Lunch, Garden of Dreams, Come to Vue


Vue, the restaurant and lounge perched atop Gowanus’s very own Hotel Le Bleu, has just debuted a lunch and brunch menu. Chef Chris Cheung will offer such apps as a Samurai spiked crab cake and chilled butternut squash soup, and such entrees as Denmark baby back ribs with macaroni and bleu cheese and the somewhat hilariously named “The Garden of Dreams, too Many Vegetables to List.” When the Early Word visited Vue last month, it observed the restaurant’s similarity to Kurve and bemoaned its “deeply dated, hotel-ish” food; time will tell if its lunch menu can throw a curve ball of its own.
