My wife and I are very keen sushi lovers and of course if you are in the neighbors there is not anything better that BRS. It is in the high grade league of sushi restaurants like Sushi of Gari and Koi and alike so is the price. First we had an amazing sake which is specially brewed for the restaurant... More

The venue is a street level store front without a sign. Looks closed when walking by. Food is fresh and very tasty. Staff is pleasant. But hold onto you wallet. It is a pricey place. I had a piece of squid sashimi (1 piece), 2 tuna, 2 Dani (mackerel), 1 uni, 1 octopus & a very small salmon skin hand... More

Te most delicious sushi, I ever tested. The waiter was excellent so hilarious and we have a great diner. It's difficult to find, because it doesn't have a signal or number and is in the -0.5 floor

The restaurant is a little hard to find but it's worth the search. It's on a nice tree lined street in Soho in the lower level of a building. Really great sushi and very friendly service. Terrific wine selection as well. I went on a week night and it wasn't terribly crowded. Really nice find if you are staying in... More

I've visited Blue Ribbon more than five times during the last two years, It's always an exiting pleasure, food is always frash and tasty, sirvice pleasant and fast, The only problem is that they don't eccept reservations and you have to wait on line some times for over half an hour, but it's worthy, prices are high but reasonable.

This is not "the best sushi in town", nor is it unassuming, just not posh and is hard to see at first look. Do not come here if you are looking for a bargain, for a bargain it is not. However, if you are in the neighborhood, and you feel like sushi - this is the place to go. Chef's... More

Great recommendation from our concierge. We had no reservations and had a bit of a wait, after all it was Saturday night. One of our party couldn't wait for our table and the host pleasantly took her to go order. Great evening, ambience, waitstaff, and food!

It took us a couple of times to find it....initially thought we did, however, we ended at their French restaurant which almost has the same name....a few blocks away, so we ate there. Anyhow a couple of days later we did end up at Blue Ribbon Sushi, the place is always full, good vibe, great location. The dishes we had... More

Only had sushi and edamame. Fish not fresh. Uni had no flavour. Rice overcooked and seaweed soggy. Even edamame over cooked. Maybe we went on their off night as others seem to like. We would not go back even for a free make good meal. Sake was best part of the meal.

Staying in SoHo

Neighborhood Profile
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.
