Green Apple BBQ


We went to Green Apple BBQ with friends last week but unfortunately, we had to take it to go. But the dinner combo plate with smoked beef brisket and pulled pork + 2 sides made the trip to 112th worth it. As we were leaving 2 of New York's finest were settling in for their dinner - always a good sign of EatWells.

Sunday Dinner

March 7, 2010

We had a nice dinner Sunday night with friends at
Northern Spy Food Co. The small East Village restaurant, named after an apple native to the Northeast (aka "Northern Spie") offers 'comfort food' cooked with locally (Northeast and Mid-Atlantic) grown ingredients. They are big on pork here even though they ran out of the pork special at 7:00pm. The $20 dinner special for 3 courses is a great deal. They also serve some fantastic draft beer- I tried the Sixpoint Sweet Action and the Kelso Pilsner. It was the perfect ending to a busy a weekend.
