Constantly showing up here with their terrific fried chicken and sushi.
Give a suspiciously over-polite welcome to Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill. As in New York Blue Ribbon. It opens tonight at the Grove. (See the space and sushi right here.)
These guys did a lot for downtown Manhattan dining these last 23 years. Now they’ve stuck their beautiful Japanese jewel box right where you could most use it, so you can calm yourself with some wasabi-honey fried chicken, black-vinegar-glazed pork ribs, whole-fish sashimi and sushi rolls involving half a lobster.
Plus, you don’t really even need to acknowledge the Grove if it’s not your thing. Just roll up to the valet on 3rd Street. Enter the long corridor full of Tokyo street art and go inside.
But you can always keep going out through the front door to a table placed right alongside the singing fountain.
You’re either with or against singing fountains.
