« Dinner At Home with a New Chef | Main | Strip House Livingston - Restaurant Review »


Shouldn't risotto be made with arborio rice? Mine was soupy and made with orzo, not what I expected from an italian restaurant with "good" reviews. When I inquired about the risotto the owner Elio got offended and created a scene.
My wife's oso buco came out 15 minutes before my entree and was tough and chewy.
The atmosphere mimicked that of an old basement: it was out-dated and stuffy with awkward lighting.
Will not return or recommend.

You're right, my reluctance to return is purely personal, completely subjective, and in hindsight inappropriate.

I am changing the review.


You seem to have no complaints about Blu...complimenting the food and the service...yet you have no plans to return? My wife and I found the food to be exceptional...interesting, tasty, and more than enough to justify the minimal increase in prices (still less than the going rate). The service was attentive and the decor was quite nice. This is the first I've questioned your perspective. :)
