Don’t let the name fool you—NY BBQ has some really good ’cue, says droyal, who can claim a Louisiana pedigree. In the space formerly occupied by Greece’s BBQ, it offers the same stellar hot links (no tricked-out sausages, these) and very good baby back ribs.
The new owner’s claim to fame is the beef brisket: high quality, lean but moist, and incredibly flavorful—it’s slow-cooked for more than 10 hours. Instead of the old brick barbecue oven, there’s now modern equipment that’s wood-fired, and the food is much better for it.
Not sure about that brisket, but the ribs are Angus beef. A three-meat combo ($17), enough to feed two, includes ribs, links, and brisket, with two sides and cornbread. The sides (barbecue beans, potato salad, collards, etc.) are made in-house and exceptional, raves countdeville, and the mac ’n’ cheese tastes of real white cheddar. Purists might want to order sauce on the side; they really lay it on.
