2. Meanwhile, further east at the Thompson LES we've learned that a Blue Ribbon Sushi Izakaya restaurant opened back in April. Thompson already has a Blue Ribbon restaurant at their 6 Columbus property and the original Blue Ribbon is close by to 60 Thompson but now it's the LES's turn. Blue Ribbon is serving dishes like pork ribs, fried rice and their famous fried chicken alongside classic sushi dishes with fish flown in daily from Japan. Best of all the restaurant is open nightly from 5pm until 2am. There's nothing like late night Blue Ribbon sushi if you ask us.
3. Lastly, The Yard at the Soho Grand, the hotel's outdoor dining venue has been around for three years but today, The Yard has just begun lunch service, featuring yummy apps like chips and guac and artichoke dip alongside heartier entrees such as seafood tiers, burgers and BBQ. The place is open for guests and locals alike, no tickets needed. You may also want to pop in during the Euro Cup soccer games as they've been airing them on a wall in the courtyard. Goooaaaal!
