 Moxie’s Opening Set For Mid-July

Brad Friedlander and his team were able to transform Moxie unto the new Blu restaurant in just seven weeks, which is set to open July 13 in Beachwood.

While Blu will retain some of the features seen with Moxie, it will certainly be its own place. For instance, the long mural that hung over the Moxie kitchen was polished up and left in place. The menu will also keep the Moxie burger.

However, the key focus on Blu is seafood such as the pepper kung-pao snapper and crab cakes.

The dining room measures 6,200 square feet that includes both two top and four-top tables, curved booths and a row of banquettes. Some tables will make you feel you’re in a Disney World teacup but restaurant style.

There will also be a bar with a minute number of shelves to contrast the gray cement-tile wall.

The menu offers an eclectic mix of snacks and sides, and vegetarians can enjoy the ricotta and gnocchi.

  • An outside bar on the long patio separates Blue from Red the steakhouse.
  • Joseph Lang will be the executive chef. He was a member of the Cleveland Eats culinary council and worked at Red.
  • Vic Savage came up with the frontis artwork and vibrant patio columns, taking him no more than 10 days to get done.
