We tried Bleu Monkey while visiting near the Syracuse University area. Parking is on near-by paid lots or on the street at meters and difficult to find. Don't let that stop you from visiting. The food was traditional with a casual twist. They offer an abbreviated lunch menu but if you prefer you can order from the dinner menu.
My table mate had a sushi dinner which came with a bowl of miso soup and a salad. He thought the sushi was good and the salad was fresh. I had a special lunch roll with eel (unagi). I thought it was good but came with a sauce on top that overpowered the flavor of the roll. I ordered a seaweed salad. It was very good with a light and slightly oil-vinegar flavor. There were lots of sesame seeds and a tiny bit of hot pepper.
They offer bento boxes, appetizers, soups and salads. Many guests were eating what appeared to be curry. Portions were typical. We had hot green tea which came in a large mug rather than a pot.
They offer indoor or outdoor tables and seating at the sushi bar. Service was attentive and prompt.
