THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Ruby Foo's Dim Sum & Sushi Palace Restaurant Review

: Ruby Foo's riotous blend of Asian kitsch, carefully calculated food and savvy service make it one of the few destination eateries on the Upper West Side. The guest count at dinner sometimes tops 1,400, so don't expect to carry on an intimate conversation. The canny Steve Hanson, who operates half a dozen popular eating places in Manhattan, tapped into David Rockwell's visual vitality. Rockwell responded with a trifecta---three levels of dining with Far Eastern whimsy. A curving staircase rises past a bento box-like wall of niches. Each of two floors has its own sushi bar, but Foo food takes in China, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore as well. Then there is a glorious anomaly---the city's biggest slice of all-American chocolate layer cake, six inches high and a lusty pound's weight, with vanilla ice cream. Ruby Foo's sushi dessert is sweets in the shape and look of various Japanese hand rolls. Big-time fun. Also located at 1626 Broadway, 212-489-5900.
