Blue Water Grill

Blue Water Grill

Cuisine: Seafood

Summary: Blue Water Grill, located in a landmark building in Union Square, is the perfect destination for fresh seafood and sushi. Outdoor seating provides for great people watching. You can also enjoy soothing jazz music with your meal.

Cititour Review: If you are looking for the perfect place for a date - this is it! Great atmosphere, great drinks, and very delicious food for pretty reasonable prices. You have to be a seafood lover though. There's only one entree choice for meat or chicken. Blue Water is known for its Chilean Sea Bass which is prepared with an Asian flare and the swordfish is to die for. There are plenty of appetizer choices and lots of sushi/sashimi combinations to start out with. Blue Water also offers a variety of bisque soups. Save some room for the chocolate fondue dessert which is lots of fun to eat and is mouth watering. You can dip everything from apples to Rice Krispy Treats in a smooth and creamy chocolate sauce. For jazz lovers, there is the Jazz Room downstairs which has live entertainment. But if you're trying to get to know someone, stick with the main room upstairs which is quieter and more romantic.
