Bubby’s

Bubby’s is famous around NYC when it comes to brunch.  I think that’s because for a long time it was the only cute place in the highly residential TriBeCa for a long time.  More restaurants have entered the neighborhood, but Bubby’s remains a favorite thanks to it’s consistently good comfort food and amazing drinks. Let…

Loc’s Chicken and Waffles

If you live near Sandfly and are looking for a legit breakfast, Loc’s is where it’s at.  Honestly, I would eat there even if it wasn’t in my own neighborhood because I would say it might be the best diner in Savannah. Obviously, you could get the waffles and my 20-month-old nephew, Brooks, will certainly…

The Howlin Hound

My father did not decide to eat at The Howlin Hound for lunch because it was close to his office.  He didn’t choose to eat there because the food it good.  He didn’t pick this place because he wanted to show me a high school friend’s new business venture.  Nope, when I was home he…

Meatloaf Muffins

Meatloaf may sound to some like a cafeteria meal or at least something from a bygone era, but I love it.  Meatloaf is freakin tasty, y’all!  Here’s the problem, it usually takes about an hour and a half to make.  It makes sense since you’re talking about cooking a mound of meat, but that’s just…

Burnside Biscuits

I was saving this review because I had submitted it for a Time Out New York food critic competition.  But since I haven’t heard back from them, I’m guessing I lost (now is the time to shout “she was robbed!”) so I’m sharing my review with all of y’all: We Southerners living in NYC guard…

Butcher Bar

The only thing that made my meal at Butcher Bar brunchy was the endless mimosas I drank.  Sure, there are some good bbq + eggs dishes on the menu, but when you’re eating at 2 PM, it’s time to admit that you’ve given up on the breakfast wagon.  2 PM is not too late, however,…

The Grey

By far the coolest thing about The Grey, Savannah’s hottest new restaurant, is hearing about its history from the people who lived it.  The restaurant is inside a converted Greyhound bus terminal, which the owner has modernized while maintaining the glitz of its original art deco touches.  As soon as we sat down, my father began pointing…

Sweet Chick

Yesterday was drizzly and blah so Albert and I decided to go on a Sunday adventure, which really just means trying a new restaurant in a different neighborhood instead of going to an old standby.  We wound up  at Sweet Chick because I suddenly remembered they were famous for chicken and waffles and I could think…

Warehouse Grille

The morning after a wedding you want greasy food and you want it immediately.  We didn’t have to walk far from our hotel to find Warehouse Grille, which satisfied our need for food and also our need for a little hair of the dog thanks to their $10 bottomless brunch deal. The menu at Warehouse…

Birds & Bubbles

On Friday I was invited to a dinner with some fellow NYC Dawgs and members of the Alumni Association.  We went to Birds & Bubbles as the chef and owner is a UGA grad and former NYC Dawgs prez.  Before she stepped down to focus more on being the absurdly talented New York chef she is, she…
