THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Blue Oasis Cafe Restaurant Review

: Even with its suburban-friendly menu, Blue Oasis still just misses the mark. Maybe it's the location, too far off the beaten track to attract motorists. Or maybe it's the ambience, and quite possibly, the food. Yet the premise is good: Small, casual menu, with an emphasis on contemporary American food with just a sprinkling of Mediterranean influence. Yet with prices in the big-city range, you may tend to end up ordering sandwiches and soups, steering away from such entrées as the Seafood Delight with jumbo shrimp and sea scallop or the grilled New York steak. We zeroed in on the grilled pork loin with a cranberry sauce and grilled polenta, but would have been just as happy with the Tuscan salad sandwich.
