Cool-hued modern art roosts above the sleek leather couches that line Blue Pointe Bistro's interior, overseeing a seasonal parade of delicate appetizers and inventive entrees. The bistro's exhilarating menu boasts a variety of imaginative twists on time-tested American classics, easing diners into culinary creativity with award-winning appetizers, including toasted pumpkin ravioli, draped in a golden mantle of sage butter ($8), and portobello mushrooms in wine risotto, dusted in a school-canceling flurry of parmesan ($7). The masterful wait staff, voted best in the area by South Shore Living, ramps up the drama with show-stealing entrees, such as the chicken and pesto pasta ($16) and portobello melt ($8). Neptunian noshers will delight as grilled swordfish splashes ashore on a beach of mashed potatoes and veggies ($18), and sautéed crab cakes bask on the sunny surface of a butternut squash risotto ($18).
Blue Pointe's lounge-style interior fills with free live music every Saturday, offering acoustic vibrations that force aloof dishes to rub shoulders with each other. Lunch is served Saturday and Sunday only.
