Another aspect which defines Bubbie’s cuisine is that it is what is known as a milchig or dairy Kosher facility.

This means no meat products are used, as per the ancient prohibition against mixing dairy and animal protein.

This inadvertently creates a haven for locals in search of meatless options, with multiple veggie burgers gracing their menu. Included among these are “The Ambassador” — an homage to the former A.C. hotel housing the world’s largest salt-water swimming pool — with caramelized onions, mushrooms and muenster cheese and “Bubbie’s special,” a Reuben take-off featuring cole slaw, Swiss cheese and Russian dressing.

The restaurant, located at the corner of Weymouth and Ventnor avenues, has seating for approximately 30 patrons. In the summer season, they will add another 20 outside along with extended hours of service. 

The design is simple, with tile floors and tin ceiling, another idea that is, as Tad says, “exactly what we envisioned.”

In their own thoughtful words, Bubbie’s Bistro provides “food that warms the heart and soul.”

Although possessing an extensive culinary legacy in his native Israel, the deeply thoughtful Benshitrit never actually planned to open a business in the Atlantic City area. In fact, upon arrival in November 1985, he only expected to briefly pass through New Jersey en route to a family holiday in Florida.
