NYC + Live Jazz + Ribs = Blue Smoke

I went to NYC and had the chance to catch up with a good friend from my MSc, the Chief as we call him took me to a barbecue place called Blue Smoke, part of Danny Meyer’s USHG group which includes great restaurants in the city such as Shake Shack, and Union Square Cafe. I immediately became a believer of the place, live Jazz downstairs, mouth watering pit barbecue, a bake shop, and the command of Chef and pitmaster Kenny Callaghan. 

The Place
Inside
Lunch Time
I have been a couple times, and I ordered both times basically the same, so you can imagine how good it is. First chipotle chicken wings, a classic, blue cheese dip, these wings are between the best I have had, the chipotle gives a great flavour, and the blue cheese is dense and rich. Finally I got the rib sampler with a side of Mac & Cheese, so you don’t have to decide which rib style to order, Memphis baby backs, Kansas City spare ribs, and Texas beef ribs, all together coexisting, it’s awesome, the combination of styles is like porn in your mouth, juicy spicy and sweet from KC, lean Memphis style, an smoky salty and peppery Texas style. 

A Local Pint to Wait
Wings
Ribs
Mac & Cheese
A great place, excellent food, good service, nice local beers on tap, and the chance of listening Jazz only stairs away, in conclusion my kind of place. 

Door to the Jazz
Chicken reminds me the Seinfeld episode “The Chicken Roaster” 

Kramer: What? 
Jerry: The light! 
Kramer: Oh the red, it’s the chicken roaster sign, its right across my window 
Jerry: Can't you shut the shades? 
Kramer: They are shut

Blue Smoke Battery Park City just opened recently and the food is just as amazing as the original location. I recommend anything with Blue Cheese and Bacon Dip.
