It has been a while since I wanted to go to Bubby's in TriBeCa for dinner, especially after I tried their brunch at their location in the Meat Packing District. So we went there, on a Friday night and I was really surprised to see that many people with their kids there. I like the place: quite rustic with an interesting vibe.
We decided to start our meal with an appetizer and chose their fried onions. We were not really expecting a big dish and were surprised when they served us a full plate. I mean, I am not going to complain considering that it was very good: not too greasy and crispy, I put this in the category of comfort food.
Then, for her entrée, Jodi decided to order their wedge salad that was composed of baby gem lettuce, Maytag blue cheese, red onion, bacon lardon in a smoked tomato dressing. Nothing to rave about, but still good.
On my side, I hesitated between the BBQ dishes, especially the ribs, and their fried chicken and biscuits. I chose the latter considering how good their biscuits are...
The fried chicken came with butter and jam for the biscuits and it could have been my entire meal, the biscuits being quite dense and fantastic: probably the best ones I ever had. The fried chicken was ok: some pieces were moist, some dry. For sure their give you a lot of it.
Then, we were ready to get dessert and were a bit worried that they would tell us that they did not have anymore pies, considering how unlucky we were when we went there for brunch. Fortunately they had some and, as the waiter was giving the different choices of pies that night, my mind stopped at the banoffee, a pie made with banana, cream and toffee. This was spectacular: not too sweet, the whipped cream cutting the sweetness of the toffee, I could have eaten an entire pie. At that point, I regretted that they do not have a take out place similar to Junior's, where you can just go for their pies.
The dinner was good, especially the dessert, but I definitely prefer the brunch at Bubby's: eggs and pie would be the perfect meal for me. So I would surely go back...
Enjoy (I did)!
