Blind Tiger is the kind of underground bar that announces itself, loudly, with a giant tiger-themed mural and a Voltron-esque tiger’s head that glowers down from above the doorway. If you visit on a busy Friday night, the music will be cranked up too loud, and some random movie will be projected onto two or three different surfaces. It can be altogether too much. Or, if you’re in the right kind of mood, it can be pretty great. While Blind Tiger doesn’t present itself as the kind of place where you would come to have a sit-down dinner, its repertoire of Asian-fusion small plates consistently overshoot expectations. Highlights include Thai-style grilled duck hearts, ahi tuna poke, and crab cake with yuzu-kosho tartar sauce. Dollar oysters headline the bar’s well priced early-bird and late-night happy hour menus.
