Bourbon Blue
Contemporary New Orleans-inspired dining

The Zagat Review
"If you want to get away from the Main Street college crowd in Manayunk" , this "New Orleans–inspired" American is a “lovely casual" option; although its vibe bounces between "relaxing and intimate" and "fun and upbeat" , the constants are "generous" portions of "delicious" grub, canal views from the deck and "great" happy-hour specials.

Nice riverside bar/restaurant with many happy hour specials but that's as far as I'll go. The menu suggests the portions are regular entree size dishes but are really small in comparison to other restaurants in the area. The beers on tap are interesting but most are served in 10oz glasses at 'pint' prices. Had the jambalaya on my first visit and it was bland, lacking in substance and had only 3 small shrimp, a couple pieces which I assume were sausage and one piece of what I believe was ham. And no more than 10oz. Seems 10oz is the standard here. On my second visit (while being dragged and screaming 'no, please not again') I had the blackened red fish. Tasty but is was smaller than most appetizers at other restaurants. And at $22 a pop you had to second guess whether to order another dish like you usually do at a tapas restaurant. You get a vibe in here that it's a tourist trap with the pricey small portioned plates and tiny glass drinks. FYI: it's a 2-star bar with the extra star for great service.

We only went for a drink and an appetizer (the cheesesteak egg rolls were great)! Service was great and the best (& most embarrassing) part was that I left my purse hanging over the edge of my chair and just left the restaurant!! :o We walked down a few blocks, went to get another drink and I realized (when I went to refresh my lipstick 10 mins later), that I forgot my bag at Bourbon Blue!!! I NEVER WALKED AS FAST AS I DID THAT NIGHT!! :) I walked back in, completely out of breath (out of shape) & mustered up the energy to say, "hi. I Was. Just Here. About. 20 Minutes. Ago. And. I Left....." And the manager finished my sentence... " your bag on the chair? I saw that; I put it in the back, hang tight..." At this point, all I can say is that this is the GREATEST restaurant!!!!! :) We WILL be back to actually eat more!!! Thank you, Bourbon Blue!
