The Blue Water Grill and Soul Nights

I love the Blue Water Grill for a couple of reasons -- the food is excellent, but the real draw for me is the music that can be heard in the downstairs jazz room. One band in particular, a jazz combo called Soul Nights, is absoltely amazing. We love them so much that they even played at our wedding - they really made our party hop! The cool, smooth jazz they churn out at Blue Water is so soothing and refreshing. We'd go anywhere to hear them play, but seeing them at the Blue Water Grill is a special treat because we get to hear great sounds while eating incredible food - the whole thing is very indulgent.

A little on the food - I am partial to their roasted half chicken with garlic mashed potatoes. It's so well done and so delicious - I am getting hungry just thinking about it. Members of my family go for their seafood - grilled swordfish, grilled yellowfin tuna, lobster - they go crazy for it. They make awesome crabcakes and incredible steaks. Dessert is always terrific. They do everything well - from the appetizers and salads to the entrees and sides to dessert - they never miss. And, to top it all off, the service is excellent. We often get the same table (near the band) and therefore often have the same terrific waiter - the service is friendly and efficient and the staff is knowlegeable about the menu and how the food is prepared. You just can't miss here.

Blue Water Grill is located right on Union Square in an old bank building. It has terrific ambiance. There is also outside dining (weather permitting, although they do have heaters for chilly nights), and a cavernous dining room in the former bank's main room. Don't miss it, and say hi to Chris and Blake of Soul Nights!
