“Charming little restaurant, Absolutely delicious ”
Reviewed August 24, 2014 via mobile

We stumbled on Ruby's as we were walking through a busy Little Italy. Located in Nolita, It's so small that it has 5 tables, so you're sitting next to total strangers on the same table (which, for me, makes the experience even better).

There is a 20-30 min wait, but it's absolutely worth it. They have 6 different burgers. I had the Whaleys which has a fried egg, beet and pineapple. They have a veggie option and turkey burgers.
They also offer pastas and salads.
Service is fast and efficient.
It's definitely one of those moments of a trip that you'll remember forever. If you're going to Little Italy, this is the place to go.

Thank Alexis B

“Absolutely FANTASTIC Burgers!!”
Reviewed August 6, 2014 via mobile

This is the charming little restaurant you always hope to find on a New York City side street. Don't miss the burger. It is so flavorful & juicy! Also, the freshly made banana bread is just like grandma used to make. Add in their basil lemonade & you have an afternoon lunch you won't soon forget:)

“Awesome food, awesome value!”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

Life as an Aussie can be tough in NYC. Crap coffee, pricey etc; but this little place has struck a chord between offering balanced modern Australian cuisine and tasty American tucker! I don't live in NYC but I make a point of coming to Ruby's every time I am in town...the burgers are outstanding and the coffee is well...Australian, and that means it's ripper mate!

I love that I can wash my food down with a cool crisp Coopers Pale Ale. 5 stars for food, value and location. The one gripe was their space limitation, but I see they are expanding which is great because they'll be able to cope with more hungry diners!!

“Best Burger I've had”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

If you live in New York or you're just visiting, you HAVE to try Ruby's, not only for their yummy pasta (tasted the Shrimp Pasta being my second suggestion) or fresh salads but specially for their BRONTE BURGER!! From the fresh Ciabatta bread, to the perfectly cooked premium ground beef and most importantly the Sweet Chili Sauce, the Bronte Burger is out of this world amazing! It's with no doubt the best burger I've had. MUST TRY!
