Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar

OPENED11 DAYS AGO

Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar has opened for the second time on the concourse level of 30 Rockefeller Plaza.  Bruce & Eric Bromber, the chefs & owners of all of the Blue Ribbon Restaurants around the country, opened the first Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar in 2014, at Brookfield Place’s upscale food court, Hudson Eats.  This time, the duo partnered with sushi master Toshi Ueki.  This location is one of the more casual Blue Ribbon options.

The Spot:

Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar is located in one of the most popular buildings in one of the most populated areas of New York City: Rockefeller Plaza.  The restaurant is more casual than other Blue Ribbon options – it’s perfect for those who want to indulge in traditional omakase in a more relaxed setting, as well as for those on the go who still want their quick lunch to be of quality.  It has an 11-seat sushi bar, a small dining area, a customizable bowl assembly section, and an area where guests can choose from grab-and-go options.

The Food: 

This Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar will offer traditional breakfast options, like a Japanese Breakfast Bento, with homemade tofu, ginger sauce, hijiki edamame salad, a salmon and umeboshi rice ball, pickles, eggplant, and string beans, as well as more American options to go, like coconutty Quinoa Pudding Fruit Cup, or Matcha Chia Seed Pudding with granola.  Takeout also includes customizable Bento bowls, or pre-made Bento boxed lunches, salads, spicy miso ramen, soups, or even house-made tofu.

Sushi and sashimi can be ordered as hand rolls or as a platter from the sushi bar.  (There are even vegetarian options and specialty rolls!)  For those who want to take part in a more traditional dining experience, for $70, guests can choose the omakase menu.  There are also a variety of hot and cold appetizers.

In addition, guests can also purchase traditional Japanese snacks and goods from a retail counter, including homemade Wasabi Honey, Tamari Soy Sauce, flavored sea salts, sake, plum wine, instant noodle bowls, and snacks like Pocky, nori popcorn, matcha candies, and matcha caramels.

The Damage:

Each roll and platter vary in prices.  Dishes like Atlantic Salmon and Pan Roasted Mahi Mahi run at $29, a NY Strip is $39, and Grilled ½ Chicken is $27.

In a nutshell:

Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar perfectly fuses together the growing trend of fast-casual eateries with traditional dine-in restaurants.  Without sacrificing quality and flavor, this new spot allows those on the go to indulge in authentic Japanese, and those with some time to spare to experience an omakase menu, all in one of the most central hubs of New York City.
