pepper, mushrooms, olives, and garlic—while omnivores flaunt their Tex-Mex side with the southwestern pie, loaded with sauce, grilled chicken, roma tomatoes, jalapeños, and onion. The fusion lounge also serves a variety of specialty cocktails for parched palates, including the platinum margaritas ($11) and electric blue lemonades ($9) made with Ketel One, blue curacao, lemonade, pineapple, and Smurf tears.
From the brick-paneled walls and booths lined with dark wooden accents to the seasonal selection of gourmet American cuisine, Blackstone embodies every aspect of the classic steak house. A selection of hearty cuts anchors the menu, whether as solitary 8-ounce cuts of filet mignon, or massive 22-ounce cowboy rib eyes adorned with béarnaise sauce, jumbo lump crabmeat, lobster-shaped earrings, and other edible accessories. Guests can also savor a taste of the seas with plates of Atlantic salmon or pan-fried trout. Blackstone's wine list collects more than 35 pours, including 19 by the glass.
J's Lounge aims to be all things for all people. The casual, laid-back space features the dim lighting and neon accents of a club-like lounge, the flat-screen televisions of a classic sports bar, and the extensive shisha collection of a hookah bar. Groups can decide to settle in for the evening and share a hookah, choosing from any of the 30 available tobacco flavors. As the slightly sweet smoke begins to drift throughout the room, guests can indulge in a round of beers or a pitcher of frozen margaritas from one of the two bars before perusing the food menu. Much like the rest of the lounge, the menu features a similarly broad focus. Beer-battered onion rings, half-pound burgers, and New York-style pizzas topped with discontinued subway tokens represent classic American fare, although the selection also features baklava and gyros stuffed with lamb that spent 18 hours slow-cooking in assorted spices. The revelry-inducing atmosphere doesn't end until as late as 3 a.m. on Friday nights, which is the evening when live DJs lure crowds out onto the lounge's dance floors.
