Blue Ribbon Bakery Kitchen
Fried Chicken Is Out of This WorldThe Blue Ribbon group tout their fried chicken as the best in the city, and in contention for the best in the land. Having grown up in the Midwest, with the likes of Strouds, I can say with confidence that their claim is valid. This was some of the best fried chicken I have had anywhere. They have some great inventive, yet classic dishes, on the menu - think "classic with a twist". We will be going back again soon.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic service and greatFantastic service and great food. They accomodated us and put a party of 2 in a booth that could seat 4, even on a Saturday night. They even had extra bread from their bakery downstairs in a basket on our way out! All in all, great.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMBest West Village RestaurantMy favorite NYC restaurant, great every time and I've been going to BRB for years.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, good service,Great food, good service, and nice atmosphere - very reliable.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMI've been here 5 times now.I've been here 5 times now.

I went with a group of friends and we started with a cheese plate and one of their specials which was a grilled spicy avocado- a really unique taste. The burger was perfection and we finished with the bread pudding with hot fudge which was HUGE. I can't wait to go back and eat again, this will definitely become a regular spot for me.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe cheese selection was veryThe cheese selection was very nice, and of course the vegetable sides were magnificent. The bread is a killer and we enjoyed the loaf we took home, a sweet whole wheat. We had theater and was running late and the staff was very accomodating.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a good option!I have been here several times & it never disappoints! A group of us had dinner here on Thursday & the food was delicious. The fried chicken is a must try! The staff was very accommodating, as we had 2 late arrival guests joining for drinks. This is a good neighborhood place - worth checking out if you are in the West Village.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMAbout 20 years ago I frequentedAbout 20 years ago I frequented the Thompson Street location...it was over the top back then, but frankly it be became a bit too long to wait for a table (up to 1 1/2 hours!). Hence, as Yogi Berra once said: "Nobody goes there anymore - it is too crowded!"
The other night I decided to go to the Blue Ribbon Bakery at the last minute ...and one of the original owners is there and he was so accomodating! I had to change my reservation to 3 persons upon my arrival and he made it work! He is a super guy and he runs a tight ship!
The wait staff are real pros - they make it look easy...they work together and their efforts result in a seamless, perfect meal. food is A +, recognizable food with high end character!! Glad I went back !!3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time and exceeded expectationFirst time and exceeded expectations. Loved the brick walls and heavy wood design. Had reservation, was sat right away at corner window table. It was only 7pm they were out of one app and one main. The app was marrow which I wanted, the other was bass which they subbed with Cod. The big deal here is outrageous fried chicken which lived up and past all buzz. Be sure you to check out bakery downstairs which was going strong at that hour, and there is free day old bread on the way out!3/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
