Called in here as a last blow out before leaving NYC. It did not disappoint. The gluten free choices were plentiful and the baby back ribs were amazing. Brilliant staff and great cocktails, would definitely recommend.

Fun environment, exceptional BBQ and fantastic service (thank you, Emily!!!!). Sit at the bar or at a table, same great food. We recommend both the baby back spareribs and the pulled pork.

Call it "haute" barbecue or whatever you'd like, but Danny Meyer's elevated take on a Southern staple hits all the right notes. Recommended: the chopped pork. Bonus: the Madeleine-shaped cornbread served @ the beginning (with a rich, butterscotch-y dipping sauce) is out of this world.
