Restaurant review: Blend
Restaurant review: Blend



When I arrive at a new establishment, it's important to me that a good tone is set. When we entered Blend, my date's favorite artist was playing at a reasonable volume. This was a positive sign. More foreshadowing of a pleasant night: patrons having a conspicuously good time. With excellent music and happy clientele, I thought, “Laissez les bons vins rouler.”



Our waiter, Kevin, got cozy with us and took the time to explain the limited menu of small plates and desserts. He was knowledgeable about the wines and easily suggested a French grape blend to accompany our charcuterie plate comprising Ville Platte country pâté, smoked duck ham and cured lamb carpaccio. We ordered one glass to share and were surprised when the wine arrived split into two glasses. Nice. The pâté was very firm in texture, but the outstanding flavor, highlighted with bold black pepper, made up for the heaviness. Click here to read more. —DJ Beauticia
