Did You Know? BLUE RIBBON Has A “B” GRADE!
In the late 90’s and early 2000’s, Soho restaurant BLUE RIBBON was THE spot for hip sushi dining. Fresh fish, trendy items, hip staff, and pretty patrons made Blue Ribbon the ideal spot for celebrities, models and fashionistas to mingle, drink and hang out on Sullivan Street in between shopping, bar-hopping, and scoring.
Located at 119 Sullivan Street, I strolled by the other day and snapped this quick shot of their entrance where a “B” inspection grade boldly graces their windows. I was shocked but not surprised.
Blue Ribbon has lost much of it’s turn-of-the-century steam. Perhaps its the overcrowded touristy neighborhood, the competition abound, or unsanitary appeal.
In any event, Blue Ribbon is still high on many critic’s lists. But as a rule, I don’t do “B” restaurants, and Blue Ribbon is no exception.
