You don’t have to go south to enjoy great barbecue. Here are three of our favorite joints in the Big Apple.



Mighty Quinn’s

Mighty Quinn’s first made waves at Smorgasborg before opening its fast casual, brick-and-mortar location in East Village. Pitmaster Hugh Mangum is known in the city for his authentic smoky taste and perfectly blended dry rub.

Fette Sau

The name is actually German for “fat pig,” but this auto shop turned barbecue joint is known for making some of the best American fare in Williamsburg. In true backyard barbecue fashion, Fette Sau serves their food at communal tables, often with a line stretching around the room. Favorites include loin chops, pulled pork shoulder and beef ribs, in addition to classic sides like baked beans.

John Brown Smokehouse

Serving Kansas City-style barbecue, John Brown Smokehouse is a no-frills spot in Long Island City that specializes in burnt ends, crispy yet tender strips of pork dipped in house-made barbecue sauce.

Hotel Bonaventure

While the snow continued to fall at a steady clip, my taxi pulled up outside Hotel Bonaventure Montréal. A quick departure from my cab and a few steps later, I was taken in by the distinctive style of the entrance corridor. A quick elevator ride to the lobby is necessary because Hotel Bonaventure Montréal sits on the final two floors of a 17-story business and professional complex. The hotel is located in the heart of downtown Montréal, and even connects to the city’s underground concourse.

Work and Play in Italy

Once business concludes, a world of wonder awaits in many of Italy’s incredible cities.
