FINALLY, the Brooklyn Heights Chip Shop opened on Atlantic Avenue last night. Less roomy than the Park Slope one (and the Stella tap wasn't working yet), but regardless, our long neighborhood nightmare is finally over.
Beef ribs can stand up to strong flavors. Here, a spicy-sweet rub with chili powder, cumin, cayenne, garlic, and brown sugar coats the meat, which is roasted to tenderness. Finishing on the grill with a smoky chipotle barbecue sauce ensures the meat gets a nice char and the sauce lacquers.
