Now that there's a Brooklyn one, I'm curious to see how they rate. I went to Blue Ribbon sometime awhile ago and from my experience, it was worth the price. As long as you make sure to go at a decent time, avoiding the dinner peak hours, you're experience should be pleasant. I happen to drop by on a crowdy night but squeezed in with just the 2 of us. Bigger crowds might not want to do Blue Ribbon especially on a weekend. Very tight quarters there. I ate the sushi and rolls and must say that everything is certainly fresh there. If you eat at the sushi bar, your elbow room is pretty limited so keep that in mind.
