Blue Smoke celebrates the evolving American South and honors its culinary traditions. Inspired by the many regions of the South, from the Carolina coast to the hills of central Texas, Executive Chef Jean-Paul Bourgeois’ menu is soulful with a selection of smoked meats, fresh produce, and thoughtfully sourced ingredients. Classic and specialty cocktails, an extensive American craft beer list, American wines and whiskey served by a welcoming team complete the experience.

The downtown location of Blue Smoke opened in December 2012. The flagship Blue Smoke, with the club Jazz Standard, is located on East 27th Street in New York City.

WOW. I’ve never been to Blue Smoke for brunch before but just wow. The biscuits are to die for and the bright eyed breakfast sandwich OUT OF THIS WORLD - how do you beat fried chicken with a fried egg on a donut YOU DONT. So good. Best thing I’ve eaten in awhile. Blown away!

We had a party of 6 and got the platter with all the different barbecued meats and sides. It was a perfect amount of food. Great suggestion from our waitress!

I booked this place for my boyfriends birthday, we had seen blue smoke advertised through Facebook and it ticked all the boxes for my fella.
I separately emailed the blue smoke as what we had seen advertised “the whole pit” was not on the lunch time menu.
They couldn’t have done enough for us. I was so pleased from beginning to end! And the food did not disappoint!

Came here with a party of 7, they accommodated us at a round table which was great for conversation. We decided to all go in on the whole pit which was perfect, plenty of food to go around. This location seems more casual than the uptown spot.

My wife and I had New Year's Eve brunch at Blue Smoke and neither of us had been there before, and we loved it. Service was friendly, quick and the food was delicious.
