Summer food 2011 Food preview Bubbys Kitchen Cook Street Village

Bubby Roses Kitchen Soft Opening August 3, 2011
Andrea and I were honored to have been invited to a soft opening evening sneak preview at Bubby’s Kitchen – Cook and Oscar in the wonderful Cook Street Village in Victoria.

One of the joys of being an “aspiring” food writer and long time food and drink blogger – as well as having the privilege of calling some of Victoria’s best food providers as personal friends… is the opportunity to look “under the hood” a few days in advance of the lucky people that will soon be enjoying this welcomed addition to the never static Cook Street Village South.

Bubby’s Kitchen is center anchor in a trio of newcomers to the corner of Oscar and Cook Street; a pet store on the left and a Hot House Pizza place on the right.

Bubby’s Kitchen is a very spacious and airy addition to the Bubby Rose family of food stuff providers in Victoria – and, as Tony Bennett sang, “The best is yet to come and, babe, won’t it be fine?” One part bistro. One part deli. One part cafe. 100% family friendly meeting place.

Bubby’s will feature a patio and wine and beer. Wonderful long hours… 7ish til 10 PM 6 days a week (Closed Mondays). And everything you love about Bubby Roses’s – Cook and Meares – scaled up.

The food. More of the comfort classics you would imagine from Mark and Valerie (and partner Joel) – Burgers, Pasta, salads… all day breakfast items – plus a special breakfast menu that made me tingle with anticipation!

Details? Too early to reveal folks! More in a few days.

Andrea and I shared a Bison burger and a plate of awesome Ravioli over bottles of Blue Buck Beer. Again, tease details here readers. Do not want to give up too much as of yet.

We both have a very, very, very good feeling about this place. The excitement is palpable – and I am sure residents of the Cook street village (and beyond) are humming. Possible full opening some time next week.
