Enjoy vistas of Okinawa as you eat–kangaroo?
Sitting eight floors up, where Blueberry Café once was, 360 Grille has an unparalleled atmosphere. It’s circular layout guarantees almost every seat a panoramic view of Okinawa. In addition to it’s prime location, other aspects prove that no detail has been overlooked. Servers punch orders into tablets, and communicate via headsets. They’re also attentive—no long waits for food each time I went. Plus, doorbells on tables ensured we could easily get our server’s attention if needed. Flat screens playing nature shows line interior walls, and music playing throughout the restaurant adds to the modern vibe, too.
While I appreciate the investment in those little details, it wouldn’t much matter if the food wasn’t good. Fortunately, 360 Grille’s eye for detail extends to its kitchen’s offerings, too. The menu is an eclectic mix: the appetizers alone range from chips and salsa, to Italian bruschetta, to calamari. Entrées include salads, sandwiches, burgers and sushi, plus steaks, burgers, and interestingly, exotic meat like kangaroo and ostrich.
recommend trying the sampler skewer plate, if you’re even a little interested in discovering what camel or crocodile taste like. The skewers were seasoned differently, were savory and juicy, and so close to meat you’ve already tried, you probably couldn’t tell the difference in a taste test. The crocodile skewer was a favorite, coated in herbs, and akin to seasoned chicken. The sampler plate includes two skewers each of camel, kangaroo, crocodile, ostrich, lamb, pork, beef, and chicken, and includes a cabbage and iceberg salad with orange wedge.
If the thought of eating kangaroo makes you queasy, the kalua pork sandwich is a safer, yet equally tasty choice. This popular Hawaiian dish was salty and full of flavor, and went well topped with shredded coleslaw on a big, fluffy bun. A side of curly fries doused in Cajun seasoning complemented the sandwich, though there are numerous sides to choose, from healthy to indulgent. While you may not have room for dessert, 360 offers many tempting choices, including several different kinds of cheesecake, and a sweet yet tangy apple tart.
American style breakfasts, such as eggs and bacon sets, are available earlier in the day on weekends. As it’s a new venue, 360 Grille is testing different lunch and dinner hours, so their Facebook page is the best place to check for the most current times.
