Now that food has been determined to have no hallucinogenic or addictive properties, the government has finally declared the Schedule I controlled substance safe for human consumption. Enjoy some deliciously decriminalized dining with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Mediterranean-infused cuisine at Blu Restaurant in the Theater District.
Blu's location inside of The Sports Club/LA lifts gravity-grounded gourmands into the air for a breathtaking view of Boston, best enjoyed with fare from Chef Kathleen Smith's hunger-slaying dinner menu. Seafood features prominently into Blu's bounty, with aqueous appetizers such as calamari ($12) and seared scallops ($12) paving the waterway for entrees like a lobster club sandwich ($27) stuffed with shiploads of the shelled sea-samurai. Exploring eats elsewhere on Blu's board of fancy fare, you'll find that polenta fries ($9) pair well with a roasted duck-breast entree ($26) with crispy polenta cake, garlic chard, and pear chutney, or a New York strip steak ($32) with potato puree and sweet and sour onions. Round out your rendezvous with crème brûlée ($9) or pumpkin-spice cheesecake ($8) from Blu's wheel o' desserts.
Blu's floor-to-ceiling windows let you survey Boston's sundry goings-on like an alternate-dimension Bruce Wayne on his night off from "Batmanning it up." With a chic décor complementing the panoramic views of the Cradle of Liberty, Blu offers a high-class and high-rise dining experience just 17 aeronautic feet short of Cloud Nine.
This Groupon is valid only for dinner after 4 p.m.
- ...you'll find capital-D Dining at little-b blu, a clean aerie of an eatery---all brushed metals, natural light, curvy banquettes and cool angles---overlooking an ever-, shall we say, colorful, stretch of Downtown Crossing from a few stories up. If all that sounds a bit idiosyncratic, well, it is; blu is not for the fine-dining traditionalist. – Gayot
- Chef Fosnot's food is a good match for blu's style, with straightforward flavors and clean, fairly simple presentation...Pastry chef Michelle Vernier also matches her desserts to blu. They're pretty, and each has several components, but they're also light-hearted in spirit. – Alison Arnett, Boston Globe
- Wonderful atmosphere, pristine environment, spectacular service and palatable cuisine. – Linney, Citysearch
