Erin and I dropped Raegan off at the Majestic to see Phantom of the Opera, and there was Sammy’s right across the street.
We got in there at 1920 and had immediate seating. First of all, very good iced tea (for me) and lemonade (for Erin)! We had buffalo wings as an appetizer, and again, very good.
Erin had a Sammy Special, which is a thick sandwich with brisket and cheese. It was very good, but too much for her to finish. She had chili cheese fries, which were really good. The chili had no heat but decent flavor.
I had a two-meat combo of pulled port and brisket. The pulled pork was pretty darn good, tender, but not as smoky as it could be, and a little dry. The brisket was great, tender and smoky, and cut a little bit from the wet side of the brisket. My sides were mac and cheese (EXCELLENT!) and beans. The beans might as well have been chili. There was as much brisket in there was beans (a darn good thing, in my view), and they tasted great. The mac and cheese was baked, and just perfect.
The only issue I had was getting refills. The tea was served in a small mason jar, and I go through the stuff pretty fast, so I was waiting with an empy jar several times.
Regardless, this was pretty good BBQ. It was kind of expensive at $57.55 for the two of us, but it is in NYC. I would not mind going back.
