The Wu family has established a space that's as comfortable for hosting an intimate meal for two, as it is for a large corporate meeting. Either way, dig into that Rainbow Roll and enjoy..When you've got diet restrictions, or are just trying to eat a little bit healthier (aka, less cheese?), dining out can be a bit of a pain. Yes, much like wandering amongst the cereal aisle at the grocery store, there are too many options, too many questions and too few people pointing you toward the best choices. Which is why family-owned and operated Blue Grotto Sushi Tapas & Bar provides someone to steer you in the right direction. Sheri Boulden, a certified health and nutrition coach, will lead you to the Wu family's creations that best suit your needs. We know because that's what she did for us.
Speaking of the Wu family, this isn't their first foray into the world of food service. For nearly two decades they've been perfecting the art of sashimi and sushi-rollin', not to mention creating admirably plated Asian tapas for sharing (if you're nice, that is). And it's authentic, too. Options like the Rainbow Roll, with its blend of tuna, salmon, avocado and cucumber, is as delicious as it is colorful. Even better, we enjoyed it with a freshly mixed Cosmo in the intimate, lounge-like area to the side, featuring ornate pillows, cushioned benches, low tables and flickering candles that make for an environs that is both relaxing and inviting. This is a space ideal for the casual evenings, as well as the business-meeting-over-dinner. The full bar and free wifi help, but so does the warm welcome we received when walking in. Of course, that's no surprise since the main goal at Blue Grotto is to make sure the guests leave happy and full o' delicious cookin'. Mission accomplished.
