This restaurant may have you re-evaluating your preconceived notion of the Yiddish term “bubby.” The ardently American menu lists “things we do to make good food for you” which includes everything from frying in organic, non-GMO, expeller-pressed canola oil to sourcing fish, flour, meat and milk from New York State sources. Barbecue, which is slow-smoked on the premises using local hogs and wood, is the specialty here. The basin-size barbecue sampler includes ribs, brisket and pulled pork punctuated with hot pepper flakes, and comes with two sides (we are fans of the sautéed spinach and baked beans). Bubby’s grinds meat daily for its mammoth grass-fed burger which emerges from the kitchen a ruddy medium-rare, its juices forming a beefy puddle for the crisp fries and a homemade dill pickle on the side. To even things out, order a seasonal vegetable plate loaded with farmers-market greens or a side of spinach sautéed with ample amounts of garlic.
