Fall Restaurant Previews

NY Mag and the NY Daily News each take a look at what's opening this fall around town.

The most promising -- to me -- are:

R.U.B. stands for Righteous Urban Barbecue, and if it’s anything like the seriously succulent hickory-smoked meats that partner and Kansas City barbecue legend Paul Kirk served up at this summer’s Big Apple Barbecue Block Party, we’re in for a treat. The menu reads like a greatest hits of ’cue, including brisket, pulled pork, barbecued chicken, ham, and sausage available by the pound or the platter, as well as intriguing oddities like deep-fried ribs, Sichuan smoked duck, and slow-cooked pastrami (that’s the urban part).
208 West 23rd Street; early November.

179 Avenue B (between 11th and 12th Sts.; 212-529-6490). Executive chef and co-owner Patricio Sandoval's East Village eatery will emphasize southern Mexico, moderate prices and a 40-seat dining room of stucco, wood and honey-colored tiles. Hey, is that Liza Minnelli over there? Maybe. Co-owner Darin Rubell is the nephew of Steve Rubell, the late operator of Studio 54. Opens late September.
