What I Did For Summer Vacay: Bubby’s NYC –>
In honor of back-to-school time, I’m sharing several pieces for my “What I Did Over Summer Vacation” homework assignment. This Summer, I visited Maine and New York City. Maine was Part I. NYC is Part II. It’s now Halloween season but please note that my bichon ate my draft last month (he loves paper). So may I please get an extension?
Part II – Chapter 3 NYC: Afternoon Snack at Bubby’s Tribeca
When roaming around New York on vacation, it’s fun to saunter into places simply because they catch my eye like Bubby’s did. They had me at “All Meat Butchered In-House.”
With one foot in the door, I became a Bubby’s believer. A chalkboard on the wall listed their purveyors. Maybe it was the Maple syrup from Quebec. Or possibly the paprika from Portugal. No, what really sucked me in was the menu:
All of Today’s Burgers Come From One Cow!
Imagine what would happen if more restaurants had a one-burger-one-cow policy. Yes, you can tell the difference. And, yes, the burgers taste better. But, more important, don’t you want to know your burger was not the combination of unknown numbers of cows transported to unknown numbers of places in unknown conditions? Have you seen Food Inc.? If not, you should.
I was on a grazing New York afternoon so only indulged in a glass of champagne and a piece of pie. But I’m confident based on the evidence I’ve seen that I’d be all over this place if I lived in New York as opposed to Los Angeles. Hey Bubby’s! I hope you’re getting my drift to move West.
