Before British hairdresser turned pitmaster Robert Pearson came along, New York was a town bereft of great barbecue. With a new location (the former Butterfield 81 space), and a new $20,000, 3,000-pound pit, he's back stoking the fire after a six-year absence. Pearson signatures like Texas beef brisket, North Carolina pork, hot links, and sandwiches on Portuguese rolls are all here, but the 'cue legend is not ruling out specials like barbecued rattlesnake, mutton, and wild boar. The room will remind you of the picnic area at a trailer park (if you’ve ever seen one) and the country music playing in the background is the real thing. It’s probably the only place on the Upper East Side where you can find a Lone Star Beer, too.
