Weird Name, Great Food
As New Yorkers, we’re constantly in search of a fantastic meal with lush digs to boot. With so many options available to us across the five boroughs, and menus covering any number of cuisines, cultures and trends, it can become a bit overwhelming at times. Instead, it’s sometimes worth revisiting the basics with a simple, simply great meal. Bubby’s—with locations in TriBeCa and DUMBO—delivers on this concept.
Bubby’s serves traditional comfort food that could otherwise qualify as staples in most American kitchens. The barbecue is especially good, with the hot links and the pork butt as a definite highlight. If the grill isn’t your pleasure, a meatloaf, served wrapped in bacon, is definitely worth sinking your teeth into. The blend of ground beef and ground pork make the dish especially tender and juicy.
Still, the real draw for anyone considering a visit is the incredible pie selection. Baked by Ron Silver and ranging from the popular “mile high apple pie” to the Michigan sour cherry, the pies at Bubby’s are seriously good. In fact, you’re doing yourself a disservice if you choose to skip dessert. The extra calories are worth it. Trust me.
My Recommendations: Anything BBQ, meatloaf, sour cherry pie.
