Oh how I miss the Ripe Tomato...fabulous ribs, quite possibly the best in the Capital region (sorry, Butcher Block). The staff is very friendly and if you're good, the owner will visit you with a bottle of Zambuca after dinner. The overall value is good to, although the place is a bit hard to find. The restaurant is cozy and not at all pretentious. A good venue for both families (although probably for special occasions) and the romance-seekers. I gladly make the drive from Albany just to visit this place, one of my favorites.
Pros: Excellent Food, Friendly Service, Cozy Ambience
Cons: It's In East Bumble.., No more cons.
