Please forgive Danny Meyer for trying to create something fun in NYC. Forgive him for attempting to give the city a little bbq; lord knows there's all ready so much of it around! Is it a bad thing that he wants to have a big bar with a kickin jukebox and some fun comfort food? Press happens when you're as big as DM. Get over it! Sorry you didn't like the ribs.. But as all you aficianodos all ready know BBQ is a really personal thing and styles change from county to county; one half of a town usually differs from the other half! why not go in .. put some tunes in the jukebox, get a nice cold beer, have some ribs & slaw and enjoy yourselves.. is it that hard? If so then maybe you shouldn't be there in the first place!
