Blue House Restaurant & Grill

You may have noticed that Lafayette Eats has been fairly silent in recent months. It’s not that I’ve given up writing reviews… more that there’s not much left for me to review! The other day, I was eating at El Chicano and noticed across the street a new place called Blue House Restaurant and Grill. It’s in the same location that Panini Deli was. I don’t know if it’s the same people or under new management. In fact, it’s been so long since I’ve eaten at Panini Deli, I barely remember it.

Anyway, today I had an opportunity to eat at this place and I’m glad I did. We came in at 12:15 for lunch, and we were only the second lunch goer there. It’s new with not much of following as of yet and I don’t think this is the ideal location either. However, being the only person in a restaurant has never bothered me. We were greeted warmly and offered a place to sit.

With a name like Blue House, I was expecting maybe Greek food, or Mediterranean food. I don’t know why I would expect that, it’s just what came to my mind. The menu itself was a little of this, a little of that. You could go American with burgers or wings, or you could go Greek with their “Santorini Bread” (rol. sliced with mozzarella and feta cheeses, olives, sun-dried tomatoes and roasted red peppers.) You could go Italian with one of their pasta dishes, or even get seafood or tacos. In short, you can circle the globe in one restaurant. This may seem odd, but I found it quirky and fun.

When we entered, there were also a number of specials on a dry erase board. In fact, so many specials I had to go back and double check them before I ordered.

I chose one of the specials, a hot ham and cheese with tomato basil soup. My friend chose the tacos carnitas. Both items were really good. The soup was really flavorful. I think the sandwich may have been a little better on a less traditional bread choose, but it was good. When my friend’s tacos arrived at the table, I had a bit of buyer’s remorse because they looked really delicious. Luckily, she’s a good friend and gave me one. It was a really tasty taco, served on corn tortillas with a sauce on the side.

There seemed to be only one server (and since there were hardly any other diners, that’s all that was necessary) but she was very nice. My water glass was continually refilled and she was around but not overbearing.

The place itself wasn’t fancy. Very casual atmosphere. I’d definitely recommend giving it a chance if you have the opportunity.

Kid friendly: Yes
Location: 11 North Earl Ave, Lafayette (map it)
Phone: (765) 588-3640
Cuisine: I’m not sure what the right choice is!

My wife and I had a rare opportunity to sneak in a date the other morning, so we opted to go out to breakfast. Although we have lived in the area for over seven years, we had never tried Shellie’s Cafe. It was a mistake to have waited so long. The building looks remarkably like […]

After eating at the Parthenon yet again, it has come to my attention that this review was really in need of a revamp. I haven’t revisited it since the Parthenon moved from Chauncey Mall, and as it’s become one of my favorite places, I figured it deserved another look. The new location is way out […]

Sushi Don Asian Fusion opened in December 2013 in the former location of Maza II, at the northwest corner of US 52 and Main Street in Lafayette. Similar to Maza, Sushi Don specializes in Korean and Japanese fare. I was not aware that Maza II had closed, and when a friend asked me to have […]

There have been a variety of restaurants at the corner of 4th and South streets. You had Blue Fin Bistro, then Lushan (both by same owners), and before that Lafayette City Grill. The newest restaurant to grace this presence in 2013 is Ichiban Sichuan. I got a chance to try it out the other day, […]

Recently I’ve seen a lot of check-ins at a place called “Professor Joe’s” in downtown Lafayette. I hadn’t heard of it, so I went looking for more information. I found their Facebook page, which describes them as an “Upscale Sports Pub.” I found this interesting. I’m not sure how you make a sports pub upscale. […]

I had an opportunity to go to Maza last night for dinner, and I’m glad I did. I get to update my review to reflect my current experience. It’s still in the old Pizza King/Sorrentos location on Sagamore Parkway, so the location for much of our area isn’t ideal, but it’s great for me since […]
