Barbeque at Blue Smoke

Blue Smoke

New York, NY 10016

Girls night out....restaurant week.... you might not think of barbeque as a top choice on a night like this, but we had a great time. I'd heard about how good Blue Smoke was supposed to be, and being somewhat of a southern girl I had an interest in checking it out. They had a restaurant week special this week too, alright I was sold...

Supposed to have a decent jazz bar there too, though we didn't make it to that. Reservations were booked but we showed up to wait. 45 min wait or so, and the "blood-orange margarita" made up for the wait in quality, though not quite quantity (small for a margarita). Very tasty though. The place was packed and the bar was full, but we got by chatting for a while. Eventually we were seated at a giant booth, and checked out the restaurant week menu. In the end I didn't even go with that menu since I saw the pulled pork platter on the menu. The pulled pork was awesome, a huge mount of it (not sure how anyone could finish that platter) atop a slice of sourdough bread, a side of tasty baked beans and some coleslaw. Top with sauces as desired and enjoy. A bit pricey for barbeque (or barbecue to be proper), but memorable pulled pork for sure. Fun place for something different and a night out.
