The freshest fish with a lively crowd and efficient service makes Blue Ribbon one of the city's most reliable haunts. Seats up front—especially at the sushi bar—are best for those who enjoy watching the swift, masterful movements of the sushi chefs. "Fresh, fresh, fresh fish and a wicked sake assortment ensure that this hip SoHo sushi specialist is still jamming after all these years," says the Zagat Survey. The ultrafresh sushi is prepared by chefs noted for their willingness to break from tradition to create spectacular sushi combinations. The combination sushi plates are wonderful, and from the salmon to the cod, the fish is fresh and proportional.
