The City Council should give some serious thought to renaming the South Village intersection of Downing and Bedford Streets Bromberg Square, since brothers Bruce and Eric have three establishments clustered there. The third, Blue Ribbon Bar, bears the telltale Brombergian mark of obsessive carpentry, with white-oak shelving and paneling, plus a marble bar and French-limestone floor, and makes a sleek holding pen for diners waiting for tables at Blue Ribbon Bakery across the street. While they wait, customers can sip a broad selection of wines, beers, and liquors, and nibble on Blue Ribbon–baked bread, cheeses, some new additions to the menu of toasts on offer around the corner at Blue Ribbon Market, and a few baked dishes like snails and short ribs.
