In a city already filled with celebrity chefs, award-winning cooks and heralded eateries, the work of Jason Santos stands out – but not just for his shocking blue hair. The distinctive look that Santos sports has actually given rise to Blue Inc., one of Boston’s hippest Financial District restaurants. Things move from mundane to whimsical in a flash inside the space, where a giant mural of model Twiggy decorates the wall, and bartenders whip up adult liquid nitrogen milkshakes, sometimes spiked with booze, to patrons lining the bar. The food menu is equally edgy, with dishes like calamari “spaghetti,” which is thinly cut squid served with pastrami Bolognese, and the Southern-style boneless fried chicken that arrives with pepperjack waffles, smoked maple caramel, arugula and bacon.
