And on the eight day, Bubby’s was created. Well, not exactly, but it opened on Thanksgiving Day 1990, and that was close enough to the start of my time in New York City to put it at the beginning. And so it was, then. And now Bubby’s continues to serve honest American comfort food and delicious pies at its original Tribeca location, pictured above, and in the Meat Packing district. The founder, Ron Silver, is also an artist after my own heart. He seems to make paintings as if he’s breathing. I can’t tell you where to find them, but I’ve seen them online. “Cooking is mischief,” he once told the Tribeca Citizen. “Getting paid to cook is like a crime. I’m a big fan of mischief.” And so it ever shall be. (120 Hudson St. 212-219-0666.)
