Blue Sea Grill closes


Blue Sea Grill, the seafood restaurant next to Power Plant Live, closed its doors for good Saturday.

Five years ago when it opened, I gave it three stars across the board and said, "Blue Sea Grill is the current spot to see and be seen, a place to nibble on domestic caviar and sip a Blue Hawaii martini. Its bar and dining areas are chic and minimalist, with bare wood floors and a strictly contemporary look, except for the traditional seacoast art on the walls."

I'll miss it, and I think the city will miss it. Just not enough, I guess. ...

As another one in a long list of fine-dining restaurant closings recently, it makes me sad; but I'm also sorry we've lost one of the few local seafood restaurants in the Inner Harbor area that weren't chains or mostly tourist-oriented. (By that I mean specializing in crabs and crab cakes.) It had good food and a lot of style.

By the way, if you missed Jill's wrap-up story yesterday on how the recession is affecting the restaurant business, here it is.
