Editorial reviews from the web (3)

"Join the exuberant crowds" relishing "succulent ribs" at Danny Meyer's "real-deal BBQ" outlets, which "definitely satisfy a meat craving" even if you need "a shower afterward"; the bourbon list and "super-friendly staff" distract from settings that suggest "child-friendly" "suburbia" (and Murray Hill's original offers refuge in the Jazz Standard club downstairs).

Blue Smoke Restaurant Review

From restaurateur Danny Meyer (The Modern, Gramercy Tavern, Union Square Café) comes this downtown outpost of his barbecue spot Blue Smoke. Start off with snacks and appetizers like salt and vinegar pork rinds, oysters on the half shell, or chicken liver toast with apple preserves. Among the barbecue specialties are Memphis baby-back ribs, Kansas City spareribs, salt-and-pepper beef ribs and...

BBQ into the BPC. Open-pit grilling ain't allowed in Manhattan, but Danny Meyer gives us the next best thing at this spin-off of his Flatiron fave. Bakery for treating the family, bar for treating yourself after a long day toiling for Goldman. Modern look, with red cushions, black accents. Gorge on Memphis-style baby backs, hush puppies with jalapeño marmalade, and pulled pork on a homemade...

Staying at the lovely Conrad hotel overlooking the Hudson River at Battery Park, we wanted to eat Sunday lunch nearby on the last day of our New York trip. Blue Smoke, a Southern BBQ smokehouse, just around the corner on Vesey Street was convenient, appealed (as in – when in the U.S., make the most of good American cusine) and served craft beers too. From the Southern lunch menu, we both chose...

Been a while since I had been here. Came here with a group of friends for a group dinner. Have no complaints. Fun group, attentive wait staff, and tasty BBQ.

I was skeptical about Blue Smoke, since it has all the appearance of a flashy chain restaurant, and knowing what those tend to be like in New York City, particularly near major tourist attractions (and this one is right next to the World Trade Center...) I was a little bit reluctant to make a reservation at first. But I went...

Great food and service. Sat at the bar which has the misfortune of being directly in line of the main door opening and closing. It was frigid the day I was there and it made it very drafty. Try the homemade BBQ chips with blue cheese dips. So worth it! Experience marred by cussing bartender. Too bad because she had...

The atmosphere was best described as soothing. Sunday aft. lunch was uncrowded. The service staff were great all the way through. But i asked for a mojito and got an awful concoction that had to be sent back. Never expected that in a Danny Meyer Rest. Asked for fried oysters and got Oysters oreganata. They were good nonetheless. The mac...

Danny Meyer's "enjoyable" rib joints sling "finger-lickin'", "four-napkin" BBQ washed down with an "extensive" range of beers and bourbons, all for "down-home" dough; while the "waits can be a pain" and there's debate about authenticity ("respectful" vs. "commercialized"), the hallmark "hospitality" keeps the mood "effervescent"; P.S. the Murray Hill original is set atop a "smoking" live jazz...
