Blue Cat Cafe & Wine Bar Restaurant Review

: Tucked behind a brick courtyard just off City Hall Park, this wine bar-cum-steakhouse rewards travelers hungry enough to find it. Owners Ozzy and Mariasha Giral extend a warm greeting to diners, who are celebrated like house guests. The café’s cozy European décor swims in red velvet drapes; a dimly lit space that evokes funky elegance. Certified Angus beef dominates the bill of fare, and though house-made treats like vegetarian ravioli are available, the ten-table room caters to red-blooded appetites. Why miss the chance to pit Kobe rib-eye against succulent foie gras? Dishes are complemented with native kale and Vermont’s own Boucher blue cheese. Coupled with steak-friendly pours from around the world, the Girals’ mandate seems clear. Nose the wine list at length, and match crisp salads with clean Prosecco before wading into a sea of lush Australian Shiraz. The bar’s deeply bowled stemware is spot on, affording patrons epic swirls all night long. The cheese plate is a fitting end if you want to keep sipping.
