  1. love love love the choc chip pancakes and the ample amount of food each plate comes with. a must try.

    1. I work nearby and wind up at Bubby's for lunch (or post-lunch pie) every now and then.

      I haven't covered massive amounts of menu ground, but I've become a fan of the grilled ham and cheese sandwich, served on homemade white bread with pickles and mustard. I thought the smoked pork was pretty tasty, too. Certainly not a replacement for my Tennessee memories, and I wish the vinegar-based bbq sauce was actually a vinegar-based hot sauce, but a nice meal nonetheless.

      Sides-wise, I thought the hyped-up mac and cheese was horrible. Watery and flavorless, I could dig more cheese out from between my toes right now. On the other hand, I've really enjoyed the fried okra and pickled beets.

      Then there's the pie. I've tried all versions that have been offered over the last couple months, and they range from good (coconut cream) to great (chocolate meringue), with the sour cherry scoring as one of the best pieces of pie I've ever had.

      1. sounds like a try! will have lunch there this weekend before a screening @ tribeca film festival. thanks for the recommendations!

        1. Had dinner there the other night after a few midly successful brunches and found it to be down right awful.

          Chicken Fried Chicken was a thin batter piece of chicken that lacked seasoning and was served with a water gravy. Agreed with earlier poster that mac and cheese was downright awful. The only cheese in the dish is what they burnt on the top. Aside from that a very poor and watery attempt at a bechamel sauce where they left out the cheese.

          Enjoyed my brunches there, but from now on will walk right past the door.

            1. re: nokitsch

              I used to regularly when I worked in the neighborhood over 5 years ago. A few weeks back, a friend and I met there for old times sake for an early dinner before heading into Brooklyn to see a show,and after snotty treatment by the "I'm hipper than thou " hostess, we left, and they lost me as a customer. After reading these somewhat negative posts, I'm glad we didn't have to be subjected to the lackluster food after all that. We ended up at Lucky Strike, where we were accomodated at the odd hour, and had a good meal.
