I’ve been working my way around Hudson Eats in Brookfield Place, a new dining space in Battery Park City that overlooks the Hudson River.
So many great NYC casual dining restaurants are located in Hudson Eats; Sprinkles, Num Pang, Dig Inn, Chopt, Umami Burger, and seven others fill the large dining hall.
On this visit I dined at Mighty Quinn’s Barbeque and I was very excited to try it because there is nary a bad word written about the place. The brisket above has all the hallmarks of great bbq; a thick smoke ring, a thick crust, and a good mix of fat that makes the meat juicy. But ya’ll there was one problem, the sauce. I am not used to a vinegar based bbq sauce, and I don’t like it. Maybe I got a bad batch, but all I tasted was the vinegar.
The sweet potato casserole though, that was the best. It’s made with maple and pecans and even the smallest portion offered is huge. Despite the sauce situation, Mighty Quinn’s is an excellent bbq joint. You should Google pics of the brontosaurus rib.
