The second-generation meat connoisseurs behind Mighty Quinn’s have plied northern Brooklyn with their take on classic, locally sourced “Texalina” barbeque, which started as a stand at Smorgasburg. The transition to a sit-down eatery was all but inevitable. The polished space’s exposed-wood planks, white walls, and hanging bulbs may be indistinguishable from those of other premium sandwich shacks, but this is beside the point: The meat counter is the star. Each tender, uniform pile of slow-cooked brisket—buffeted by its own fat slivers and blackened skin—could be a stand-alone lunch. As a sandwich topped with sharp red pepper, onion, and pickled cucumber, and paired with sides of crisp slaw and sweet-potato mash, the meat’s even better. With nine proteins ranging from chicken wings to pulled pork, the “kitchen” doesn’t lack variety. Stodgy purists may balk at Quinn’s presentation, but this is downtown Manhattan; the rest of us will enjoy its mighty, fleshy bounty with no questions asked.
