THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Blue Mill Restaurant Review:


Tucked into a curve where Commerce and Barrow Streets meet the once-beloved space that housed Grange Hall, Blue Mill looks more like a movie set than a West Village neighborhood eatery. Once inside, you know you are experiencing authentic Old New York. The fading beach-scene murals, the beveled glass sconces, and the white tiled-walls discreetly but persistently claim their Deco heritage. The bar, complete with original wooden stools, hosts local regulars in addition to dinner patrons---and it's no wonder, considering the generous drinks. The menu is neither extensive nor terribly creative but some dishes are truly noteworthy. The caramelized onion tart combines sweet onions and ricotta with only a hint of crust to complement the texture. For a lighter appetizer, the roasted beets with goat cheese and horseradish vinaigrette, and the watercress and endive salad with Maytag blue cheese and walnut vinaigrette present two excellent options. Though main courses can change seasonally, the menu regularly features fresh seafood. The pan-seared salmon, served over a ragoût of zucchini and eggplant, combines subtle flavors. The only miss is the tuna: though tasty, it would be better served rare. Service can be a bit slow but maybe that's just part of the charm.
