Nasu Blanca. Tonite. A fond farewell. Perhaps the neighborhood was not ready for fine dining. Sure, the menu was very limited: 3 entree choices besides paella, (4 choices on Friday/Saturday- their most popular menu item ONLY offered these nights: kobe beef filet, & at $48 a plate, pretty steep by most standards...understandable but personally worth every penny.) Beautiful spanish wine list, & a sake selection like nowhere else in this city, mixed with a very creative happy hour devoid of the typical raw oysters/pub grub, which is great from time to time, but IT and the crowd it brings gets...OLD. I understand where things went wrong- 1) you gotta have more entree selections. 2) why don't you serve at least Stoli vodka instead of only high end, OR a miller lite or coors lite, or something lite for my unadventurous father(!?) 3) some vegetarian entree or some alternative to a $27 entree which would be my cheapest committment under a budget. I value Nasu in that they have never let me down in my experience there, and somewhat that they'd rather fail than sell out to stoli, or miller lite, or cheaper entrees, or anything else I might complain about for why they failed. This is a big loss. We should ALL be sorry.
