Barbecue, like wearing sweatpants to the grocery store or political gridlock, is about as American as it gets. Embrace your heritage at the exceptional Mighty Quinn's in the East Village. The eatery's opening marks another alum of Brooklyn’s summer outdoor market, Smorgasburg transitioning to brick-and-mortar and we couldn't be happier about their new stationary status thanks to Chef Hugh Magnum. The FCI graduate monitors the smoking of all the meat, assuring a thick bark on the brisket or tender pulled pork every time you stop by. Meat is available by the serving or by the pound, depending on how much you and your buddies want to put away.
A late entrant into New York City's
barbecue sweepstakes, Mighty Quinn eschewed ersatz country corniness as well as regional identification, choosing instead to make great product from the best meat in a cool, modern setting. Which it does, to an extraordinary degree. It's the best bbq in NYC.
