    We are from Kansas City Mo., and recently moved to east coast. We took the train from Philadelphia, to NYC to eat lunch at Blue Smoke. We were not disappointed, the ribs were served wet and were very moist, the chicken was served with dry rub and was not over cooked like you get in a lot of place's, the mac cheese could of used a little more smoke on it, the bean's were sweet, the Cole slaw was excellent. We had the Texas Twinkies for an appetizer that I'm going to try replicate, they were that good. I've not had the white BBQ sauce very many time's before so I can't say one way or the other, it was not bad on the chicken, the BBQ sauce had North Carolina vibe to it, but was good. All in all this is the closest thing to KC style BBQ that we have found on the east coast. We will go back again

    We held our Business Team dinner at Blue Smoke followed by Jazz at the Jazz Standard standard. Everything was phenomenal. We would definitely use this venue again. It was highly recommended to us and everyone had a fabulous time.

    Went to have lunch with family members. We decided on this place because the menu looked good as did the ambiance. We were all underwhelmed with our orders, except for the madelines. Maybe our mistake was that we did not go straight for the BBQ meats. If I try this place again, I'll have to try the BBQ choices. Also, the service was very energetic and polite. They were also able to accommodate my toddler son. Thanks.

    A classic Danny Meyer hospitality experience where every element was addressed and tended to. It’s what keeps us coming back.

    The food was all precooked and barely warmed when it came to the table. For 3 people the meal cost $175, the quality was extremely disappointing and the restaurant was freezing cold.

    Best BBQ in the area for ribs, and one of the few spots that offers beef ribs. Highly recommend for ribs.
