BLANC

Food for the Epi­curean. Start with Bread Jenga, a toasted bread tower with cheese sauce, mod­eled af­ter the pop­u­lar game and al­most as fun! Then choose an en­trée from the ro­bata grill, such as Lamb Lol­lipops with roasted gar­lic and rose­mary re­duc­tion, or the Oc­to­pus S&S, served

with sweet ha­banero sauce. Blanc’s menu also in­cludes “Al­most En­trées,” de­signed to be en­joyed and shared by the en­tire ta­ble. Re­lax in the clean, con­tem­po­rary am­bi­ence as you sa­vor the cre­ations of Chris Whi­taker and chef Jean Claude Roge, whose tal­ents lift Blanc above its peers. Closed Sun­days. D
