One of my favorite restaurants in NYC is Bubby’s in TriBeCa. So, I paid them a little visit for brunch.
Open 24 hours, this homey restaurant cooks up large portions of fresh, scratch made food that will put your real bubby’s to shame. I’ve dined here for every meal, including a mid-afternoon snack comprised of their famous pie (which is actually how Bubby’s got started).
I’m somewhat a creature of habit when it comes to my brunch choices. I love a good egg dish and an amazing smoked salmon platter, so, I went for the latter (what’s up, Dr. Seuss). I got their Smoked Organic Salmon Platter (cucumbers, red onions, tomatoes, capers, cream cheese, homemade bagel). Served on a crisp bed of lettuce, the generous portion of salmon is fresh and delicious. Whether you sandwich it up or eat separately as a smoked salmon salad and bagel with cream cheese, all the flavors go so well together. The homemade everything bagel I chose was perfectly toasted, crunchy on the outside and warm and soft on the inside.
Good ‘ole Bessie with the day’s specials.
Location: 120 Hudson Street, NYC
The Long and Short: Would I go back? I’d go back every day if my wallet allowed it.
Would I recommend it? I high-apple-pie-in-the-sky-ly recommend it (and yeah, you should probably try their apple pie too while you’re there).
