Any must haves at Blue Ribbon Brooklyn?

Going to Blue Ribbon tonight for dinner and will definitely order the bone marrow appetizer. Are there any other must haves on the menu?

  1. The fried chicken is terrific, although it is pricey.

        True enough, but I think the fried chicken is pricier than most given what it is.

    1. I really like the shrimp with chorizo appetizer and the calamari with chorizo appetizer

      1. The chicken is pretty darn great. The ribs appetizer is also. Everyone loves the marrow. You can't really go wrong there in my opinion.

        1. I second the shrimp with chorizo appetizer. I enjoyed the steamed clams as well and I love their french onion soup.

            i second the steamed clams. with copious amounts of bread for soaking up the broth! i always order them, the smoked trout salad, some rawbar stuff, a martini, and i'm set.

            my fowl-eating dining companions rave about the fried chicken, no matter the price. the chocolate chip bread pudding for desssert is ridiculous. you could skip the whole meal and just order an app with it and you'd be smiling.

          2. Thanks for all the replies. We went last night and had a fabulous time. The food is amazing. We ordered the bone marrow appetizer (OMG!), fried chicken, and the shrimp and chorizo. My son has the children's menu steak. I really appreciated their kids menu as it had some sophisticated choices rather than the usual grilled cheese, hot dog etc. All the food was incredible. Already thinking of the next time...will get the bone marrow, of course, and definitely some oysters. They looked amazing. The smoked trout salad and clams sound great too.

              The fried chicken is my absolute favorite dish there with the bone marrow a close second....sure it is pricey but one bite and I always forget that!
