This is the second week of Treat Me Tuesday (TMT), and I couldn’t be more excited to talk about two of my favorite spots in my hood! The first spot is Ruby’s Café. Ruby’s is another Australian spot in NYC that has completely captured my taste buds! Ruby’s has had a location in Nolita for a couple years now, and has recently opened up in Murray Hill on 442 3rd Avenue. I no longer have to make the trek to SoHo for my coconut craving. This Aussie space is a quaint little white box decorated with the Beverly Hills palm trees…What could be better than that?!... The menu is quite extensive. There is something for everyone including Panini’s with Italian cold cuts, pasta Bolognese, salads with roast pumpkin, baby spinach, and chevre in a balsamic dressing etc. “For homesick expats, Ruby’s is also one of the few places in town to get a true-blue Aussie burger—ground beef mixed with finely chopped peppers and onions, then topped with a fried egg, beet slices, and roasted pineapple.” (Sarah Gold) Murray Hill desperately NEEDED a Ruby’s, and I couldn’t have been more excited when it opened! It’s perfect to meet for a lazy Sunday brunch, or to take out a delicious dinner during the week.
Speaking of things that Murray Hill desperately needed…. Trader Joe’s FINALLY opened!!!! I have been counting down the days for Trader Joe’s opening since I moved into the city. This location is particularly amazing! So far, the line hasn’t been too crazy, and they are constantly restacking their famous cookie butter! PSA: I’m completely addicted to the cookie butter!!!!
