Blue Restaurant & Bar Restaurant Review: The sundry shores of the Mediterranean Sea yield flavors that shape the menu at Blue Restaurant & Bar. From North Africa come the crispy calamari served with fried olives and peppadew peppers, accompanied by a lemon-harissa dipping sauce; from Morocco is the chicken tagine entrée. Italy offers the prosciutto, tomato and mozzarella flatbread appetizer, while France contributes Provence-style lobster-and-crab cakes. Blue’s multi-cultural mains touch on Greece with a whole roasted sea bass and Italy in the tenderloin and crepinette of wild boar. Spanish Tetilla is a standout among the well-rounded cheese selection. Keep an eye out for seasonal specials, too, such as Clementine-glazed, braised and roasted duck. Desserts include sticky toffee pudding and pistachio semifreddo. Numerous items on the menu may be made gluten-free upon request. With more than 800 labels embracing much of the wine-producing world, the wine list shows particular strength in French, Italian, Spanish and classic American wines. The happy hour special is two appetizers for $10 Monday-Friday 5 p.m.-7 p.m.
