Awarded two-stars by renowned food critic Ruth Reichl in her last New York Times review, 2 ½ stars in Crain's Business and amongst the Zagat Survey's Top 50 Most Popular New York restaurants of 2004, Ruby Foo’s has earned its reputation as an Upper West Side top spot. Beware fun-phobes, because Ruby Foo’s is ready to rumble. This 10,000 square-foot, tri-level, 400-seat David Rockwell designed den boasts a two-story high sushi bar, a wall composed of hundreds of vibrant mah jongg tiles, and a sweeping theatrical staircase that would make Norma Desmond proud. Make a grand ascent from the busy bar as you gracefully glide up past the 30-foot high, red lacquer wall that hungry diners have been known to think is a giant bento box – it’s then and there that you remember just why you’re here. Bring your friends and an insatiable appetite, because Executive Chef Scott Drewno's tempting menu is made for sharing. Whether you’re dining for lunch, dinner or just because, Ruby’s offers some of the city's freshest sushi. The Crunchy Florida Roll delivers bite-size bursts of snow crab, sweet shrimp and avocado. Tickle your taste buds with exquisite maki, like Tempura Shrimp, Snow Crab, Avocado, the Mango Maki Roll, or tickle your taste buds with the Tamarind Glazed Baby Back Ribs. Try the 7-Flavor Beef with Ginger Mashed Potatoes and Chile-Lime Salsa or the popular Pad Thai – and those are just a few of the must-haves. Dessert junkies will delight in the Ruby Foo's Chocolate Layer Cake with Vanilla Ice Cream—one bite will send you into sugary bliss. And for the choicest sweet tooth, there is the Bento Box Sampler assembled from the pastry chef’s picks or the Ruby Foo’s Green Tea Sandwich Sundae, a mix of Vanilla and Green Tea Ice Creams layered with Peanut Nougatine between two Dark Chocolate Wafers. How’s that for a fortune? The drink list alone is also worth the visit – pick a few items off of the menu to casually sip while you mingle with friends. Try the Ruby Foo, what New York Magazine called "an exciting alternative to the ubiquitous Cosmopolitan," or choose from the award-winning, yet reasonably-priced, wine list and other knock-your-socks-off libations.
