I ordered the Greek Iced Tea, which was a blend of a number of different herbal and black teas and altogether very refreshing. Like everything else at blublu, it was a home brew directly from the premises.
Lisa chose the Greek Stew, a tomato based sauce with lamb, mushrooms, squash, peppers (and I thought eggplant) served on rice. It had a complex flavor, powered by a number of different spices, and really tasted good.
Neil and I shared an order of Spanakopita. This is a popular appetizer at many Greek and Mediterranean restaurants and blublu’s version held up. The best element was the mint underpinning, while the weakest element was its greasiness. Neil really liked the oven baked potatoes and the Tzatziki sauce that were served with the Roast Lamb, but he wanted a little more meat. I thought the lamb tasted good – it didn’t have that gaminess that can turn off some people – but it was slightly dry. The Mousaka that I ate was excellent. It was a large portion with tender eggplant and potatoes making up the layers with the ground beef and a strong béchamel sauce that had a hint of mace or nutmeg.

The service was professional and efficient, though it bothered me that the waiter handed me my serving and did the same thing with a patron at the adjacent table. I wanted to say “come around the table or pass the plate between other patrons.” The prices are very fair and, overall, it was a pleasant dining experience.
