I know there are plenty of haters out ther when it comes to NYC BBQ joints, but with Blue Smoke, Pearsons, Daisy May, Lucy's Mexican....and soon Dinosaur BBQ.
We got some smokin' goin' on in the "Big Apple." And it's only gettin' better.
Blue Smoke has certainly improved since opening, Pearson's is coming along since expanding into Manhattan from Queens, and Daisy May - though a bit non-tradtional - is delicious and they even opened a street cart that serves hot-smoked chili made from their pulled por and beef brisket. Lucy's Mexican BBQ is new, and just gettin' it's footing, but it already serves up some great grub.
From what I hear Dinosaur BBQ - out of Syracuse and Rochester - is a top-notch spot, and they're opening in the very-Upper West Side this Summer.
Anyone have any thoughts on Dinosaur? And I be thrilled to hear a real "afficianado" give us their thoughts on the up and coming NYC BBQ scene.
