Nolita is slowly becoming Little Australia, thanks to a few Aussie shops and two Down Under restaurants. Eight Mile Creek is the pricey joint, but across the street, Ruby’s keeps just about every item under ten bucks. Eating here is more about the social scene than the food; gaggles of Australians cram around the space’s five wooden tables or hang around outside. The menu sticks to salads and sandwiches—some of which are named after Aussie beaches (like the Blueys and Bondi chicken sandwiches)—and of course the essential native dessert: sweet, sticky date pudding.

GET THE BELLS BURGER. it's like a shake shack burger on crack. So delicious. Fries with truffle aioli is heaven too.

Visit Ruby's at any time of day and you'll likely see a line of people outside waiting to get in. It's not for a delectable new instagram treat or a celebrity sighting, the food is truly that good. It's known for it's burger, which is not at all traditional. It comes on bread slices, not a traditional bun, there's no patty-like shape, but the beef is delicious. It's juicy, well seasoned, and completely mouth watering. The selection of juices and drinks is also great. The actual restaurant is small, and because it's always packed, you're pretty much guaranteed to rub elbows with your neighbor. The servers are attentive and friendly as well. 


Holy Brussels sprouts Batman. Upon walking into Ruby's, you're hit in the face with the haunting aroma of "that vegetable that's somehow making a comeback". And the dish itself does in fact do justice to the smell. The waiter even told us they're more popular than fries. Yes, fries. In fucking America. Welcome to 2016?

Aside from this delectable side dish, Ruby's entrees are all great as well. Heavy on the burgers, you can't go wrong with any of them. Or if you're still trying to keep on that trendy green vegetable kick, go for the kale salad. Covered in pumpkin seeds and goji berries, an excellent refresher on a hot summer night.

And although I cannot speak from personal experience, I'm told breakfast here is not to be missed.

I was recommended to Ruby's by a friend and now I consider myself a regular.

While I haven't tried everything on their menu, I always go for the shrimp pasta, bronte and bell burger. The shrimp pasta is creamy with a hint of red pepper flakes on a bed of arugula. The burgers, I don't know the secret to what they put in that patty but its juicy and thick, what a great invention.

Service is exceptional, I applaud the waiter/waitress for not freaking out on how claustrophobic Ruby's is. The wait for this establishment is never outrageously long, the longest I've waited was 20 minutes (I've waited longer for worse)


Recommended to us by one of the local Australians working in Soho, we thought we found a gem. We had dinner there last night (their hamburgers and salads are delicious). We didn't have reservations and only had to wait for about 15 minutes. Which wasn't bad considering larger groups had to wait longer. The place is tiny but thats what makes is even better. The service is friendly. Its just one young woman and a man. The chef is a genius. We loved it so much that went back the next for lunch to try more of the goodies on the menu. It was less crowded, and we didn't have to wait at all. I also tried their pineapple mint smoothie which was delicious. I would highly recommend this place both for dinner and lunch.
