35 Downing St., New York, NY (@ Bedford St.)
One of the many Bromberg Bros. restaurants, Blue Ribbon Bakery began on a picturesque West Village corner nearly 15 years ago. Despite its many accolades including winner of the “Best Brunch in NYC,” the restaurant is known for more that just sit down service. With its famous Old World oven at the heart of the operation, the kitchen also takes orders for bread from area restaurants as well as serving as the anchor of the renowned restaurant. The franchise has a smaller outpost steps away on Bedford Street that serves as a separate baking outlet with offerings such as raw Mexican honey, cured meats and cheeses, seasonings, juices, and, of course, a full selection of Blue Ribbon bread. Offering a colorful menu (illustrations and food alike) the restaurant is perfect place to start a night on the town, or to wind down after a long week.
