Blu on Park is housed in a renovated 1920’s brownstone in the chic Upper East Side offering three floors of classic steakhouse. With interiors envisioned by NHDesign, it revels in its opulence with gold-tinted exposed brick, modern landscape paintings, marble countertops, and antique mirrors - not to mention a working fireplace for winter nights.
The menu, from chef Russell Rosenberg of the Central Park Boathouse, is traditional: shrimp cocktail, crab cakes, carpaccio, sautéed black sea bass, and seven types of steak. There's also a bar menu with truffled arancini, caviar, and veal meatballs, as well as Prohibition themed cocktails - and we're not talking about bootlegged liquor.
Private dining, large scale dinners, bar snacks, old school uptown class.
Oysters on the half shell, a grilled dry-aged porterhouse or bone-in tomahawk ribeye for two, butter-poached lobster, and Grand Marnier souffle.
The Vermonter with applejack, bourbon, brandy, maple syrup and lemon juice with a scotch floater, or simply champagne and lots of it.
