What the Fin?!
A Buttermilk Biscuit with vanilla mascarpone ice cream is how everyone should end their night. Unfortunately on this night, patrons of Blue Fin were treated to an angry waitress and the wrong food.
Let’s rewind and take it back to the beginning when the night was young and CLEARLY less hostile.
For Restaurant Week, the place to be was Blue Fin. For those of you who don’t know, restaurant week is an amazing initiative that is done twice a year where you can have lunch for $25 or Dinner for $38 at participating restaurants.
Stepping into Blue Fin you are greeted with an AMAZING ambiance. The unique mood lighting coupled with different textured accents that line the room make for the perfect intimate setting.
What was missing from this beautiful ambiance was a pleasant attitude and decent service.
The Spicy Maki Roll for a starter was an excellent start to a rocky evening. The Crab was fresh but what made this appetizer special was the fusion of sweet and tangy with the red plums and the Miso Aioli sauce. Outside of restaurant week, a great pairing of Cabernet Sauvignon would be excellent with this dish.
The Roasted Free Range Chicken had all of the whistles but lacked flavor. Underneath the dry chicken was a bed of jersey corn, leaks,babyspinach , carrot-harrisa, and emulsion. With that medley of ingredients,one would think that Blue Fin would have mastered the art of soaking the seasoning in their popular chicken dish.
Even though the chicken wasnt the biggest hit you should definitely try the Summer Peach Shortcake. Who puts a biscuit with vanilla mascarpone ice cream..they do and it was a HIT. The biscuit had the perfect amount of softness creating a savory flavor with the ice cream without being intensely sweet.
What’s My Verdict: When a Waitress brings you a chocolate dessert and tells you that she KNOWS you ordered it even though you don’t eat chocolate..I would spend my money elsewhere. The food was mediocre and the service was equivalent to a rusty diner in the middle of sleepy hollow #stayaway
