A New York City classic that became a favorite of chefs late at night comes to the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. Restaurateurs Bruce and Eric Bromberg swapped out their sushi bar and grill and converted the space into simply Blue Ribbon, offering the fare the made the brothers famous while adding only-in-Vegas touches.
Oysters on the half shell, beef marrow and fried chicken all make the menu here, as do Vegas-only dishes such as bourbon-glazed prime rib of pork and the Plateau Cosmopolitan, a multi-tiered shellfish and caviar dish with oysters, clams, shrimp, lobster and crab, served with either a bottle of Champagne or chilled vodka.
The Brombergs turned to Asfour/Guzy to design the space with chandeliers lighting an exposed ceiling, tinted cement and glazed antique tile. A piece of New York comes to Las Vegas with design elements from original New York restaurant, including the lighting, a classic mahogany bar and table tops, and banquette fabrics. The private dining room even has its own private entrance.
Take a look around.
