Merry Christmas, Happy 4th day of Hanukkah, and somehow also National Pumpkin Pie Day. If you were born today, your birth stone is Blue Topaz, which is a good color. We’re one day closer. Shoutout to @centralcitymillworks for our beautiful, correct size tables and breathtaking booths. #yourfuturefavoriterestaurant #whenyoureunemployedtheresnovacation #comingonedaysoonerthanyesterday
The menu sees a unique American-Chinese fusion with “the best ingredients they could find,” per Jones and Horner. Their menu includes a variety of appetizers including shrimp wontons, egg drop soup, and chili oil cucumbers. The rest of their menu is separated by rice and noodles, meats, and veggies, with a few selections for each category. The menu is small, but does seem mighty. Some items we are excited to try: dan dan noodles, scallop egg foo young, peking duck (at $65), and the dry fried eggplant. Aside from the peking duck, entrees range in price from $8-$16.
Blue Giant is open for lunch Wednesday-Monday from 11:00am-2:30pm, and for dinner from 5:30-10pm. They are closed on Tuesday.
