This buzzy Nebraska import, with its signature blue-hued dining room and red-lit sake lounge-- has been a hit with locals since it opened earlier this year. And with prices starting at around $7.50 for eight pieces of sushi and happy hour specials everyday, it's not hard to see why. Take a trip through the extensive sushi menu and you'll find classic rainbow rolls; vegetarian rolls with tempura sweet potato; specialty maki filled with lobster knuckle and claw meat; and nigiri with baked seabass or soy-cured tuna. Also worth exploring is the sashimi which features three types of salmon, four types of tuna and nine types of white fish, including escolar--a rare find on most sushi menus. It should also be noted that Blue sources its fish from some of the best seafood purveyors in the world, yet sells it for far less than many of its big name competitors. But it's not just about sushi here-- diners can tuck into a range of Asian fusion dishes, from tenderloin served atop 500-degree river rocks to chicken satay and charred baby octopus. Be sure to give the drinks list a whirl, the saké selections and specialty cocktails are terrific.
