The cozy cedar clad restaurant has an extensive selection of fresh fish flown in daily from the Sea of Japan as well as both the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. We feature many combinations of fresh ingredients and delicacies and an award-winning sake list.

Best sushi in town

Had one of the best sushi meals so far. Prices are reasonable. Probably not so easy to find because no sign on the outside, but doesn't really matter. No reservations accepted, first come first serve. Service was good!!!

Came here and we got some suggestions from our waitress (who was awesome.) We basically built a boat and told them to keep sending us those boats until we said "stop" --- this is how you order sushi :D Seriously great food! Can't say enough good things about the quality of the food, drinks and atmosphere.

Its okay but it used to be great. I remember when it first opened I was a customer. The guy shucking oysters in the window was a really nice touch years ago and the sushi place to get in was really cool but now it lost its shine. It's not as good as it used to be. And the name... More

We selected this restaurant based on great reviews on TA. It is a cozy place with great service. We order various sushi dishes and rock shrimp tempura. While everything I ordered was tasty, I don't think it was any better than other Japanese places in the city. Rock shrimp tempura from Morimoto is definitely better - more flavor and crispy....

It is great because you can sit in front of the cooks, talk and watch them while you cook the fish. While you wait, they make you sit in a room availing sake. The cuisine is varied and of high quality.It is quite expensive, but well worth the effort. Makes me want to go back always, by the way are... More

We waited for 30 minutes for a table for two in this tiny but cool place and boy, was it worth it! The sushi was literally melt in your mouth delicious and I would recommend this Soho spot to anyone that loves sushi.

We found this place through TA and we don't have any regrets trying it out. The atmosphere is really nice, the waiting time was not so much (especially when accompanied by warm sake :P ) and the sushi was very good. We tried the miso (soup), sashimi, nigiri, clasic roll (salmon, avocado, cucumber) all salmon and it was all great.... More

We went to the Blue Ribbon Sushi to have lunch on our last day in NYC. And it was a perfect conclusion to a great Weekend in this gorgeous city. The Restaurant is very cute, homelike and it remebers to original places in Asia. The Service is very friendly and attentive. The Sushi is freshly made behind the visible bar... More

Staying in SoHo

Neighborhood Profile
SoHo
Once the artistic hub of New York, SoHo is now one of the premiere shopping destinations in the world. Housing everything from the most popular luxury brands to swank boutiques you won’t find anywhere else, this is a sophisticated shopper’s dream come true. Broadway is teeming with big-name stores and people during the day, while Prince and Spring Streets are the other main drags to explore. Take a detour down the quieter side streets to see the real star of the district – the world’s largest collection of intricate and elegant cast-iron architecture. What were once warehouses and art studios are now meticulously restored loft buildings favored by many of New York’s celebrities, making SoHo one of the trendiest addresses in the city.
