I live on the Main Line and have always wanted to try out Blush. The ambience was very cozy, yet airy. It was a warm night and outdoor seating was also available. They have a Jazz band on Thursday nights which just furthered added to the enjoyable experience. In addition they poured free glasses of champagne and went around with horsdeouvres in honor of their one year birthday and a local bridge finally opening. A 5 course tasting menu normally $75 was offered for $50 as a special. The chef comes out to speak with the table to determine likes/dislikes, any food allergies, etc. to prepare customized courses for the table. Although I didn't order the tasting menu, I thought this approach was very unique. There was a nice selection of basic items on the menu prepared very uniquely. Some places try too hard to be different by offering elaborately prepared dishes of rabbit and quail which fall short. I ordered the half Lobster tail as an entree which was amazing. It was infused with vanilla which gave it such a smooth taste and it was so tender. You would think a trendy place like this would have smaller portion sizes but they were very ample (a big plus for my boyfriend). I had a simple berry assortment for dessert but the fresh cream and pomegranate yogurt sauce it was served with made it decadent. I like how the food was not overly seasoned or salted which many chefs have a tendency to do. The only negative of the meal was the tuna ceviche. I always order ceviche when a restaurant has it on the menu because it's a favorite of mine. The preparation at Blush was more like sashimi without the rice, and the tuna was very fatty and not that tender. The ceviche I've ordered at other places is always cut up in smaller pieces and mixed in with diced peppers, onions, etc. and very well seasoned. Overall though the experience at Blush was a good one. We'll definitely be going back.

Have been there twice. Once for lunch in May and once for the outdoor cookout in September when the chef owner was cooking.

I love this place. Great food and great service. If you live on the Main Line you need to try this place.

We ate at blush last weekend and it was actually a really nice blush. But Monday evening the 4 out of 5 of us that had salad got very sick from the food. My boyfriend's father called the restaraunt and they just waved him off, said nobody else complained and we must all have a stomach virus (i was doctor diagnosed, confirmed it was the food that made me sick!). My boyfriend didn't get it, and he's the only one that didn't eat salad. The four of us that did get it live in three different states! It is completely irresponsible for them to just deny it. We didn't want a refund or anything, just to try to keep other people from getting sick. No matter how good the food was while we were there, it's completely overshadowed by the slightest lack of care at our illness as a result of eating it.

I dined out at Blush for the 2nd time just recently. In Bianca's old location on North Merion Avenue (behind the Bryn Mawr fire station off Lancaster), Blush is a welcome change. Same elegant decor, friendly and fast service, incredible food from salad through dessert and minus the pretention of some Main Line fine dining! Try the lobster cigar to start, New York Strip (my husband's favorite) or pan seared scallops for dinner and definitely don't miss one of the chocolate delights for dessert! Blush's gotten a couple of negative reviews around town but from my take, its got a lot going for it. I'll be there again soon for sure.
