Bubby’s was probably the first restaurant recommendation given to us when we moved to Tribeca. It is a neighborhood staple and crowds line up in any weather to grub its hearty brunches. It is also a great late night spot; one of the few spots in the neighborhood that is open 24 hours. I’ve been to Bubby’s for breakfast, brunch, and late night and have always left totally satiated by the American comfort food. Famous for its homey food, Bubby’s also serves up one hell of a bloody Mary (of which Jen is an avid fan) and bakes up some delicious pies (of which Jen is also an avid fan).

Once you enter the restaurant, you are greeted by the sight of the bar and baked goods, so it is really a win/win no matter who you are or how old. Despite the typically long wait times, the bar is friendly and is an ideal spot to sip on a spiked apple cider in the winter or a mimosa in the summer. The interior is very spacious and lit up by the floor-to-ceiling windows. It is also very family friendly as outside there is even parking for strollers! Everything is very simply prepared here as the focus is on good food and good times. Its motto is: “Defending the American Table” which is all about being locally-sourced, and honoring grandma’s recipes.  Bubby’s makes its own soda pop in house, smokes its own salmon, grinds its own burgers, renders its own lard, makes its own ice cream, and the restaurant also really likes pickling stuff. The result is freshly prepared wholehearted goodness!

Bubby’s Spicy Bloody Mary
Yowza, spicy indeed. Jen downed these.

Flakey, fluffly, and scrumptuous with some of the home-made jams Bubby’s has!

Chanterelle and shallot scramble

Pork belly hash
Yes, it was as good as it sounds

Forgot what was in it but obviously the ingredients change seasonally.  They are classic and good.

PIES (100% Homemade)

Banana Creme Pie
Jen’s favorite kind of pie in the world… the pudding and cream was amazing!  I think there were also walnut pralines or some kind of dulce de leche sweetness…
