Blu Seafood and Bar, Durham, Reviews & Discussion

I know there's another thread somewhat dedicated to Blu, but here's my attempt to start a more comprehensive one. As a recap this restaurant is in the old Grasshopper space, next to Vin Rouge but is no longer associated with GHG.

Just thought I'd chime in and say I had some surprisingly good oysters at Blu yesterday. Like, I was pleasantly surprised when I took down the first and thoroughly satisfied by the last. At $2.50/piece that's getting up there, especially for the area and the space, but at least they were tasty. The shucking skill was marginal, a bit flinty, but, again, the quality was there.

My smoked salmon sandwich was pretty good, but it seemed like the salmon had been placed on the the bread with, as opposed to against, the grain of the fish. This made it difficult to bite through in one go. A minor quibble, but I enjoyed the fish and would've enjoyed the whole plate more if it had been more intelligently constructed.
