On the Menu:
Blue Morel’s menu changes depending on the season, so when you visit the meals may have changed. This should give you an idea of what the restaurant has to offer, though!
For those of us that enjoy the flavors of cold, uncooked seafood (who doesn’t?!), the raw seafood bar is a big draw at Blue Morel. At the seafood bar, you’ll find clams on the half shell, oysters, and jumbo shrimp cocktail.
Blue Morel’s sushi selection has grown with the popularity of the raw fish dish over the years. A lot of people don’t realize, however, that a lot of sushi choices are actually cooked. Consult your server or check out the menu if you’re interested in sushi but aren’t ready for raw fish in your face just yet.
Blue Morel offers up some truly delectable choices when it comes to sushi, like the grilled shrimp roll with mushrooms, avocado, and a yuzu mayonnaise. The dragon roll is another favorite. This is made of avocado, cucumber, and eel. The spicy salmon roll is another choice. You’ll find cucumber, avocado, tobiko, and a sriracha aioli.
Main course choices at Blue Morel include the following but are subject to change: yellowfin tuna, chili-cinnamon glazed Chilean seabass, pan-roasted organic Scottish salmon, grilled line-caught swordfish, pressed Goffle Road half chicken, grilled free-range leg of lamb, and a USDA prime Cedar River Farm New York strip loin.
