Sushi Acrobatics at Blue Ribbon, Park Slope

Photo by myself at Blue Ribbon Sushi, in Park Slope, Brooklyn.

Mark and I dined at Blue Ribbon Sushi in Brooklyn, at the sushi bar. One of the more glamorous dishes that night involved a fish skeleton that was held in place with a wooden skewer.

The Blue Ribbon restaurants are a high end family of various cuisines. There are sushi restaurants in Soho and Park Slope. There is a bakery in downtown Manhattan. There are western-style seafood restaurants in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Las Vegas.

The person next to us turned out to have ordered the same dish, and conveniently, he was in the men's room when the dish arrived. Hence the photo op:

Our neighbor at the sushi bar told us that some of the sushi on his plate included baby eel.

Mark and I had a much humbler-looking dishes that were fresh and absolutely delicious. Brooklyn Blue Ribbon is ranked among the best sushi restaurants in Brooklyn.

Kitty, must say I'm sooo glad your fellow diner had to go to the restroom, otherwise you may not have got the opportunity to get those "delicious" shots!! Wonderful detail. Rose

so is their sushi as good as everyone says? Worth the extra $$$$$?

Kitty said...

Thanks everyone!

Hi Ken,
hm..that is a tough question. They are expensive but I've seen more expensive and esoteric places. Their dishes aren't as experimental as some places but what we had (sushi and sashimi platters, and sake) were very good.

So I would say..this is a special night out place for most people, a splurge, but worth it.

I have a hankering for sushi - with lots of wasabi!
