Eater reports that Bubby's is headed to the old MPD space on Gansevoort Street and will open outdoor seating and takeout shop and all in "early September." The restaurant has two locations in Japan. Its new meatpacking district location will presumably replace its ill-fated Dumbo location, which closed last October after its landlord allegedly jacked up the rent. [Eater NY, Earlier, Related]
