Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill Restaurant Review

: Like at its original New York location, Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill is open late, until 2 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and 1 a.m. the rest of the week---perfect for a city that is famous for its nightlife. Seating options include the front room, which has sushi bar; a lounge with a bar serving the full menu; and a back area with a second sushi bar, communal table, and spaces made intimate by slatted screens. A variety of natural woods, metals and textures are featured throughout. The menu, created by brothers Bruce and Eric Bromberg, is quite long (and confusing), not even counting the omakase that can be created by the chef according to what he has received that day. Fish are flown in daily from Japan and the Atlantic ocean, and are labeled by their origin in one part of the sushi and sashimi menu. The sushi chefs pay attention to detail and presentation, such as in the cherry sea bream or raw spotted shrimp, which come with their fried heads. A popular roll is the spicy tuna with tempura flakes. The soy sauce, aged two years, and the wasabi are both top quality. From the grill, we like the bed of spicy lettuce under the salt and pepper shrimp, the vegetable tempura accompanied by a tasty sauce, the oxtail fried rice (a must), and the miso marinated black cod. Under the “kitchen specials” there is a section devoted to Wagyu beef, from which we recommend the tongue paired with daikon, shiitake and black truffle teriyaki sauce. If you’ve won at the casino below, order the $120 16 oz. Wagyu New York strip. We must also mention the fried chicken “Blue Ribbon Style” that is to be dipped in a wasabi and honey sauce. Believe it or not, it does work---though it is not a very refined dish. Finish with the ginger bread pudding topped with ginger ice cream or the very good green tea crème brûlée. When it comes to the drinks, we suggest one of the 40 fine sakés poured by the bottle, glass or wooden box. There are also signature cocktails made with shochu and fresh fruit juices, as well as wines from small producers with an emphasis on French and Californian bottles.
