A few weeks ago, we were asked to participate in a martini contest. The Junior League of Jacksonville sponspred this competition betweeen 6 local top restaurants and nightclubs.
In preparation for this competition, we tested many flavors and combinations to get what we thought might be the winning recipe.
In the end, we made a “Blood Orange Crush,” made with blood orange juice, tequila, blood orange liqueur, and topped with salt air.
The competition was stiff. But when the votes were counted up, we won! Look in next month’s Jacksonville Magazine to see pictures and a story about our cocktail.
Alongside our regular menu this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, we will also offer a Lover’s pairing menu where we’ll feature 4 romantic-themed courses paired with 4 glasses of wine for $80. Menu specials this weekend will include Thai Basil Whole Snapper, Sous Vide Curry-Rubbed Filet, Vahlrona Chocolate Terrine, and Southern Strawberry Tarts.
Thanks to all who selected us as “Most Romantic Restaurant in Jacksonville,” on researchpaperkingdom.com, and one of the top restaurants in Jacksonville on opentable.com.
This Sunday,February 10th, we will serve up a very special Chinese New Year Edition of Dim Sum Sunday at Blue Bamboo from 11-2. It’s no secret that we love our dim sum, and after the feedback from our previous Dim Sum Sundays, we are more excited than ever that we are able to offer it on Chinese New Year. During Dim Sum Sundays, we offer a la carte service of roast pork buns, turnip cakes, shrimp dumplings, pineapple buns, potstickers, and other dim sum favorites for that day only.
If you are new to Dim Sum, Dim Sum is the way Cantonese people socialize and conduct business. In any Chinatown around the World, there are Dim Sum restaurants where all menu items are served in mini steamer baskets, and small plates. Some people describe Dim Sum as Asian Tapas, where you can order as many items as you’d like, and keep ordering until you are full according TermPapersForSale24h.
