Newbie on the Block: SoHo is full of trendy concepts serving exotic cuisines — so it’s nice to see homely dishes offered in a cozy environment. Enter DUB, a rustic western bistro with modern flair, which opened its doors a few weeks ago.
Look & Feel: Taking up the space SAAM restaurant once occupied, DUB stands on Graham Street. Inside, the walls are covered with street art courtesy of co-owner Joel Arnold, who hails from New Zealand. The interiors are inspired by the 70s reggae music scene — so expect a hip, vintage vibe.
Meet the Chef: New Zealand-born head chef Kaleb Davis has worked in a number of Hong Kong dining establishments, including Gaddi’s and Felix at the Peninsula, as well as The Butchers Club.
On the Menu: There’s a strong focus on top-notch, seasonal ingredients. Signature dishes include charred steak tartare ($148) and pork cheek quail scotch egg ($138); there are also heartier dishes like charred spring chicken ($228) and 14-ounce lamb T-bones ($298).
Great For: A casual weeknight for drinks and nibbles.
FYI: DUB is owned by the same investor as its predecessor SAAM — but everything else is brand new.
