RUB - No, not like that!
I was just listening to Food Talk on WOR 71 radio, and the host Michael Colameco and Ed Levine were discussing a recent dinner they enjoyed at Paul Kirk & Andrew Fischel's RUB restaurant. Josh Ozersky from Grub Street and Rob Richter from the soon to be opened Hill Country restaurant and competitor at Grillin' On The Bay were also in attendance. (Boys, I must have missed the phone call.)
Mike and Ed were raving about the recent addition of spicy bacon to the menu (damn good stuff if I say so myself) and how Andrew and Scottie, pitmaster at RUB, keep the smokers full with a wide variety of offerings. From Peking duck to turkey to the more traditional items like brisket and ribs, RUB's menu offers something for everyone.
But then, Ed Levine let loose the ultimate compliment (?) - "Andrew at RUB is a barbecue slut." I haven't laughed out loud at the radio in a very long long time. I can't wait to see what Andrew thinks about this!
