You'll love this little hole in the wall in the heart of New York's Little Italy serving amazing burgers, gourmet salads and outstanding pasta in a relaxed atmosphere.
You'll be better off if you go at off-peak hours, otherwise you may have to wait some time to be seated, since the place is probably no bigger than your home's dining room: five small tables accomodate patrons, who sometimes gladly share them with strangers to make room for everybody.
While the place is better known for its burgers, my wife and I were in the mood for pasta. Ruby's didn't disappoint. I had the chicken pesto pasta, which was excellent: al dente with the right ingredients mixed in the right proportion to make the classic pesto sauce. My wife's rigattoni in creamy chicken sauce was equally fantastic.
For beverages you can order beer or wine, which is served in unpretentious small regular glasses. We didn't order dessert but what our neighbors were eating looked mouth watering.
We were absolutely delighted by this place and will definitely come back when we visit NY again.
If you come just remember to bring cash since they don't accept credit cards.
