Into the City

A check­list on what to do, what to eat and what to shop for.

Amer­i­can pie

In a city be­sieged by Chi­nese restau­rants, it’s a plea­sure to find a restau­rant that dares to be dif­fer­ent. Rubi’s Grill is a tiny Amer­i­can diner but serves hearty fare. De­signed like a 60’s Amer­i­can eatery, its walls are pa­pered with posters of west­erns and Robert De Niro and Al Pa­cino movies. The restau­rant also has an out­door seat­ing area. Un­like a true diner though, this one aims to stay healthy. “Our burg­ers and most of the food is grilled rather than fried,” says owner Man­ish Das, who dreamed up the idea while work­ing in New York. Das swears by his pork spare ribs, beef steak, pork chops and gourmet beef burger. Meat Lover burger, with a fill­ing of ham sausage and ba­con, is quite a hit wih hard core non veg­e­tar­i­ans. The restau­rant also serves a se­lec­tion of ba­sic pas­tas. Desserts do leave a lot to be de­sired though. You won’t find typ­i­cal diner desserts like Phildel­phia Cheese­cake here. All that steak leaves one thirsty for a pint but Rubi’s Grill doesn’t serve liquor ei­ther. At 7/2B, Dover Lane Tel 40056001
