Baba's Original New York System
The story of Baba … Welcome to all!!
In language, Baba means “father”, and our restaurant location at 424 Smith Street in Providence is grandfathered back to 1927 when the “Original New York System” opened at this address. The current owners, the Toprak family, are looking to carry on the same tradition that was developed way back almost 100 years ago. That tradition includes the same values, hospitality, service, quality, decor and reasonable price that the Pappas family started when they originally opened, and which our patrons expect.
