New York's Famous Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken Is Coming To The Grove
Long a popular and renown spot ever since brothers Eric and Bruce Bromberg opened their first location in SoHo in 1992, Blue Ribbon will finally be opening their first West Coast location at The Grove this spring."The Grove is a dream destination. Angelenos have been twisting our arms for years to open a Blue Ribbon in LA—it will soon be a reality," said Bruce Bromberg.
The original Blue Ribbon is a French brasserie-style restaurant, but they have expanded their empire to include several sushi restaurants throughout New York and Las Vegas. The forthcoming Grove location will take the space vacated by Fat Cow, and will be part of their sushi restaurant roster, featuring a menu put together with chef Toshi Ueki. The lineup will have the usual sushi restaurant offerings alongside Japanese twists on grill fare, including Wagyu ribeye with enoki ponzu and Maine lobster steamed with miso butter.
But what we're looking forward to most is the famed Blue Ribbon-style fried chicken—supposedly so good it has its own dedicated restaurant. At the forthcoming Sushi Bar & Grill, it'll be "accented" with wasabi honey.
