Opening summer 2017
Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill closed on Jan. 15 in order to make way for a new Blue Ribbon Restaurant in the same space, inspired by the original Blue Ribbon Brasserie in New York City. Bringing a fresh dining style to the Las Vegas market, the revamped Blue Ribbon Restaurant will serve eclectic New American fare, including the brothers' groundbreaking raw bar. The revamped space will debut summer 2017.
Blue Ribbon’s menu will draw heavily from the original SoHo eatery, brimming with signature comfort dishes such as bone marrow with oxtail marmalade, fried oysters, steak tartare, and the Brombergs' famous fried chicken. As the nation’s go-to spot for serious gastronomes, Blue Ribbon at The Cosmopolitan will offer brunch, lunch and dinner service, and will stay open late to cater to those who want to party the night away in a relaxed atmosphere.
Brother chefs and restaurateurs Bruce and Eric Bromberg have set trends and ignited passions for almost 20 years with their famed Blue Ribbon Restaurants. Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas is the Brombergs' first Blue Ribbon restaurant outside of New York City.
“With Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, we offer the city a true taste of the Blue Ribbon restaurant experience and our family’s culinary sensibility,“ says Bruce Bromberg. Eric adds, “Much like New York, Las Vegas is up late, always on, and filled with people who understand and appreciate good food.”
In their early twenties, Bruce and Eric Bromberg attended Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, graduating with the highest honors. After apprenticeships in New York and Paris, the brothers created the first Blue Ribbon restaurant in Manhattan’s SoHo neighborhood, and it was an immediate success. Blue Ribbon, the English translation of Cordon Bleu, signifies first prize and top quality, and references Bruce and Eric Bromberg’s culinary experience in France. The original Blue Ribbon restaurant ushered in a new era in dining, one with no reservations and an eclectic mix of familiar and fine foods.
In the years that followed, the duo assembled a small empire, and the Blue Ribbon world now encompasses nine restaurants.
From 1992 to 2010, Blue Ribbon Restaurants have been recognized with a slew of “Top 10” and “Best Of” awards from publications including Wine Spectator, Zagat, Time Out New York, The New York Press, New York magazine, and The New York Observer.
