The Vegetarian Option: Blue Ribbon Sushi

New York Laura Togut 6 comments

There's no denying it: sushi is all about the fish. But vegetarians who love their sushi do have one distinct advantage—it's much cheaper.

Blue Ribbon's Excellent Matzo Ball Soup

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 13 comments

Is Blue Ribbon's matzo ball soup better than either of my grandmother's? I'd rather not say. What I will say is that it lived up to the title of "excellent"—the stock was beautifully flavored, and the matzo balls were the ideal weight and density and tasted of chicken fat in the best possibly way.

New York Ed Levine 9 comments

Blue Ribbon Bakery Market is the only toast bar that I know of.

It turns out that a toast bar is a brilliant idea, one worthy of a MacArthur Genius Grant. More
