Vinoy serving classics from New York's Blue Ribbon restaurants

ST. PETERSBURG — Marchand's, the flagship restaurant in the Renaissance Vinoy Resort, has introduced a new bar menu featuring food from New York's Blue Ribbon restaurants.

Eric and Bruce Bromberg, who opened the original Blue Ribbon in Soho in 1992, developed a menu for several Renaissance properties. While the New York restaurants — there are nine around the city now plus one in Las Vegas — got famous for serving bone marrow with oxtail marmalade to celebrity chefs who hang out there until all hours, the menu here will be a little more mainstream.

The "Blue Ribbon Classics" menu includes fried rock shrimp, BBQ pork sliders on brioche that will be made in-house and chicken wings dressed with Mexican honey.

The Brombergs were nominated for a James Beard award this year for Outstanding Restaurateur.

• Bistro Bleu, the reinvented NoHo Bistro, recently reopened in its new home in South Tampa (2402 S MacDill Ave.; (813) 514-0691; bistrobleutampa.com). Chef Tina Hurless will have the same sort of New American menu that made NoHo an acclaimed neighborhood spot in West Tampa for seven years before it closed this spring.
