Blue Ocean Robata and Sushi Bar Carlsbad

Blue Ocean Robata and Sushi Bar opened earlier this month in downtown Carlsbad. The restaurant is owned by the same group that operates Loveboat Sushi. Loveboat started as a single restaurant in Oceanside and now has 4 locations in San Diego county. Blue Ocean offers a similar sushi menu to the loveboat locations and then expands on it with a selection of small plates, yakitori and entrees. They have brought on Chef Andy Halvorsen who worked at A.R. Valentien in La Jolla and have also added a craft cocktail list that is very nice and well executed.

They have a good happy hour with drink specials and 20% off items from the Robata grill. The Drink and all three skewers ran me 20 before tip. Great price for the quality of food.

I forewent any sushi items as I have eaten at Loveboat quite a few times and wanted to try the new offerings. I can recommend the Albacore Delight roll though as its my goto from them.
