I actually already wrote about this dinner in one of my What I Ate Wednesday posts; you can read it here.
The drinks were large and strong, and considering that at trendy NYC bars and restaurants a small, weak “craft cocktail” can run you $12-16, I thought this drink menu was actually a good deal and I loved the Southern twist.
As I’ve said, often celebrity chefs’ restaurants are overpriced and overrated. I’m happy to say that the Neely’s BBQ Parlor defied that stereotype and was actually quite good. Kiyo and I both enjoyed our strong cocktails along with some deep-fried pickles with a tangy dipping sauce and two hefty entrees…
He had ribs with brussels sprouts and I had a cobb salad, loaded with veggies (including fried green tomatoes!), turkey and bacon. Everything was delicious!
