About
Located in the 6 Columbus Hotel at Columbus Circle, Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill is a great spot for a business lunch, an after work sake flight, a quick pre-theater meal, or a decadent night out on the town. The menu pairs authentic Japanese cuisine with Blue Ribbon signature dishes and a distinctive beverage program featuring sake and shochu cocktails. If ever there was a restaurant with something for everyone, the Bromberg Brothers and partner Toshi Ueki have ensured Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill is it.

I really enjoyed my meal here. Grilled Hamachi melted in my mouth and the shiitake arugula salad with tamari butter was delectable. I will absolutely return. There are so many great menu choices - will take a few times to eat them all.
