Blush Restaurant was an unfortunate disappointment. I was working with their event coordinator to set up for our wedding rehearsal dinner for 25 people. We started talking 2 weeks before the event. They had staff turnover that caused a delay in communication. The Monday before...More

Great evening ambiance and wonderful food. We enjoyed steak bites (fair), lobster Mac, scallops, and halibut all wonderful!

Steaks were amazingly good. Wine list is not huge but is remarkably comprehensive. Service is friendly and professional. Slick outdoor dining ambience with lots of fire to warm you on a cool night. My wife and I were impressed with the whole experience. Recommended!

So yes, post farmer's market we dropped into Blush for some delicious flatbread and a couple of glasses of wine. Great friendly service and the flatbread(s) were a meal in themselves. We'll come back and have dinner some evening. Good spot!
