Steaks were amazingly good. Wine list is not huge but is remarkably comprehensive. Service is friendly and professional. Slick outdoor dining ambience with lots of fire to warm you on a cool night. My wife and I were impressed with the whole experience. Recommended!

So yes, post farmer's market we dropped into Blush for some delicious flatbread and a couple of glasses of wine. Great friendly service and the flatbread(s) were a meal in themselves. We'll come back and have dinner some evening. Good spot!
