Oishi Oysters: Dinner at Blue Ribbon Sushi

Hello Oyster Lovers,

If you love oysters, you're probably also partial other things seafood and raw. And where do you find unmatched reverence for the power of fresh, unadorned seafood? Japan! I'm excited to announce that the next Oyster Lovers Meetup will take place at Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill (308 W. 58th St at Columbus Circle) on Monday, Nov. 12th at 6:30 pm. The Blue Ribbon restaurants have long garnered accolades for their bold culinary eclecticism, where you can get top notch sushi and mouthwatering fried chicken in the same place. As Frank Bruni wrote in the NY Times, "You don’t order the pan-roasted mahi-mahi at a restaurant that prides itself on steaks...But rules are made to be broken, and against all odds, every one of those things is terrific."

The restaurant has created the following menu for us and it will be served family-style, a great way to try everything and meet your neighbors too!

Wakame: seaweed with sesame dressing

Barron Point oyster sunomono: raw oyster with ponzu sauce

Kaki Fri Maki: fried oyster roll

Yaki Hama: baked clams with miso butter

Dynamite: grilled scallops, wild mushrooms, smelt roe

Oyster sushi (chef's choice)

Yaki tuna sashimi: seared tuna with yuzu mayo

Pan Roasted Mahi Mahi: squash, carrot and ume plum butter sauce

Fried Chicken "Blue Ribbon Style" with wasabi honey

Unfried Rice: brown rice, poached egg, vegetables, scallions

The price for this dinner is $50 plus tax and tip. If you order any drinks or other menu items a la carte, please settle those with the server on your own. Our table is capped at 16, so if you're interested in joining the fun, sign up soon before we're out of space! Note: refunds will not be issued for this event, so please be confident that you can make it.

See you there!

      I think there was an erroneous setting that closed signups, but it's fixed now. So, if you'd like the last spot for this Meetup, please sign up for it now!

      Hey Bigi, the dinner's actually capped at 16, I checked the settings again and I don't know why it's saying there's no space left when only 14 people have RSVPed. If you want, I'll add you to the list?

      That would be great! Thank you. Bigi

    Can't wait can't wait can't wait. I may have to order their oxtail fried rice on the side... to go. My favorite thing that they have there of all time. Ok also the caramel french toast dessert is also really really good.
