Amara Kitchen & Cocktails is the new taste in Blue Point, offered with a Greek accent.
Amara, which succeeds Blue restaurant, has the same sprawling style, but all polished and ready for a crowd. Expect plenty of catering here.
For diners, however, the early recommendation is to pick less-complicated dishes to ensure a respectable meal. Some good choices: a generous Greek salad, tasty saganaki made with graviera cheese, and lemon chicken. Disappointments: greasy braised lamb youvetsi, and a fisherman's soup with the texture and taste of a renegade pasta sauce.
Service is friendly; the mood upbeat.
