Pam's Posthaste...just a quick look.
Deep Blu Seafood Grille/Wyndham Grand
To sample the drinks and bar bites at this cool- (looking in from the outside) looking establishment.
So, let's break-it-down.
We self-parked at an open space curbside, near Another Broken Egg.
A short walk later, we strolled into the destination we had been eyeing for a few weeks, Deep Blu Seafood Grille.
Stopping at the hostess station, we were warmly greeted by a smiling and welcoming individual. We appreciated her attitude.
The place was almost empty, and she offered up some seating options. Seats were available indoors or outdoors. Swiftly, we made our decision.
First, let me say the stylish, circular place is intimate in size, with a giant dose of trendy New York or South Beach-ish flavor. The combination of whites and blues, the subdued lighting (our favorite) as well as the over-sized looping aquarium images overhead create a calm and utterly inviting ambience. All good with us.
The bar chairs (they are much too plush to be called stools) are heavy, beautifully upholstered and very comfortable.
Before bottoms were in seats, another smiling face, Erin, greeted us, and welcomed us in an engaging fashion.
With expert efficiency she provided pertinent details of drinks and menu items. She charmed us with her enthusiasm, and attention to detail, as this was our first visit.
We were impressed, and we had not even ordered.
I ordered the Goldenrod. How can you go astray with a combination of Grey Goose La Poire, St. Germain, Fresh Lemon (it's the FRESH part that makes the drink) and Prosecco. $11.
Gerry opted for a Lemon Drop. You know about that one, I am sure. I sampled his and I approved.
Both were spot-on!
Blu Crab Nachos -- Blue Corn Tortillas, Jumbo Lump Crab, Pice de Gallo, and Pepper Jack Cheese Sauce.
So flavorful, these arrived in a bowl, with a generous amount of crab and sauce. We have a new favorite kind of nachos.
Blackened Mahi-Mahi Tacos -- Cabbage Slaw, Pico de Gallo, Cilantro Sour Cream.
Like the nachos, the serving was generous and full of flavor. Gerry is not even a huge fan of cilantro as a rule, but he left not a morsel behind.
Can't wait to order both of these in the near future.
Both were $12.
Key Lime Gelee - We shared. A graham cracker crust, a mild and smooth filling was topped with mango caviar and Key Lime powder on the side. Beautiful presentation, but wait for it...when the mango caviar springs forth on your tongue it is extraordinary. Maybe I'm just easy to please, but it was fun and delicious!
Bonus -- Brioche bread, piping hot from the oven. It really came in handy. The sauce from those incredible nachos in the bottom of the bowl was not going to jump out by itself.
