I recently visited this restaurant while on a trip to New York. The atmosphere of the restaurant is nice and the menu has many delicious options. I split the burger and a salad with a friend and both were very good. I also ordered a glass of wine which was excellent. As are most restaurants in New York, it was... More

Our 4:15 Delta flight back to St. Louis was pushed back to 6:15, so we pushed our lunch reservation back from 11:45 to 12:30. We had plenty of time to walk back and forth to Danny Meyer's Blue Smoke, on 27th between Lexington and Park. We'd dined at Blue Smoke many times in the past, for both lunch and for... More

I was there on Saturday, 04/29/17 with a friend. We shared the cornbread Madelines and the deviled eggs for the appetizer. Both were excellent. The spread that they serve with the corn bread is very tasty. For dinner, I had the pulled pork and the mac n' cheese. I wasn't interested in any of the other sides that were offered.... More

My husband and I, and two children ( ages 4 and 7), decided to eat at Blue Smoke during a visit to the City as we all love BBQ. The food and atmosphere were both wonderful and all that we expected. The aspect that was a nice surprise was the way in which the restaurant offers special touches for kids-... More

My son has a food allergy and Blue Smoke was easily able to accommodate him to include a allergy menu. The server confirmed any questions we had with the chef. The BBQ was the best I've ever had. I had brisket and smoked lamb shoulder. The brisket was simply perfect and the lamb shoulder was delicious. The chef even came... More

I've been to Blue Smoke 3 or 4 times with a couple of years gap in between each visit. I agree with another reviewer who said the menu used to celebrate different BBQ styles and offered different BBQ sauces on the tables. All of that seems to have gone. Yes the ribs are good but you have to ask for... More

We went here for brunch after a heavy night of drinking. I ordered the fried chicken and double side of mac and cheese (I've been to the one in Vessey street and knew already how good the Mac and cheese was). It definitely did the job. Blood Mary's are good also. Only complaint would be that it was very hot... More

Blue Smoke is like going to your favorite (southern) restaurant, but in the middle of Manhattan... Great comfort food up and down the menu... Great ribs, Awesome sides (Mac & Cheese was to die for). By far my favorite were the Corn Bread Madeleines, which are baked to order... This place is lively, but service was excellent and quick...
