About Blu 1681
Cobalt-blue glasses and sky-blue umbrellas and glowing spheres create the perfect environment for waterfront dining at Blu 1681. Located at the edge of the Occoquan River, the restaurant has a distinctly harbor feel, which inspires both the decor and the maritime-inspired menu.
Blu 1681's name may look to the area's past, but its menu looks to the future, or at least the up-to-the-minute present since Congress outlawed time travel. (Blu, the Italian word for "blue" is in honor of the nationality of the first European in Chesapeake Bay; 1681 recognizes the date the Native American Dogue people mysteriously disappeared from the area.)
Dinners start with sweet-chili fried calamari or catfish nuggets in a smoked-chipotle tartar sauce, followed by freshly caught oysters, crab claws, or shrimp. For the main course, the chef can whip up a variety of seafood dishes with a twist, such as creole grilled octopus and river rockfish with lemon-caper-artichoke sauce, and burgers and steaks provide an alternative to oceanic flavors.
