Mighty Quinn’s made its mark at Brooklyn’s Smorgasburg, where barbecue fans have been lining up for its Texas- and Carolina-style smoked meats. Now it’s ventured into the more treacherous waters of Manhattan real estate, in the former Vandaag space in the East Village. The first Chowhound dispatch reports fairly priced but underflavored brisket and pulled pork—a cut below the competition at Fette Sau and Hill Country—but finds promise in the crew’s hospitality and seriousness of purpose, as well as a killer side of sweet potato with maple and pecans.
