We found a culinary revolution transforming the dining scene in Sugar Land. Two locals, Amy Karnani and Junnajet Hurapan, also known as Chef Jett, created Blu Restaurant | Lounge, a boutique restaurant with a Euro-Asian cuisine and a spacious and airy environment to match.
When Co-owner Amy discovered award-winning Chef “Jett,” a native of Bangkok, Thailand, she knew he was the perfect Chef and co-owner for her dream restaurant. Chef Jett hit culinary heights on the East Coast working with some of the country’s most acclaimed restaurateurs and as the executive chef of groundbreaking eateries like Ruby Foo’s in New York and Buddakan in Atlantic City. Chef Jett says, “I was so tired of the ordinary, everyday cuisine. My background spans cuisine from Thai to French Vietnamese, New American and Mediterranean, so I wanted to create a menu that reflects that world view and offers an eclectic palette of evolving tastes.”
Multi-cultural influence and exotic intrigue pervades every element of Blu, The cuisine is light but not to be taken lightly. Experiment with many delectable choices served in tapa-esque portions. Vegetarian and gluten-free choices complete the spectrum of innovative selections. Chef “Jett’s” wife, Chef Jira is the pastry chef who prepares everything from scratch from the brioche buns for the handmade sliders to the several innovative desserts, most notably the Molten Chocolate Cake featuring drunken cherries, raspberry coulis with a side of vanilla ice cream.
At night Blu is where the action is…and there are several cocktails on the menu you’re unlikely to find anywhere else. Orient a L’Orange was created specifically with chef Jett’s culinary background in mind. It’s European, it’s Asian and comes together seamlessly blending Manderine Vodka, Ginger Liqueur, Citrus, Orange Blossom, and Thai Basil Seed.
Chef Jett grills out on the patio Sunday & Mondays while ESPN football games are broadcasted live. Bring all your friends to enjoy chef’s tailgate menu from 4pm until midnight. Blu Restaurant | Lounge also offers a semi-private dining area with its own bar and a VIP lounge for private parties.
Enjoy a DJ at Saturday brunch and live jazz music at Sunday brunch, while indulging in classics like buttery French Toast with bananas and sugar walnut cinnamon or innovations like the Eggs Norwegian, with chives, smoked salmon, and a tangy lemon-hollandaise sauce. Choose from five different varieties of Eggs Benedict…and every brunch meal comes with a complimentary cocktail!
Blu Restaurant | Lounge is a result of many years of artistic effort, and as a result of that dedication, the comprehensive dining experience at Blu is complex and inspiring!
BLU Restaurant | Lounge is located in Sugar Land, Texas.
