Blue by Eric Ripert
Blue by Eric Ripert Review
Top Chef judge Eric Ripert's trademark ethereal seafood (executed by his handpicked brigade), flawless but not fawning service, swish setting, and soothing sophistication sans pretension make Blue one of the Caribbean's finest restaurants. Choose from a regular four-course or the chef's hedonistic six- and seven- course tasting menus (with or without wine pairing). Many dishes are clever riffs on the mother restaurant (New York's celebrated Le Bernardin), using the island's natural bounty (the tribute to the great Bernardin tuna foie gras adds Cayman sea salt). The sensuous counterpoint of flavors, textures, even colors is unimpeachable, as in sautéed kingklip with avocado-coconut cream, sunflower sprouts, and lime sauce vierge; or melt-in-your-mouth chocolate mousse with caramelized banana, mango-saffron sauce, and cocoa sorbet. The vast wine list offers big names but also showcases hot new regions and lesser-known varietals that offer quality and comparative value.
