I've been here many times, but have not reviewed before now. What prompted me to this time was due to what I felt was a shift in service. I've always viewed the Blue Spoon as a refined and casually elegant little hideaway on the East...More

Everyone had burgers and we enjoyed them, but the warm potato salad was what was truly special. The waitress spoke highly of the coconut flan, and that was a hit as well. The beer choices were excellent.

We visited Blue Spoon mid-week. It answered our need of a restaurant with a variety of smaller dishes that would satisfy without "stuffing." The menu of tapas, appetizers, and entrees provided a wide variety of meals to select from. Everything we tried was tasty, served...More
