My wife and i loved this restaurant. Our new favorite. Pepe scallops for me. Strudel for my wife. And great blueberry martinis. Deserves more business off the main drag.

A lot of restaurants say they are Vegetarian Friendly, and that often means there's one or two entrees amidst predominately meat or fish dishes. Blue Door does a much better job of it, including fish, chicken and veggie options for many of the preparations. But...More
