THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Blu Bistro Restaurant Review: Blu Bistro livens up one of the more sleepy University Heights blocks with its elegant Japanese entrées and sushi bar. If the dining room is full, a limited menu from the kitchen can be ordered in the adjacent Blu Room. Like the main restaurant, it features Japanese beer, wine, filtered and unfiltered sakés and cocktails, along with late-night DJ acts. Appetizers include delicious vegetable tempura, wasabi-infused pork dumplings, and seasonal Hawaiian salmon served with coconut-mango-pineapple chutney and purple ginger rice. Traditional items from the sushi bar are excellent, including the often-available fatty tuna. Other entrées include udon noodle and curry coconut clams, the addictive salmon-mango roll and Osaka strip, served with a selection of Asian vegetables in a garlic-teriyaki demi-glace.
