    Okay...

    Pricey, loud and tight! We ordered pork ribs and beef ribs, the beef much better. Mac& Cheese tasted like velveeta-nasty! Mash tasted like the cardboard box it came in. Get the beef ribs and corn bread. Can say anything fantastic. Nice after work/after hours spot but I didn't find anything fantastic or worth revisiting.

    Great Ribs

    I ate at Blue Smoke a few weeks ago and the Kansas City Pork Ribs were excellent. Good sauce, very meaty and lots of flavor. They aren't cheap but what BBQ place in NYC is. Mac n' Cheese was good and the chocolate chip pie for dessert was out of this world. If you like ribs, you won't go home disappointed.

    2nd time, not a charm

    I went to Blue Smoke years ago to try their BBQ and was greatly underwhelmed and found it overpriced as well. Today is my birthday and I decided to treat myself to a cuban sandwich for lunch. NY Magazine online listed their "Cueban" sandwich as one of the top 5 in NYC (shoulda checked before, that list is from 2003). It's listed on Blue Smoke's online menu. It wasn't listed on this site, which turned out to be the correct menu. No longer offering it, I decided on the Smoked Pastrami sandwich instead. I don't think I've ever had meat so bland in my life. Literally no taste at all. And chewy and fatty on top of that. The bartender was clearly not going to bother asking me how I liked my meal so I pushed it away to get his attention. He offered to replace it with something else and suggested the grilled chicken sandwich. It would have been OK for $5 but it costs $12 so it was gravely disappointing. I'm officially done with this place.

    Just eh for food

    I really expected a differnet level of food when venturing into a Danny Meyer place. But the BBQ here is really only ok. The flavor of the St Louis ribs was good but the sauces available on the side don't mesh well with the flavor of the ribs. The pulled pork had good flavor but was mushy. The brisket was dry. The Texas salt ribs were touch and, well, salty. The hush puppies were delish as were the other sides. And chocloate cake served with a glass of milk is inspired. But you go for the meat and I found it disappointing on all levels. I liked the service and the atmosphere. Overall, not a place I would return to.

    Nice place, Mediocre food

    Expensive and lousy. Cool atmosphere poor bbq and worse prices. Nowadays NY has too many good bbq spots to waste time with this place...leave it to the tourists and people who don't know better...

    Go for the Ribs

    Great place for ribs - my favorite are the Kansas City, but I also break down and do the sampler when I can't decide. The mac & cheese is one of the best in the city. A little pricey, but quality is consistent and the atmosphere is great. Service is totally dependent on the waiter/waitress that you happen to get - some are wondeful, others are less attentive. If you really just want a good rack in a fun setting, this is the place to go!

    Gives Dinosaur a Run For It's Money!

    I'm a huge BBQ fan and have been avoiding this place due to an extremely bad review from a friend who I consider to be in-the-know when it comes to food. Came since someone at work had heard just the opposite. I decided to see for myself. Trekked out on a Friday night and waited for about an hour to get a table...but WELL WORTH IT. They had the best saucy ribs I've had in a while! Juicy and meaty! Chicken was tender...very flavorful! I thought to myself, "Self, you may have just found a better alternative than going all the way to Dino in Harlem for great NYC BBQ!" Service was impeccable - my friends kept commenting that the waiter was so attentive. And the scene is great - very chill, late 20s - early 30s yuppie laid back vibe which I dig. Nice bar selection too. One complaint - my dessert wasn't that good. But that won't stop me from coming back.
