Blue Ribbon brings New York City flavor to The Cosmopolitan
Chefs and restaurateurs Bruce and Eric Bromberg bring their vision of true American cuisine to Blue Ribbon restaurant at The Cosmopolitan, with a menu that is a melting pot of worldly influence and the chefs' culinary education and escapades. Blue Ribbon is built on a vision that originated 25 years ago with two brothers and one small restaurant in New York, which grew into a beloved city staple "where chefs go to eat." The duo is famously known for introducing signature items such as oysters on the half shell, beef marrow and fried chicken to the forefront of the national culinary scene back in 1992. Now, at The Cosmopolitan, Blue Ribbon builds on that original vision and draws inspiration from the bustling energy of the Las Vegas Strip.
Blue Ribbon’s dinner menu is heavily inspired by the original SoHo location, with long time favorites including Beef Marrow & Oxtail Marmalade; Cheese Fondue; and “Blue Ribbon Style” Fried Chicken & Seafood Paella Basquez. New creations exclusive to the Las Vegas location include Bourbon-Glazed Duroc Pork Chop, Baked Oyster with Spinach & Garlic Parmesan Aioli and most notably, an array of offerings from the raw bar including shellfish, oysters, clams, shrimp and lobster. As the nation’s go-to spot for serious gastronomes, Blue Ribbon at The Cosmopolitan offers dinner service as well as the late-night dining experience that they have become so well known for.
- Fried Chicken | mashed potatoes, gravy, collard greens
- Beef Marrow & Oxtail Marmalade | parsley salt, challah
Chef Bio: Bruce & Eric Bromberg
“With Blue Ribbon 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 more than a dozen restaurants and bars.
