Bluefin Restaurant Review

: Blue lighting and sleek, modern furniture lend this downtown lounge a relaxing ambience. Bluefin’s dining room is spacious and dimly lit. Diners can opt for traditional tables or comfortable sofas. The vibe pairs well with the sushi rolls, nigiri or sashimi, including the creatively named fusion sushi, such as the Mama Kimchee (yellowtail topped with spicy kimchi) or the Majik Mushroom (Kobe beef with truffle butter and mushroom salt). But picky kids (and the sushi-phobic) can find plenty to eat among the entrées, such as flatbreads, pork shoulder tacos and ramen bowls. Bluefin offers several brands of saké (hot and cold), while the wine selection features the usual affordable suspects without much in the high-end department. Desserts include sticky buns and crème brûlée.
