I believe it's where the current "Acqua Al 2" restaurant is located.
They were famous for their Peach Bellini's !
Restaurant had a lot of brick on the interior.
Can't think of the name....and Its killing me..!!!!!!!

          Yes, that is it. It was a chain out of Texas. I kicked off many a night out in the Gaslamp there in the 90's! It's right next door to Dick's Last Resort - farther down than Acqua al 2, I believe. It was the Cohn restaurant Tupelo for a while after Sfuzzi closed.

            Our paths must have crossed at some point...I worked at Blue Point from 96-ish to Jan 2001.

              Blue Point shortly after opening. I have another image shot at the bar somewhere- much better.

                Wow! Brings back good memories! I loved that job. I enjoyed working for the Cohns.

                  I also photographed the undercolor stage of the large painting (by Sonya Devine) the results of which were then used on all the menus.

                I actually specifically remember the 1st time I ate at Blue Point and it was in the Spring of 2001, so I just missed you. It would probably be a safe bet that our paths have crossed somewhere at some point though. :)
