Grand Opening Day

I feel remiss in not giving my younger brother a shout out on the day of the Grand Opening of his Rib Bar and Grill sooner. I wanted to interview him for this article, but he has been too busy booking parties, and etc. to schedule an appointment with me. So, I will just talk about my take on his opening day.



HOPES OF EATING AT MY BROTHER'S ...

On the day of my younger brother's Grand Opening I was anxious to finally see the results of his hard work .... I was informed that the Rib Bar ... would open around 11:00 AM. I did not want to arrive too soon, so I left my home around 11:40 AM. Leaving my home that morning – during school hours -- was made easier, because – of course – my son was in school. Preparations for me, easy. Preparations for my son, not so much. I almost always forget something.

After I reconfirmed I had my ... card – I had hopes of ordering lunch – I called my local car service.

The car ride there was less than seven minutes. When we arrived my driver and I both exclaimed at the sight of several dozen yellow and burgundy balloons gracing the entrance of the opened smoked glass doors.



I walked into a naturally lit restaurant which was also decorated with yellow and burgundy balloons of varied shapes. The scent of some sort of berries caressed my senses, but try as I did I could not smell the usual smoky aroma of BBQ ... still, I had hopes of lunch. Maybe I can order a hero or a salad . I thought while I watched several young workers not noticing me while taking care of what seemed to be their assigned duties .... It did my liberal heart good to notice the work force looking like a small rainbow coalition. Suddenly a wispy young woman, about 5'8”, who looked to be in her mid-twenties came straight up to me and politely said, “Sorry, we should be ready by 3:00 PM.”

Briefly I thought, Man, no lunch . To her I said, “I'm Nat's sister --”

“Oh, I'm sorry --”

“Please, don't be. Is he here?”

“No, but Erica is.”

Before I could respond I heard the familiar joyful greeting, “Natalie!” come from my sister-in-law Erica's voice. I smiled when I noticed her, and was silent as I took in the look of exhaustion displayed on her face. Still, she sounded happy, and that to me was a positive sign that she was happy with their new venture.

She politely introduced the young woman I was speaking to as their head waitress. Erica gestured for me to follow her. I then turned my head and politely thanked her head waitress, and then followed.

As we passed four sets of booths -- to the left of the restaurant – which had maple wooden tables at each ... that could hold a total of six people on the burgundy vinyl bench seats which were placed on either side of each table. Erica was explaining to me that my brother was out taking care of last minute details while she oversaw the last minute details inside the restaurant. She told me I could sit and wait for him, and I decided to do just that.

I stuck around for some time watching how things were going. Not bad at all. I could not help, but feel proud of my brother and his wife.

Some of the young employees were busy filling ketchup bottles, salt and pepper shakers, and etc. While the kitchen workers brought in raw meats, potato salads, and other foods for consumption into the kitchen. Still, with all they had to do, some of the workers found the time to see if I wanted anything to drink. I was thirsty, but they were busy. I turned them down repeatedly. After some time I decided it was best to leave. I was truly in the way, but everyone was too polite to inform me of that. Well, that was my belief.



MY INNER DEBATE

After arriving home I called my sister and informed her about all that I saw. She informed me that she may not be able to attend the grand opening that evening. That depressed me a bit, and I began debating with myself about going back to the restaurant .... Though I was upset when my sister later told me she could not make the grand opening I decided I would go anyway. Support is not always with a group you are comfortable with . Is what I thought.


Though it was a Friday I made sure my son completed all of his homework first, and I found a nice outfit for him to wear. For a young boy -- six years old -- that is jeans, cool sneakers, a nice extra large shirt, and -- for a New Yorker -- a Yankee's baseball cap. Oh, and the Game-boy -- hand held game -- just in case he became bored.

All of that preparation and I Still forgot his jacket.

Finally my son and I arrived at my brother's restaurant by cab, and I actually was very proud at what I saw ... a packed house of customers ... enjoying their food and the live DJ.

As I walked through the doors -- this time -- a heavenly aroma of meats cooking filled the air of the – now – dimly lite restaurant. I walked two booths down, trying to find seating for my son, and me, and found my beaming sister, and a few of our cousins.

They saw me as I came through the doors. I loved that my sister tricked me. I also loved that I saw relatives almost in every corner of my brother's place. It was a family affair and I was beaming at the sight of all the relatives I have not seen in years there supporting my brother. Yet I debated going. Yeah, not proud of that.



EATING THERE AND TAKING ... HOME

The menu had mostly BBQ items -- I know it is a Rib Bar. I also noticed on the menu a Kid's Meal Selection. We were informed that there was no kid's meal available for that night. They did have cold and hot heroes though. After noticing my sister's – and others' -- large portions I decided to make one order for my son and me. To be honest I am not really a BBQ lover, but my son is, so I ordered a combo meal of chicken and ribs with two sides for my son and me to share.

My son loved the chicken. My son and I both tasted some of our Ribs, and we were stunned at how great they tasted. Not too much sauce, but with a nicely seasoned falling off the bones tender quality to them. We could not finish our food, and so I asked for containers to place our food in to bring home with us. I also ordered an extra order of French Fries -- which were great -- and a sandwich called The Elmore -- my family's name so I had to buy it -- to take home with us.


TIME TO LEAVE

Around 10:00 PM I decided I should head home with my son who was playing the Game-Boy game I bought with us. No kids his age was there so he got bored. I gathered our things together, and then I called a car service around 10:15 PM. The whole time my son was engrossed in the video game he was playing.

Even when we were outside waiting for the car service my son really did not question why we were outside. He was playing. It was when the cab finally arrived -- around 10:50 PM – that my son suddenly became alert and began talking to me -- as we both walked towards our transportation -- about his uncle's restaurant and not wanting to leave .... I just nicely told him, "It's time to leave babes. We'll come back again soon. Okay?"

"Okay mommy."

I opened the car's door so my son could get in first, and as he moved to the far left on the back seat he asked, "We coming back soon mommy?"

"Yes we are babes."



The Rib Bar & Grill is out of business now.

Hey Feenix, what's up?

Oh, that would be nice if you dropped by. Hey he has $2.00 Tuesdays. The food is still great just cheaper that day. LOL.

Also, he has this great dish, Shrimp Linguine with Garlic. I stained my beautiful top eating worse than my 7 year old. LOL. Delicious. Still, I needed a bib. LOL.

Also, on Wednesdays, drinks are half price between 5:00PM to 8:00PM.

Just thought I give you that bit of information.

Thanks so much for your comments.

N.E., I am going to stop by your brother's restaurant in the near future. I even know what train to take there, or perhaps, I'll go up there in a taxi. And because my "ancestoral roots" are in southern Louisiana (New Orleans, to be exact), I just love good ol' barbecue -- believe you me (a little Creole/Cajun lingo) :-)

Horrible experience.

Long wait time for everything.

The food was cold undercooked and in the case of mac, over soggy, and bland. It was just horrible, taste gritty and over cooked.

Hamburgers are not well seasoned and not properly prepared, its like how Eddie Murphy in Delirious described his "Home made Mac Donald's Burger" only it's worse, much like a big dry meatball with no taste.

The Place is not very well laid out and unreliably crowed is ruff and unsociable. It's not open often and I found it closed even when "event "was scheduled. There are frequent fights break out.

No Stars.

N.E. Wright 5 years ago from Bronx, NY Author

Hi Shane,

Your comments do not make sense to me.

Too many fights breaking out at The RibBar and Grill would have the police over, and the Police Prescient is right across the street from the restaurant. The owners have had to end a paid for party once for a confrontation that was starting, but ended with my brother, the owner kicking the young fighters out, and -- again -- closing the restaurant around 1:30 AM.

What exactly is wrong with a crowded place? Nothing to the owners, and everything to the person(s) who wants to sit down and eat. I know, because I was one of those people on Opening Night.

The connotations of the words ruff and unsociable sounds -- at first -- offensive. Then I think a little longer and wonder if you are trying to keep people away from a place that stays too unreliably crowded? You should be annoyed with not being able to get a seat -- right away -- to eat, but how is that bad?

You can sit in a booth, and see someone you know in the middle of room seated and gesture to them. If you want to get up and say "hi", to some one, you can. That seems social to me.

The ruff and unsociable comments sounds like something Bill O'Reilly would say, and how he thought of Blacks in a Black established restaurant. That is where I become uncomfortable with your words.

I am interested in knowing how many times you have tried to go to this horribly crowded place to state that the place was closed on nights there were scheduled events?

You have a right to your opinion, but in my opinion there is something else going on in the motive behind your comments.

Still, I do appreciate your comments, and hope you make more in the future.

Take Care,

N.E.

I wish your brother the best! What an adventure!

I have experimented with slow smoked ribs for a few years and I finally created a monster. A combination of rubs, smoke, and sauce have resulted in relatives and friends demanding a rib cookout at least three times a year, and they buy the ribs!

I also make killer baked beans, and the two dishes are a huge draw.

Men of course, are by far the best cooks...just ask your brother! :-)

I am not a ribs person to be honest, but the other day I went to a birthday lunch for my sister and I decided to order the ribs basket. They were too bony. LOL.

I so wanted to take a cab to my brother's place and order a plate of ribs. LOL. Again, I really do not order ribs when I go there. I order the sampler, which is great.

Hi RJ,

Wow, you DJed for 25 years? Cool!!! Growing up in the '70s that was a Black boy's dream. LOL.

My brother who now owns The Bar and Grill actually had Turntables bought for him for Christmas by my parents.

Actually it was one Turntable. LOL. We tried to tell them they had to get two, but they would not listen to us. LOL. My brother was grateful for that one he recieved. He was only 14.

It took me 8 months to realize I had to join others in order for them to join me. I read their work -- not all. LOL. Not yet. LOL. -- and they read mine. I love it. My son gets a kick out of it.

I take at least an hour a day to join new people. You will get there before you know it.

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2011 RJ!!!

Thank you so much for your lovely praises.

Hello WeNdYpOoPoO,

Brooklyn is cool. So I get it.

I am impressed that you studied at the CIA. That is not easy.

I do not believe some people believe cooking is stressful when it is done for a living. I do not know why they do not, because it is stressful when you cook for family, reunions, and other functions. That is your name.

Have you ever heard of "Rapper's Delite"? Well one of the many verisons is about eating at a friends home.

He ask, 'Have you ever been over a friend's house to eat and the food just ain't no good. I mean the Macaroni's soggy, the peas are mushed, and the chicken taste like wood'. LOL.

If the food is good people want to know who cooked the meal they eating. Or that one dish they sampled off someone else's plate.

I thank you so much for your comments.

When I walk in it was very pleasant atmosphere from the begin. That in its self won we over. But then after tasting the food I was truly blown away. The wings are far the best I have ever had. "Sorry Mom"the honey,buffalo,and terriakye wings are simply the best. And Natt and Ms.E hosting it just don't get no better. And for that I'm greatly appreciative. The Rib Bar and Grill is my official place for socializing and dining. D.Adams

Thank you for including the photos. Maybe when you guys go back, you can make an update, and let us know how it is going! I wish the Best for you and your Son, and your Brother's business. I wouldn't mind a Hub about Car services and the different types of transportation it takes to get around, the best, the ones you call last...I enjoy your Hubs, and thank you for sharing this Victorious review!

Good for your brother, I hope he does well, that's a tough business for the long term. I just had ribs yesterday (made my own) and they were good but nothing beats someone who knows exactly what they're doing. I love dry rub and sauce. Oh I gotta' stop, I'm getting a taste for them again and I do try to limit how much pork I eat. (and if you believe that, I got a bridge for you) Always enjoy reading your hubs, Peace!! Tom
