Just had my first Pit Beef experience @ Chaps driving back to NY this weekend, turned out to be my anniversary dinner too :)

I was hoping to find out if any CH'ers know of any Pit Beef style places in Manhattan, the Boroughs or even the Island.

Grilled Corned Beef? Bottom Round? Turkey? They did it all and it was great now I need some close to home, Thanks!

  1. What is Pit Beef? I was just in Baltimore for the day and saw several "Pit Beef" signs but didn't have time to investigate. I have to say I've never seen it advertised or on a New York menu.

      This should explain the sin that is pit beef.

    2. An outfit called Cookout Grill, opening soon on West 14th St. (and perhaps in one or two other locations in the city) lists a pit beef sandwich on its menu.

        Thanks Dave! Been to your site before and looking forward to this place opening for a excursion from midtown for lunch one day.

          Just an FYI the Cookout Grill in NYC has closed.
