American
Chef-favorite, late-night brasserie featuring raw bar, seafood, American dishes & cocktails in a convivial setting. Blue Ribbon's bustling dining room and friendly bar have been serving neighborhood regulars and culinary industry insiders since 1992. The Bromberg Brothers' eclectic vision first sprang to life here and has blossomed into an iconic destination known for its late-night dining scene where the country's top chefs congregate and eat after closing their own kitchens. Whether you're craving a burger and a beer, a hanger steak and a pint, a roasted rack of lamb and a deep red cabernet or the famed shellfish platter and champagne, Blue Ribbon is famously open late, seven nights a week.

    Do not skip the spicy fish soup (though, it is actually spicy). It was an amazing way to start the meal and not something we will forget any time soon. The steak tartare was also a great starter, would definitely have been enough to share. The duck club and the short rib (special) were delicious but that soup was a stunner.

    Small hidden gem. The steak Tartar is probably the best I've had. Very tasty. Had a great cucumber gin drink to start. Also Paella was great. Took home because it was a large portion.

    So I have been to Blue Ribbon before but not since the whole COVID thing. Everything was delicious as expected. It was a group of 5 of us and we got the half-round banquette by the front of the dining room (first time having that table and it is the best seat in the house in my opinion. Our group shared some of my old favorites and tried some new items. Apps we got escargot, bone marrow, foie gras terrine, steak tartar, pork ribs, and watercress salad. All of which were outstanding though I was blown away that the escargot had changed. The old escargot was a shining star in my opinion, but I was over my disappointment quickly with how incredible everything else was. The cocktails we absolutely delicious as well. Though we ordered pretty standard classics in Americanos and Negronis, it was hands down the best Americano I have ever had. For entrees we had the fried chicken, the duck breast special, the duck club, the hangar steak with truffle butter and two sides (asparagus and the collard greens) all of the entrees were superb however I have to call out the collard greens for being disturbingly delicious. We were all shocked at how great they were. These were what the collard green has always aspired to be. One of my guests had a few too many and I was aware of the staff keeping an eye on them. As a restaurant owner, I can't fault them at all and was a bit embarrassed by my guest. We pretty much sped through dessert with just some espressos, a scoop of sorbet and 2 milk punch and vacated the table as other guest were waiting. Out of my guests, I was the only one familiar with Blue Ribbon and I was eager to share this restaurant with them. I was through the roof with how delighted everyone was with their experience. Thank You Blue Ribbon

    The service was terrible. They did not coordinate food arrival times and had more dishes than would fit on the table. They shoved the glasses to the edge of table so it was uncomfortable to try and eat. The escargot tasted like dirt and the clams were over cooked and tough. The servers dropped dirty dishes onto one of our group’s lap without even an apology. They finished the service by getting hitting one of our party in the face with a doggie bag as they were not paying attention. There so many options in Soho I recommend skipping The Blue Ribbon and going somewhere nice.

    Very nice meal with good service. The restaurant is not very big so the tables are very close together. The food is prepared well and worth the $$$. The cocktails are on the small size therefore may be better getting a glass of wine. Overall, good dining experience.

    One of my solid stand-by restaurants in the city. The fried chicken is a classic, but the duck club should not be overlooked. It’s a hidden gem on the menu and so light, but substantial. These bartenders sure do know how to make a stellar drink.

    Daniel and all the staff took care of us, and we weren't easy to take care of --four separate reservations, party of 19 that turned into 15 (or was it 13), seating changes... We were quite a mess, but Daniel and everyone were unfazed and they made it seamless. And, oh, the food was top.
