Blue is a great place. I sat down and the waitress came over and took my drink order. The drink was made perfectly. I ordered the Thai Calamari which was amazing. I then had the chicken lemoncello served with pasta. Amazing. The place is clean, music was great, service was perfect, food was fresh, price was right. Finished off with a few drinks after dinner. The general manager was there and very nice.

The rib eye was like nothing I’ve ever tasted. Dover sole was delicious but that rib eye, man that was incredible. Cocktails were fun and fancy as was the whole vibe! Will be back!!

Union Square
About the restaurant
Named after the turn-of-the-century French novelist, Pierre Loti Union Square offers an extensive menu of European wines. French varietals dominate the offerings, but the selection includes a healthy mix of other regions and grapes (Austria, Italy, and even Turkey make appearances). There are daily pocket-friendly specials, and each pour comes with a little extra in a fancy carafe. The wine-friendly food menu includes an impressive choice of cheeses and small plates ranging from Mediterranean dips, salads and a delectable choice of chocolates for dessert. Vibe-wise, the ultra-dim lighting ensures the place stays rife with snuggly couples as well as groups of friends looking for an enjoyable night out.

About the restaurant
Amaranth is located just off Madison Ave on 62nd St , between Fifth Ave and Madison Ave, in the heart of the most famous shopping strip of the Upper East Side of Manhattan and few steps from Central Park.
We credit our success to a very honest approach to Mediterranean cuisine: a fusion of original Italian food and French food, great hospitality and the highest quality of ingredients that we use in our recipes. A large portion of specialty items that we serve are imported from Italy and France.
Our famous Focaccia Robiola, our super fresh and tasty Seafood, creative Pasta and perfectly al dente Risotto, have attracted a dedicated fan base of New Yorkers, Europeans and celebrities, who are looking for a home away from home.
Our Mediterranean Bistro has a really charming terrace during the warm season, where you can taste our delicious food or enjoy a cocktail (try our famous Frozen Cosmo!) before dinner.
