Sammy's House of BBQ - Hell's Kitchen

The kitchen is headed up by well-respected veteran pitmaster Big Lou Elrose. His menu is as authentic as it gets. When you taste Big Lou's food, you'll feel as though you're in a rural roadhouse in  Alabama or Carolina, just chowing down and enjoying life. And, really, isn't that what going out to dinner is all about?
 
The chill country atmosphere here only heightens your sense of escape from the cares and stress of the crowded city sidewalks outside.
SammysHouseOfBBQ 01
Big Lou and his crew don't believe in preaching about BBQ and telling you how good they are. As their mission statement so aptly puts it; " Preaching is for the high and mighty. We are sons of the earth, making BBQ in its' truest form". Honest, real and authentic.
 
You like ribs? Well, they've got them, tender and juicy as all get-out. Big Lou's Memphis style baby back ribs are dry rubbed with his secret spices and then pit-smoked over hickory and fruit woods for six hours.
 
Other BBQ favorites include Texas smoked brisket, that's rubbed with salt, pepper and cayenne. It's all smoked low and slow for 14 hours.
Carolina pulled pork and a tender half chicken with Alabama white sauce are also on the menu. The hot link hoagie, which consists of spicy sausage topped with caramelized onions and St. Louis BBQ sauce is one of their most popular menu items.
 
At Sammy's they've got the sides you're craving. Stand-out gotta haves range from dirty rice, cheese grits and tater tots to collard greens with smoked turkey wings.

DaisyMay 01
The pit masters and chefs here have years and years of BBQ experience behind them. Daisy May's started off as a food cart business. They had six carts spread all over Manhattan. Their BBQ became so popular that the owners decided to open a restaurant. And the up and coming neighborhood of Hell's Kitchen turned out to be the perfect location.
Local residents were hungry for something new to try. And the office workers and tourists from Times Square were only a couple of blocks away.
 
The Hell's Kitchen brick and mortar location was launched on September 17th, 2003. That's when Daisy May's received their first truckload of hickory wood. The crew here has been satisfying ravenous appetites ever since.
 
When you enter the premises, don't be afraid to go hog wild. Dig into their incredible BBQ and be sure to have some extra napkins handy!
 
You'll eat to your heart's content inside a retro cafeteria style dining room. You can wash down your meal with Sweet tea, soft drinks, beer or wine.
 
Their menu features good, old fashioned comfort food, done up with a creative touch. But no worries, there's nothing too fancy going on in the kitchen.
DaisyMay 02
They've got Texas chopped brisket, pulled chicken and pork sandwiches complete with lick it off your fingers sauce as well as their signature Kansas City sweet and sticky ribs.
The kitchen's side dishes are a cut above the competitions... and then some. We are talking creamy mashed potatoes with red eye gravy, sweet potatoes, creamed spinach and golden honey corn bread.
For dessert, you can't go wrong with the Bourbon peaches that are sprinkled with brown sugar.

Bann - Hell's Kitchen

The team behind Woo Lae Oak in Beverly Hills have brought their innovative and authentic Korean BBQ dining experience to one of the most trendy culinary neighborhoods in New York City, Hell's Kitchen.
You will enjoy traditional Korean cuisine with a modern approach.
 
The ambiance is decidedly upscale, blending classical Korean decor with some contemporary, eclectic touches. Strategically placed wall mosaics lend a splash of color, here and there.
BanRestaurant 1
One of the most exciting things about Bann's interactive dining concept is that it gives you the chance to unleash your inner chef.
Each table centers around a smokeless barbecue grill where you and your guests can take part in doing the cooking. This is ideal for going out with a group of office buddies, family dining with the kids or even as a first date conversation-starter. An expert staff member will be there to guide you with helpful hints every step of the way.
 
Should you want to take a break from cooking, ( you do enough of that at home), then simply sit back and enjoy the delicious dishes courtesy of Bann's chefs.
 
Korean BBQ uses many of the same cuts of savory meat that you are already familiar with. But, their cooking techniques together with some very special seasonings and sauces offer something that is truly different.
 
Bann's menu will take you on a culinary tour of Korea. Guaranteed, you won't want to leave anytime soon.  Meat lovers adore the Bulgogi, which is thinly sliced beef rib-eye, the delicious Samgyupsal,(lean pork bell) and Kal Bi, a savory boneless cut of short rib.
    
Not a meat person? Then BBQ some cham chi (yellow fin tuna loin) at your table. Whether you want to play amateur grill master or let Bann's chefs do the cooking for you, try the Bo Sot, a harvest of Shitake mushrooms.
 
To complement your BBQ, Bann also has an assortment of light appetizers, classic Korean stews together with various rice and noodle dishes.

Bann is the type of restaurant that you will want to dine at again and again, for a fun and festive, romantic night out.

Southern Hospitality - Hell's Kitchen

"When you're here... you're home." That sums up the welcoming atmosphere that Southern Hospitality's owners Justin Timberlake, Eytan Sugarman and Trace Ayala have created at their Memphis BBQ-driven restaurant.
 
The aim was to create a place where you could enjoy the best BBQ, hang out and have one heck of a good time. In business for over ten years, Southern Hospitality is gaining new foodies and fans each and every day.
southern hospitality bbq 02
Sure, you might try it because Justin Timberlake is one of the owners. But, you will keep coming back for the fall off the bone BBQ, a really fun and vibrant ambiance and the great live bluegrass and country music.
You will also appreciate the fact that these guys are hands-on owners who make sure that standards are kept up. At Southern Hospitality, they are all about great food and gracious manners.
 
The chefs' famous BBQ platters all come with slow baked beans, made from scratch cole slaw and corn bread. You can choose from baby back ribs, pulled shoulder of pork, smoked chicken or black pepper bark brisket. Try one,  try them all.
The Southern Bird portion of the menu features such taste-tempting items as buttermilk marinated fried chicken with corn bread waffles , Nashville hot fried chicken and the kitchen's signature Beale Street BBQ half chicken.
southern hospitality bbq 02
To get your meal off on the right foot, order up one of Southern Hospitality's fire-starters, which are also known as appetizers above the Mason-Dixon line.
Menu options include smokey mountain BBQ nachos, fried green tomatoes that are topped with remoulade and pickled shrimp as well as burnt end brisket chili.
 
They have a full-service bar here that features a fine selection of Bourbon. But you should find time to try the root beer float and their house-made Arnold Palmer blend of fresh Iced tea and lemonade.

Virgil's Real BBQ - Times Square

Whenever you're in the Times Square area, make sure to include a trip to Virgil's Real BBQ as part of your day.
Conveniently located, Virgil's is within easy walking distance of all the Broadway shows, as well as major attractions such as  Ripley's Believe It or Not and Madame Tussauds' Wax museum.
VigilsRealBBQ 01
No matter how big your party is, you won't feel cramped and crowded here. The restaurant is beyond spacious. There are two very accommodating floors at Virgil's. The ground floor bar area attracts a nice, friendly mix of local residents, office workers and tourists.  The main event, though, is the second-floor mezzanine dining room.
 
The ambiance is understated and, though casual, is a bit more upscale than you might expect. Crisp white linens are draped over each table, while shaded lamps provide subdued lighting. You will enjoy your meal in comfort while sitting on red leather chairs.
 
One of the kitchen's most popular dishes is Virgil's BBQ burger. A juicy 8 ounce Angus beef patty comes dusted with Virgil's house dry rub. This meal on a bun is topped with cheddar cheese, smoked brisket, onion rings and a generous dollop of hickory BBQ sauce.
    
A close second in terms of rave reviews is the Pig Out Platter. You get a little bit of everything with this dish... a Memphis style pork spare rib, some sliced brisket, a portion of Carolina pulled pork and 1/4 barbecued chicken.
If this wasn't enough to keep you happy for two days, you also get two delicious sides like cheddar cheese grits, grilled veggies or mac and cheese.

A long-time favorite down in Mississippi and winning fans here, every day, at Virgil's, is the cornmeal crusted catfish fillet. Hey, it may not be strictly BBQ, but this dish is still Southern and very, very good.
VigilsRealBBQ 02
You can also go country with the chicken fried steak. Fried golden brown, the steak is covered in a creamy white country gravy.
 
When it comes to BBQ and great drinks Virgil's means business.

Gyu-Kaku - Times Square

In Japanese, Gyu-Kaku means horn of the bull. That's not at all surprising because this refined, classy Japanese restaurant is all about Yakiniku or, as we refer to it, BBQ.
 
As with the Korean place that we talked about earlier in this article, at Gyu-Kaku, you also have the option of cooking your meal over a flaming charcoal grill right at your table.
But, that's where the similarities end. Both have something good to offer that is worth exploring. Always seek to expand those culinary horizons.
Guy Kaku 01
You'll know exactly what we mean when you taste Gyu-Kaku's signature Harami skirt steak in a marvelous miso marinade.
The perfect accompaniment to your meal here is a refreshing glass of sake, shochu or a frosty cold imported Japanese beer.
 
At Gyu-Kaku their Angus beef is aged for 21-days to achieve extra softness as well as a richer, full-bodied flavor.
You can also order the BBQ bistro hanger steak or the Yaki-shabu beef. Get it with either the miso or spicy marinade. And if seafood is your thing, don't forget to throw a couple of shrimp on the barbie, mate... Japanese style.
 
They offer several different "happy hour" packages for hungry couples and families. The Kobe style package for two is a nice value at $105. You will have more than enough food to take some home for lunch the next day.
Guy Kaku 02
The meal kicks off with Miso soup. Then it's time yo choose an appetizer like Daikon salad, tuna tataki, garlic fried rice or fried shrimp dumplings.
Main course BBQ menu items include Kobe style Kalbi short ribs, sirloin steak and rib-eye. There is nothing like the aroma of fresh meat cooking on a grill. It is absolutely intoxicating.
 
Save room for dessert because S'Mores is on the menu. Ah, yes, the best kind of sweet ending to a perfect meal.
 
In Japan, enjoying BBQ is as much of a social occasion as it is about eating. Bring your best buds and take a much-needed break from your everyday routine.

When you are looking for a fun night out? an evening that combines great BBQ , craft cocktails with live entertainment, then B.B. King's is THE place where you want to be.
BBKingBottomlessbrunch02
B.B. King's has achieved world renown as a performance venue that features an incredible line-up of legendary performers like Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes.
Currently, you can catch the "Decade of Soul Motown Revue" dinner show every Saturday and Sunday evening. Make your reservations so you can participate in the fun. The joint will be jumping!
Tourists and New Yorkers of every age flock to the long-running Beatles Brunch on Saturdays at 12 pm. This event features one of the Nation's top Beatles tribute bands, Strawberry Fields, paired up with a delicious, all you can eat Southern, home-style buffet.

However, what some music fans may not be aware of is that the food at B.B.King's is as good as the musical entertainment.
 
Chef Wenford Patrick Simpson has created an enticing menu that consists of both traditional BBQ favorites and down-home Southern comfort dishes. If you've never really had this type of cuisine before, B.B.King's is a great introduction to this type of cuisine.
 
Regulars here cannot get enough of chef Simpson's BBQ shrimp and grits dish or the BBQ beef short ribs. You just can't beat the taste of that slow smoked beef on a Hawaiian brioche bun.
 
Another really popular menu item is the beef brisket sliders. You get a hearty helping of smoked brisket on a sweet bun along with pickled cabbage, onions and chef's very special blues boy BBQ sauce. This sauce is alive and kicking!
BBKingBottomlessbrunch1
Chef's signature creation, though, is his cajun crawfish fettuccine, which consists of Louisiana crawfish in a garlic butter sauce.
 
Nothing says a great evening as a well-made craft cocktail does. So, pair up your BBQ with one of the bar's delicious cocktails.
The Sorceress is a great place to start. You will enjoy a mix of Grey Goose Vodka, cucumber, mint and fresh lime juice. Take the "Night Train" and refresh yourself
with a blend of Hennessy, honey syrup, lemon juice and mint.
 
From cool music and food to unique beverages, B.B. King's hits all the right notes.
