Ripe has no sign out front. You CAN get lost! Its a corner building that looks like no-one's home. It is a brown building with orange highlights and a high brown fence around the corner.
Ripe is located on Sandford Boulevard at the corner of 11th Avenue in Mount Vernon. It is EXACTLY 1.1 miles West of the Target/Best Buy mall, and 7 blocks East of Baychester Avenue in the Bronx.
***FYI***Sandford Boulevard changes to "Pitman Avenue" when crossing the Bronx border, and 11th Avenue changes to "Mundy Lane".
There is street parking up until 2am. If you got caught up in the bar scene, tell him or her that you gotta move the car before trying to seal the deal
Do not leave your car overnight on Sandford boulevard. It will be ticketed.
Take the #2 subway line to the second to last stop in the Bronx which is called Nereid Avenue/238th Street. Then take the BX 16 bus toward Mundy Lane & Sandford Boulevard. (ask the bus driver where to get off, most of them eat here)
The restaurant is 1 block east of this stop.
Take the # 5 subway line to the last stop in the Bronx which is Dyre avenue. Take a gypsy cab (don't even know if they still have those) or UBER- to the restaurant. The cab cost is around $7 dollars.
Take the Metro North train from Grand Central to Mount Vernon West. This stop is 25 minutes from Grand Central. Take a cab from the train station to the restaurant. The cab averages about $8 dollars.
The restaurant is close to the Bronx River Parkway, Hutchinson River Parkway, New England Thruway (95), and the Interstate 87 (Major Deegan Expressway)
