The countdown is on for your last meal at Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. Brothers Eric and Bruce Bromberg plan to close the restaurant on the third floor after service on Sunday, Jan. 15, to make way for a renovated restaurant that will open a new Blue Ribbon eatery fashioned after New York’s Blue Ribbon Brasserie this spring.
“We’ve seen great success with Blue Ribbon Sushi since the opening of the resort in 2010,” co-owner Bruce Bromberg says in a press statement. “We’re excited to continue our tenure at the Cosmopolitan by mixing things up and introducing our classic American restaurant concept to Las Vegas locals and guests at the Cosmopolitan. We hope to move quickly through the construction and training process so we can re-open our doors in spring 2017.”
The new Blue Ribbon menu plans to feature a raw bar, pu pu platters, bone marrow with oxtail marmalade, fried oysters, steak tartare and, of course, fried chicken. The restaurant plans to be open for brunch, lunch and dinner service and will stay open late.
Asfour/Guzy is working on the decor, which plans to feature chandeliers, tinted cement and glazed antique tile.
Zuma, the sushi restaurant out of London, is getting set to debut across the hall from Blue Ribbon sometime this month.
