$30 for $60 Worth of Contemporary American Cuisine
Bliss lives up to rave reviews from local and national publications with innovative entrees such as jumbo lump crab cakes with chipotle aioli ($28), lobster risotto with sundried tomato pesto ($28), and vegetable stir-fry with pineapple soy sauce ($22). Gluten-free options are also available. See Chef Dan Nolan's full menu.
Fogged-glass light fixtures illuminate the wood-paneled walls and the polished granite bar tops that span the length of Bliss's multileveled dining room. These elegant decorative touches combine with a menu of contemporary American specialties for a sensory experience that led Esquire to praise Bliss as one of the Best New Restaurants of 2004. The magazine noted in its review that, like a schoolyard court drama or a Hawaiian-print tuxedo, the aptly named restaurant strikes "just the right balance between casual and serious." This balance is especially apparent in the Bliss kitchen, where staffers play with flavors to produce entrees such as potato crusted halibut with lobster bordelaise, marrow crusted beef tenderloin with braised onions, and pan seared salmon with an apple demi-glaze. Other specialties include braised boneless short ribs and pan seared scallops in a citrus-brown butter, both of which pair with a freshly made cocktail from the bar.
