NEW YORK, May 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Blue Planet Grill (http://www.bpgnyc.com/) is quickly becoming the new port of call for Manhattan diners looking for something out of the ordinary for lunch, dinner or simply a night out with friends. Located in the Financial District across the street from the World Trade Center, Blue Planet Grill offers a sophisticated fusion menu in an upscale, but unintimidating atmosphere. Plus, the restaurant will even deliver for those who can't make time to eat in. Browse the complete menu at http://www.bpgnyc.com/our-menu.html.
"It has been a lifelong dream to open a restaurant like this one. I love when people enjoy my food," enthused Jacob Krumgalz, owner of Blue Planet Grill. "Today, we are proud to say that no other bar and restaurant in the Financial District offers the combination of atmosphere and thrilling menu options that we have at Blue Planet Grill. We're constantly experimenting and evolving our menu; our goal is simply to never be boring or predictable."
Boldness and creativity are in Blue Planet Grill's DNA, but all that would be nothing were it not for the reliance on fresh, local, handmade food. As Krumgalz explained, providing diners with an experience that surpasses their expectations is his primary goal. That philosophy helped Blue Planet Grill earn the 2012 Talk of the Town Excellence in Customer Satisfaction award.
One of the main attractions of Blue Planet Grill is the cocktail menu, which is the brainchild of master mixologist Artemio Vasquez. Taking his cue from the verve and rhythm of the Financial District, Vasquez has concocted some truly energizing drink selections. The WallStreet Kick, for instance, features espresso-infused tequila and dark creme de cacao, while Red Finance earns its moniker from the jalapeno-infused Cointreau which adds heat to an otherwise cool, fruity cocktail. For those just looking to sample some exceptional tequila, minus the added ingredients, the Tequila Flight Tasting fits the bill: three distinctive tequilas, served up with fresh lime and a chaser of spicy tomato make for a powerful team.
In addition to world-class cocktails, Blue Planet Grill rings the bell on some fantastic appetizers and entrees. While many fusion restaurants have trotted out fish tacos in recent years, Blue Planet Grill takes the notion of the fish taco to an entirely different level. The mango chutney adds an Indian element to the dish, while the fish-filled, batter-fried dough is hearty without being heavy. For a more terrestrial taco experience, Blue Planet Grill also serves short rib tacos, which are every bit as interesting as they sound.
From 5 to 8 pm, Blue Planet Grill offers its prix fixe dinner menu, which includes an appetizer, one glass of wine and an entree, for only $25. The lunch prix fixe menu is only $15, a value that's hard to match considering the high quality of the food and drinks. Blue Planet Grill is open seven days a week for lunch and dinner. Even if Wall Street is sleeping, this hidden gem of fusion fare is ready to excite the taste buds.
