The popular Smorgasburg vendor Mighty Quinn’s BBQ will soon turn the East Village space that was last home to the new-Nordic-ish restaurant Vandaag into a full-service, “very focused” barbecue restaurant. The New Jersey–based Mighty Quinn’s specializes in sustainable smoked meats, which typically include grass-fed beef and Berkshire pork. Proprietor and pitmaster Hugh Mangum tells Eater he’s planning to open the restaurant by the end of the year and will feature a pared-down menu, with “five to six meats maximum, and the same for the sides.” [Eater NY, Earlier]
