Blue Ribbon Empire Expansion

The former Sambuca restaurant at 20 West 72nd Street currently has a Tony’s Di Napoli’s sign outside the window apologizing for the ‘inconvenience during transformation.” Actually, it is not the Tony’s Di Napoli family style restaurant that will be occupying the space, it will belong to the Blue Ribbon Bromberg brothers, Eric and Bruce, with partner Ken Sturm (Iridium, Campeon). The crew inside are transforming the space into a new American restaurant called, The Ribbon.

The restaurant is due to open in late February 2015, and will be able to seat up to 200 guests. The interior design will have an ‘elegant industrial’ theme including a bar top converted from a Brooklyn factory floor. The menu, which will be quite broad, will include amongst other things a raw bar and rotisserie. Private dining will also be available with a room that can seat up to 12 guests. It has been over a year since the last addition to the Blue Ribbon Empire, and this one will certainly have a big impact in the neighborhood.
