About this Business
From Our Editors
Blu Sesame marries Japanese, Vietnamese, Chinese, and Korean culinary traditions in their Asian bistro, where scarlet walls emblazoned with pinwheel designs border the jet-black upholstery of cushy banquettes. There, patrons settle in and browse a list of more than 100 beers and sakes to accompany entrees of Vietnamese noodles, Korean barbecue, or the kitchen’s specialty fried chicken breast glazed one of six sauces. Though many of the restaurant’s sushi rolls honor their heritage with morsels of raw fish, some specialty rolls embrace the touch of flame—the Cardinal roll daubs sweet-chili vinaigrette over a heart of peppery seared tuna, and the spicy-crab-topped Stop, Drop & Roll is actually set on fire, just like the sushi rolls that light the chef’s apartment at night.
