Blue Smoke Restaurant Review

: Dedicated to bringing quality barbecue to the Big Apple, Blue Smoke serves up prime meats, fowl and fish from the smoker. Among the specialties are baby-back ribs, St. Louis-style ribs, salt-and-pepper beef ribs and pulled pork. Exposed brick walls, soaring ceilings, and red vinyl booths and banquettes add to the room’s casual coziness. A long bar provides ample perching space, specialty cocktails, and a large selection of microbrews. A jukebox delivers jazz, blues and soul tunes, or for live music, head downstairs to Jazz Standard. In the restaurant’s shop you’ll find everything from barbecue sauce to T-shirts. The ultimate tourist spot for locals.
