BBQ for Brunch

Thinking of Blue Smoke, Fatty Cue, or Back Forty West for Sunday brunch. Where should we go?

  1. I know that I'll probably get hell for this, but I recently had a great brunch at Neely's BBQ Parlor. Aside from the baby back ribs, I cannot comment on the other bbq offerings there, but the sides and appetizers were also fantastic.

      Thanks for the first hand report LeahBaila. I''ll check their menu!

      1. re: LeahBaila

        Which sides and appetizers do you recommend at Neely's?

        1. re: H Manning

          The fried pickles, biscuits (best biscuits I've had in NYC), good mac n' cheese...

            Sounds like a great brunch, Thanks L.

              You're welcome! My buddies went the omelet route, and were quite pleased. If you end up there, let us know what you thought!

              Interesting, I've been looking for some good biscuits. Where would you say the best biscuits you ever had were?

                As far as in NYC, I would say that these take the #1 slot. Best I've had? Probably at a diner I love in Memphis.

                  I've had very good biscuits at Minetta Tavern (with the ham cooked in hay for brunch) and The Dutch (with the fried chicken).

            1. Fatty Cue is not traditional BBQ but it's delicious. It really depends what you want to eat.

              1. Had brunch on Sunday at Blue Smoke in Gramercy.

                Enjoyed my fried chicken steak and a generous serving of home-made ice cream milkshake, while others in the group had sliced bbq brisket and another liked his bbq'd ribs.

                Started with table-shared tasty cheese fries and fried calamari that were quickly gobbled up.

                Good food and great service.

                1. Going to propose an alternative off the island...

                  Char 4 in cobble hill. the best southern brunch. They serve pulled pork but no ribs / brisket for brunch.
