Just in time for the warmer weather, Blue Ribbon Sushi Izakaya on the Lower East Side has reopened its spacious 2nd floor patio. The patio is open daily, starting at noon. The izakaya is located inside the SIXTY LES Hotel (187 Orchard Street) featuring a cocktail bar, main dining room with communal tables and large booths, as well as a sushi counter.

Diners will find a wide range of traditional Japanese cuisine, from sushi, sashimi, and maki, to elevated Japanese small plates like Filet Mignon Teppan Yaki and Tiger Shrimp Tempura, and of course, its famous Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken. The atmosphere is relaxed and fun with Lower East Side vibes.
