So we finally made it to Bubby's, after repeated suggestions from one of the blog's readers (thanks Ttrockwood!). Not ghat this place was not on my list, Jodi mentioning it several times and raving about their brunch and biscuits that I tried one time, when she brought back one from a brunch with her cousin Rebecca. Instead of going to the one in TriBeCa, we decided to go to the location close to the High Line.
It was a Monday and the place was packed. What I noticed and found interesting there is that the food was served by the kitchen staff and not our waitress; I wonder if they share tips...Hopefully they do. At first, I ordered a double espresso that was good, but small...
To start our meal, we decided to go with the deviled eggs.
There were two eggs and I could definitely taste the hints of mustard in it. It was not the best deviled eggs ever, but it was good.
For her entrée, Jodi ordered the veggie burger and asked to replace fries with a salad, change that they gracefully made.
The patty was made with lentils and vegetables, and I thought it was fairly good, having a bit of crunch on the outside. What was weird was this big piece of wedge salad on top of it!
On my side, I chose the eggs Benedict instead of the fried chicken and biscuits. I admit that I hesitated a bit, but thought that eggs were a better choice for brunch.
It was delicious: they were served with some bacon, as well as their famous biscuits that replaced a muffin. And these biscuits were phenomenal: flaky and crispy on the outside. The eggs were also perfectly runny and I truly appreciated that they served a salad with the dish rather than fries, giving me the impression I had a healthy diet...
This was very filling, but I still had some space for dessert and as I heard that Bubby's was known for their pies, we asked for some. Unfortunately, they did not have any! Well, it will be for another time, because I would definitely go back to that place: prices are on the high side, but it is definitely worth it.
Enjoy (I did)!
