On one of my last nights home, we decided to go out to eat as a family for a nice dinner. We chose Blu On the Avenue because it’s a great place to get seafood in Winter Park, and we always have a scrumptious meal. We decided to start off with oysters on the half shelf, which is one dozen fresh oysters.
With the oysters, the waitress brought out oyster crackers, and a cocktail sauce with horseradish. They tasted fresh and delicious, especially with the sauce on top of them. We ended up ordering them during their happy hour for oysters, so they were reduced priced.
When we went out to eat, it was quite chilly out. I decided I wanted something to warm me up, so I went with the Blu lobster roll with a cup of lobster bisque soup. The Blu lobster roll is fresh Maine lobster meat in a buttered lobster roll with a blu pickle, and I asked for some spinach on it and had the cup of soup as a replacement for my fries. I’m normally not the biggest fan of lobster, but this sandwich was amazing. It was oozing with cheese, and had a nice contrasting flavor with the fish. The soup was creamy and the lobster in it paired perfectly with the lobster in the sandwich. It was the best tomato soup and grilled cheese pairing of my life, and my taste buds couldn’t have been happier on a cold night.
I decided I was craving something sweet, so I asked if I could get the chocolate cake from 310, which is a triple layer cake made with chocolate morsels and genache. Just seeing what it consisted of made my mouth water, s0 I had some high expectations. They were definitely met, and I had to fight my mom off of it because it was so tasty. It wasn’t too sweet, but definitely satisfied my sweet tooth.
As always, the service was great, and the food was delicious and worth the price. It was a nice night out with my parents, and I have no doubt we’ll go back next time I’m home.
