THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Nasu Blanca Restaurant Review

: It’s tempting to call Nasu Blanca a “fusion” restaurant; its name, after all, is a blend of the Japanese and Spanish words for “white eggplant,” and dishes from both cuisines are featured on the menu. The fusion, however, is less of ingredients---no sashimi paella here---than of cultural styles: a dinner is a fine melding of Asian refinement and Mediterranean sensuality. Japanese and Spanish appetizers (zensai and tapas) include such disparate dishes as Japanese eggplant with miso sauce and heirloom tomato gazpacho enriched with blue crab. A short but luxurious entrée list follows, leaning to the European side of the ledger. (Try the pumpkin-crusted rack of lamb.) Diners will also find several topnotch signature paellas. Prices can soar, especially if you indulge in Kobe beef filet. To cut the tab down to size, dine at the downstairs bar, where you can make an ample meal of zensai and tapas at happy-hour prices.
