Blue Hill Tavern Restaurant Review: Blue Hill Tavern, a kid-friendly restaurant? Isn’t that the sophisticated place on Brewer’s Hill with the faux-snakeskin chairs and the pricey sous-vide dishes? It is, indeed, but despite the absence of a children’s menu, you’ll often find happy kids in evidence. Even better, Blue Hill caters to our own inner child as it pampers the adult in search of fine dining and ambitious flavors. The Italian flatbread with Roma tomatoes and buffalo mozzarella is a refined update on a childhood classic, as is the Kobe beef burger on brioche. And trendy sous-vide, which cooks vacuum-sealed food in a water bath: what is this but a very, very luxurious version of mom’s boil-in-a-bag dinners? (Although we are pretty sure mom’s version never involved Châteaubriand.) You can even begin your dinner with popcorn --- with truffle oil and sea salt, of course. Service is friendly and attentive, the décor spiffy-sleek (and yes, blue), and from the rooftop patio bar there’s a nice view of the city lights. It’s easy to find, too: just look for the iconic Mr. Boh sign.
