Hello, how are you?
I want to continue with this series of posts talking about places to eat in New York.
This time we will leave Manhattan and we will go to the Willamsburg area, which is located in the north of Brooklyn, past the Willamburg Bridge. It’s a very great area in the northern region of Brooklyn where you can find different restaurants, shops and activities such as outdoor concerts, all in all a good place to visit other than the typical area of Manhattan.
The restaurant was recommended to me by my American friend, it’s called Mables Smokehouse & Banquet Hall and it’s located at 44 Berry St, Brooklyn. It’s a country style bar, just like in the movies! It’s a super cool BBQ restaurant specializing in Ribs. It’s a little different to any restaurant that I have been to before: when you arrive you choose an available table, then you go to the bar and choose the drinks and food that you want to eat and then they give you a flag to identify your order. When your food is ready they serve it to you.
I loved the place and the waiters were very kind. We went at 9 pm to have dinner but you can also have lunch there.
We ordered the All Ribs with 3 extras or sauces, it also includes bread. We choose these extras: BBq Baked Beans, Bet’s Potato Salad, Creamy Mac n ‘Cheese. If you plan to go alone or with an only companion I would not recommend ordering this menu option, because I think it may be too much for you. We went only two people and it ended up being so much food that there could have eaten three more. Next time I would rather order the Full Slab Ribs + 1 Meat to share or the 3 Meat if it’s just for me. Below you can see some photos of the place and the food:
It’s a great place to get out of the typical Manhattan and know something else. You can get there very easily with the yellow line and the L line which is gray. It’s a place I’ll return to when I go back to New York, the food was spectacular, great and super recommended. Plus, there are many outdoor bars where you can have a drink after dinner. The price was about $ 100 for both, with drinks and tips included, which is a normal price for a lunch or dinner out in New York.
I hope you liked this post! If you have any comments, I’d love to read them!
