THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Seablue Restaurant Review

: Based on its name and seafood focus, one might expect something other than a dreary maroon décor, unrelieved except for monitors looped with footage of swimming fish. And based on the reputation of celebrity chef Michael Mina, one might expect more than unimaginative fare---some of it do-it-yourself, such as the make-your-own salad. A cooked appetizer, lobster corn dogs, sounds appealing---well, it’s not. There’s barely a taste of the crustacean buried beneath the heavy coating, and when you dip the “dog” into the mustard dip that accompanies, mustard is the strongest taste you get. The Maine lobster potpie is pricey at $70---even among overpriced Atlantic City casino restaurants. We advise sticking with the dishes from the wood-burning grill, like the filet mignon from Nebraska; organic Amish chicken from Pennsylvania; and Mediterranean sea bass from Greece. All are strikingly fresh and simply prepared. Desserts include ho-hums such as devil’s food cake and tiramisu. The service is lackluster at best. On the bright side, the wine list is carefully chosen; on the dark side, and this is no surprise, it’s expensive.
