"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).

About the Restaurant

Legendary restaurateur Danny Meyer helped spark a barbecue craze in New York when he opened Blue Smoke in 2002. The Southern-influenced menu includes fried chicken, chicken fried steak, and duck gumbo. But most diners gather at this casual restaurant for hickory and applewood-smoked meats from the pit. Appropriately for the melting pot that is New York, Blue Smoke makes regional stops across the barbecue heartland, with Kansas City spareribs, North Carolina pulled pork, Texas beef brisket and Memphis baby back ribs (sampler platters are available.) There's also a full slate of veggies (slaw, sprouts, spinach and collards), potatoes (mashed, fried or topped with cheese) and more (beans, macaroni and cheese, cornbread). The beverage menu includes a notable selection of bourbons and beer. And since the popular Jazz Standard club downstairs brings in live acts seven nights a week, music fans often mingle with the barbecue buffs at Blue Smoke's black-lacquered bar.
