blue ribbon sushi izakaya

smoked pork belly with pickled onions

shisito peppers with maldon sea salt

fried chicken with wasabi honey

squid ink and uni risotto

a welcome addition to the neighborhood's restaurant scene, blue ribbon sushi izakaya at the thompson lower east side is a great casual option amongst a sea of reservation only or one + hour wait tables nearby.

anywhere that I can get my sticky fingers on some lightly-battered fried chicken and can simultaneously dig into heaps of uni over squid ink risotto is A-ok in my book.
