Blaze Restaurant Review

: The storefront location, draped with brown curtains, doesn't look like much from the outside; but on the other side of the door, the warm toffee and chocolate tones seem inviting, as does the waitstaff --- prompt, informative and attentive. Owner Christine Edmond describes the ever-expanding menu as American fusion cuisine, but the name above the door provides equally apt reference: dishes ranging from Jamaican jerk chicken (served with black beans, rice and plantains) to an Argentine-style hanger steak have tasted the flames of the kitchen's busy grill. Dinner entrées earn Blaze some "fusion" chops with Cajun fried catfish and braised short ribs. A separate vegetarian menu offers a half-dozen more options, and the menu helpfully indicates which dishes are vegan, vegetarian or gluten-free. At lunchtime, try an oblong barbecued-chicken pizza, grilled to a crispy-crusted turn. Though even dinner prices won't set you back too much, the lunch menu is particularly reasonable, and we appreciate that it allows us to sample a good chunk of the dinner offerings in smaller portions.
