Blue Ribbon Restaurant Review

About the restaurant: Chefs-restaurateurs Bruce Bromberg and Eric Bromberg bring their vision of New American cuisine to The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, in the space of the former Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill. Some of the design elements will take you to the Big Apple: faux-distressed tile on the floor and walls, an industrial ceiling, classic mahogany bar and tabletops, and red velvet banquettes.

Food & Drinks: The menu is nearly the same as the NYC counterpart with just a few Vegas-only items, such as the branzino; the pork chop with bourbon glaze; and The Cosmopolitan, a multi-tiered extravaganza from the raw bar including Siberian sturgeon caviar, oysters, clams, shrimp, lobster and crab, served with a bottle of Champagne. A must-try is the fried chicken for which the restaurant is famous --- a generous portion of breast, thigh and leg covered with a thick, crunchy batter. We also enjoy the paella Basquez, a mix of saffron rice, chicken, mussels, crab, shrimp, clam, squid and chicken sausage; and the pu pu platter with BBQ wings, pork ribs, sesame shrimp, fried oysters, chicken skewers and duck egg rolls that comes with a mini flaming grill to enable you to caramelize each bite. A well-rounded list of libations includes saké, wine, beer, spirits and cocktails, like the John Daly with house-made tea vodka and lemonade. Chocolate lovers will not be disappointed in the chocolate chip bread pudding complemented by vanilla ice cream and hot fudge.
