Famed NYC sushi restaurant opens 2nd location off Las Vegas Strip

Updated March 22, 2024 - 8:07 pm

Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill, from chefs Eric and Bruce Bromberg of Blue Ribbon Restaurants in New York City, will debut March 29 at Green Valley Ranch. Blue Ribbon Sushi began almost 30 years ago in the Soho neighborhood of Manhattan.

The new Blue Ribbon Sushi features 124 seats, including a 13-seat sushi counter. The menu encompasses sushi and sashimi, nightly sushi bar specials, hot Japanese dishes, signature fried chicken with wasabi honey, and grilled items such as baked miso half-lobster, wagyu skirt steak with miso pepper sauce and a center-cut ponzu ribeye with steak frites.

The beverage program offers specialty cocktails, Japanese beer and whiskies, and a roster of sakes, including Blue Ribbon’s proprietary junmai, junmai ginjo, junmai daiginjo and nigori.

The first Blue Ribbon Sushi in the Las Vegas Valley opened in 2017 at Red Rock Resort, also a Station Casinos property.

The new Blue Ribbon Sushi is part of the ongoing renewal and expansion of the Station portfolio, including the opening of Leoncito Mexican restaurant at Red Rock in November, the launch of Durango resort in the southwest in December, and the planned spring debut of Ortikia, a Mediterranean wood-fire grill, at Green Valley Ranch.

Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill will be open for dinner from 3:30 to 10 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays and 3:30 to 11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. Beginning April 5, Blue Ribbon will be open for lunch from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Fridays through Sundays. Visit greenvalleyranch.com.
