Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, work and food. Hope you have a nice stay and will return soon!

 

Bubby's, NYC

Bubby's, NYC

Came for lunch... stayed for pie

My Tourne of Tribeca restaurants continues. Today on the lunch agenda was Bubby's. 

Really great things: their pies are heaven on earth (and they have a baking book - great Christmas gift idea for your banking friends or... yourself -> I am a big fan of gifts "from myself to myself" - all about that self love guys ;) [making a parenthesis in a parenthesis - yes it's happening - I re-read the last sentence and for some reason it seems to me like I sound super gangster like with the selflove stuff - just wanted to pint that out ;D]).

What is also amazing is ther healthy, green, kale juice! I highly recommend.

 

What was less amazing however was their food... 

I have ordered a matzo ball soup and a frisée salad with extra steak. 

After a long wait, both the soup and the salad arrived at the same time, and already lukewarm. As a result by the time I finished my soup, the meat and egg from my salad were completely cold.  

However what tipped the experience was the quality of the stake. For $11, I got 6 very thin pieces of... the fatties stake I have ever received in a restaurant. To have you the picture: I literally had to cut the fat from the pieces (eating cold, animal fat is not my kind of a meal)... an by the time I did that, there was barely any meat left.

I have also asked for the steak to be done medium but it arrived very well done. (But that's the smallest issue of the lunch). 

 

To sum up: would recommend for dessert, but as for the actual meal, it was below average. That being said: it is of course my one experience in the restaurant, so let me know if you think I just had bad luck and you actually like the place, but as for me, I will not be likely to return.
