Blue Ribbon Las Vegas Re-Grand Opening Party

Last week was one for the record books as we had the opportunity to attend the “re-grand opening” of Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill inside the Cosmopolitan Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. After a freak accident in the hotel flooded the restaurant causing a nearly month closure, the team was back with a brand new restaurant and the same grinning faces and gracious hospitality. The evening started out in the lounge where bartenders Jeff and Chris had a bottle of Black Dragon sake on ice. If you haven't had a chance to enjoy this libation, it is a must try and be careful, it's a bit sneaky. After catching up with proprietor Bruce Bromberg, GM Bowie Fu, Chef Dave Kornell and Co. and presenting them with a little gag gift (child size floaties in a lucite box with a message “break only in case of emergency or flooding) and sharing a lighthearted laugh it was time to get the real festivities started.

In what can only be described as one of the most extravagant spreads at a restaurant opening, the team made sure the sushi bar was stocked with copious amounts of freshly prepared sushi and scrumptious chicken wings. We’re talking tuna, salmon, tako, yellowtail, mackerel and more fresh fish along with perfect spoonful bites of the mouthwatering Oxtail Fried Rice. Add in the sake and shochu bar setup, great soundtrack provided by DJ Peter Shalvoy and it was a fantastic night to catch up with many of the Blue Ribbon Las Vegas faithful and once again see the staff do what they do best, make everyone leave full and happy.

Can’t wait to get back for more Black Dragon and some of the freshest, best fish around.
