Oceanfront dining is a rare commodity around here, but BLU serves it up all day long. BLU offers beachgoers seafood that bucks the traditional seaside trend of fried and fast. In fact, the restaurant has garnered a Platinum Certification through the S.C. Aquarium’s Good Catch initiative, and has recently revamped their menu with chef Glen Benskin at the helm. Lunch and dinner menu items range from ceviche “A la Barbados” and coconut curry shrimp to start, to larger entrees like shrimp pesto and linguine with clams. Choose “land,” “sea,” or “skewer” options from the grill. BLU has also added a new covered dining section separated from the tiki area. —Mary Scott Hardaway (Dish, Summer 2019)
