Cool-hued modern art roosts above the sleek leather couches that line Blue Pointe Bistro's interior, overseeing a seasonal parade of delicate starters and inventive entrees. The bistro's menu puts a variety of imaginative twists on time-tested American classics, easing diners into culinary creativity with award-winning appetizers such as pork spring rolls bundled with seasoned vegetables beneath a spicy mustard drizzle ($8). The masterful wait staff, voted best in the area by South Shore Living, ramps up dining drama by delivering show-stealing inner monologues and entrees, such as the pasta with chicken and sausage ($17) or the portobello melt ($8). Neptunian noshers delight as sautéed cod splashes ashore on a beach of crispy garlic and mashed potatoes ($18); sautéed crab cakes bask on the sunny surface of blue rice and veggies ($18).
Blue Pointe's lounge-style interior fills with free live music on most Saturdays, offering acoustic vibrations that force aloof dishes to rub shoulders with each other. Lunch is served on Saturdays and Sundays only.
