THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED BluePointe Restaurant Review: Look for the distinctive curved roofline of Buckhead’s Pinnacle Building to find BluePointe. This sweeping, eye-catching space forms a startling dining environment divided into two zones by a bright red barrel-shaped partition. Executive chef Jeremy Miller governs a kitchen that does many things: BluePointe is a sushi bar, a wine bar and a tapas bar. Start with sushi, which exhibits a distinctive creativity. Asian flavors run wild on the menu, especially among appetizers, such as ginger-scented pork pot stickers and that old warhorse, crab Rangoon. Cantonese steamed buns enfold braised Berkshire pork belly, and Kobe beef ishiyaki gets cooked at the table on a hot stone. Fish and seafood comprise the majority of the dishes, making this almost a fish house---think ginger-steamed summer flounder, with garlic gai lan and Chinkiang vinegar. But there are several steaks in case simpler fare is preferred. For dessert, check out the house-made ice creams and sorbets. BluePointe’s deep wine list has many good values and is well-stocked above the $100 mark, but some excellent values come in well below that figure, and there are many choices by the glass. On Thursdays, all Champagne and sparkling wine is half off---a real treat.
