A few weeks ago Vue, the restaurant on the 8th floor of 4th Avenue's Hotel Le Bleu, opened for biz. That there above is what it looks like, and the second shot is of the al fresco terrace area with its view stretching from the Gowanus Canal to Downtown Brooklyn and beyond. The restaurant's operators are also going to open a rooftop lounge in about a week and a half. Vue's menu is here; apps run from $7-$12 and include stuff like samurai spiked crab cake, while entrees go from $17 to $28. There have been a few writeups about the Vue, with the Times, for example, talking about the executive chef's background (he "worked at the Monkey Bar and is the chef at China 1 in the East Village"). The most scathing commentary thus far comes from FIPS who says, in part, "The place was decorated in a budget/wannabe hipster/chic style."
