The Daily News has a piece about Brooklyn’s best eateries today. Dumbo institutions Grimaldi’s and River Cafe made the list of Brooklyn’s top restaurants in Zagat’s top 50.

Meanwhile, NYCnosh.com, a food blog has a thorough review of Bubby’s in Dumbo. While I haven’t had all the entrees they reviewed, I agree that some dishes are wonderful, while others are just plain. I’ve had both brunch and dinner there. The dinner was disappointing compared to their brunch. I had their burger, where their bun was so thick and dry, and the sides were bland that I decided that I was not going there for dinner again. The brunch is a different story. I’ve been to Bubby’s in Tribeca and had very good brunch there. So I recently went back to the Dumbo Bubby’s for brunch. If you like sweet breakfasts, their french toast, waffles, and pancakes are very good. The best savory dishes include the corn beef hash, apple turkey sausage, and thick cut bacon.
I hate to say this because Bubby’s in Dumbo is in my neighborhood, but I prefer Bubby’s for brunch over dinner. Their homemade pies are delicious.
