Percy Street Barbecue, the popular South Street bbq joint from restaurateurs Michael Solomonov and Stephen Cook, and chef-partner Erin O’Shea, announced plans this morning to bring their smoked meats to the Market & Shops at Comcast Center at 17th Street and JFK Boulevard this October. According to a prepared statement, the Percy Street satellite will serve pit mistress O’Shea’s Texas-style meats in sandwich form. The menu will include sliced brisket sandwich with sharp cheddar, horseradish mayo and pickled green tomato; pulled pork sandwich with collard greens, provolone and Percy Street’s housemade Sweet Thang BBQ Sauce; chopped brisket sandwich with pickles, fried onions and cheddar sauce; and boneless ribs with coleslaw and a choice of sauce. It will also serve a selection of side dishes, mini pecan and Key lime pies.
Meanwhile across town, Marcie Turney and Valerie Safran, the dynamic duo behind Barbuzzo, Lolita and a host of other businesses along Midtown Village’s main drag, are turning their Indian BYOB, Bindi, into Jamonera, a Spanish wine bar. Meal Ticket reports that renovations will include building a 10 to 12 seat bar. With their recently acquired liquor license, Turney and Safran plan to offer draught beers and Spanish wines, plus cocktails and a menu inspired by the Iberian peninsula.
