Spicy Tuna Roll

Pristine quality fish and attention to every detail defines the Blue Ribbon Experience

Blue Ribbon Sushi Izakaya is at once a Japanese-style tavern, a traditional Sushi Bar and a fine dining experience, all about melding a fun drinking environment with delicious food offerings. The low rise communal tables and big booths make this an ideal destination with a huge crew of friends, and there are booths and more intimate spaces allowing a more private experience. The menu provides something for everyone – vegetarians, sushi lovers and meat lovers alike.

We are located at 187 Orchard Street (& one floor up in the SIXTY LES Hotel at 190 Allen Street) where the Lower East Side meets The East Village. We serve everything from small plate items like yakitori by the piece, to family-style platters like filet mignon with lobster platter. Not to be outdone, expert Sushi Chefs man the Sushi Bar and create made-to-order fresh sashimi, sushi and signature rolls. All this to accompany hand crafted Japanese beers, sochu style cocktails and an extensive sake and wine list.

We also host outdoor dining and drinking at Kanpai Garden, just off our bar area.

At Blue Ribbon Sushi, sushi master Toshi Ueki selects only the highest quality fish flown in daily and turns them into edible works of art. The soy sauce is aged in oak casks for 24 months, the wasabi is real fresh-grated wasabi root, the ginger is pickled in-house, and the rice is flawless. Whether you opt for hand rolls, cut rolls, nigiri, sashimi, or their legendary Spicy Tuna Crispy Rice (or all of the above!), this is bound to be some of the best sushi you've ever had.
