    I live in the area and was eagerly awaiting their opening. For those who do no know, Bab is owned by the estimable proprietors of Tony’s Breakfast right next door. (not to be confused with Tony’s Place across the street.) Bab is a fast casual place, which I am all for. However, it is a one-off fast casual place, so while you can tell they are going for the look and feel of a Cava Mezze Grill or &Pizza, they sort of miss the mark. No matter, the food was pretty good and well priced. They have a little fridge with Korean packaged goodies and drinks in their along with homemade-looking kimchi, although curiously no prices. They were super nice and gave me a complimentary off-menu soup and Puck’s soda. Over all I’d say the food was good, not great. Sort of like Tony’s Breakfast. But it was reasonably priced, served fast, and the meat to rice ratio was good. I will definitely be back.

    • Tony’s Breakfast is legit, good insider info!

    Menu looks pretty tasty. Anyone know if it’s sit-down? Or just take-out? The “gallery” section of the website doesn’t seem to want to load for me.

      There are several bar stools around the perimeter, but I’d say it it’s more of a carry out kind of place. I had a short rib/southeast veggie bowl (avocado, sprouts, pickled cucumber, red onion, kimchi), which I thought was pretty good!

  • That’s good to know. I don’t support people who put eggs in cages.

    I recommend the tofu bowl with house veggies. The bowls are very well constructed. 5 out of 5 for great ingredients! The rice, veggies, sauces are all really good. The flat dumplings are dangerously addictive. Cool music over the speakers. Good prices. My new spot to grab dinner.
