The annual Big Apple BBQ Fest is happening today June 8th and 9th from 11am to 6pm. Located in Madison Square Park, I wrote about it extensively last year here and here. My favorite last time by far was Scott’s Barbeque. They had a 5 minute line which usually is a bad sign, but the simple vinegar and pepper base sauce blew me away. Other notable places include Big Bob Gibsons and the Salt Lick.
At the festival there isn’t much that is vegetarian friendly but we’ve created a good version at home using tofu (Another post to follow with recipe).
