Blue Ribbon Bakery Kitchen is a West Village neighborhood favorite and destination restaurant. Restaurateurs Bruce and Eric Bromberg discovered in 1995 a 140 year-old wood burning brick oven and lovingly restored it and built Blue Ribbon Bakery Kitchen around it. We now proudly operate the only existing wood fired brick bread oven in New York City using methods learned from our time at Poilane Bakery in France, including challah, matzoh, and classic french baguettes. Our menu is eclectic and varied. Menu highlights include our award-winning Fried Chicken, Grilled Lamb Chops, Beef Marrow, locally caught fish and whole roasted pasture-to-table animals prepared in our brick oven, as well as a broad offering of lighter fare. At the heart of each Blue Ribbon Bakery experience is the wood-burning oven that sends the smell of freshly baked bread throughout the dining room. Don’t leave without walking downstairs to see the bakers in action.

We loved the Blue Ribbon Kitchen Bakery! We would not miss their closing brunch for the world. The waiter was awesome and was unbelievably nice to our 4 year old daughter!

One of my all time faves. We had to go one last time before the location changed. Service, food and ambiance all great.

The food is very good, especially the red trout. The atmosphere is casual, and the service fits that while being very effective. When they were out of the pinot noir I ordered, they recommended another that was excellent. I will visit again after they move to the Financial District.

Glad we got in one last Blue Ribbon meal before they close. End of an Era.

My fourth or fifth time there. We live in Chicago but visit New York frequently and always try to have dinner here. The food is over-the-top amazing. And still best fried chicken in the world.

Staff is unusually gracious and helpful--as good as the food, which isn't the norm in NYC. Sadly, the restaurant will move to Wall St. area at the end of the month, so we will lose our neighborhood gem.

Delicious food, nice atmosphere. Amazing homemade bread came out warm, but at the same time as our entrees. Great for a business lunch.
