Famed brisket competition heads to Williamsburg

Brisket King of NYC returns for its seventh year, moving to Williamsburg. The lengthy list of competition participants includes NYC homegrown barbecue joints like Hill Country, Salt and Bone BBQ, Butcher Bar, and Brooklyn’s Dinosaur BBQ outpost. Chefs from Toronto and England will also be present, and the event is being judged by former Food and Wine magazine editor Dana Cowin, cookbook author Peter Kaminsky, and chef Grayson Schmitz, among others. Brisket King goes down on April 25, and general admission tickets are $75 in advance through April 15 and then $85 up until the day before the event. Tickets are available here.

Former West Village star chef to helm tasting menu for Bushwick event
Bushwick’s pop-up and tasting menu restaurant space Fitzcarraldo Projects is hosting a seven-course dinner prepared by chef Victoria Blamey (previously of Chumley’s in West Village) on April 21. Tickets are available now and cost $135 per person. Three dollars from every ticket will be donated to the National Farmworkers Women’s Alliance. Blamey left Chumley’s at the end of 2017 and teased that she would resurface “very soon.” Purchase tickets for the event here.

Essex Street Market to add Middle Eastern fast-casual spot and additional vendors
This fall, four new vendors are coming to the new location of the Essex Street Market food hall. When the food hall moves to its bigger home at 115 Delancey this fall, Middle Eastern takeaway counter Samesa, NYC-based jams and preserves outfit Josephine’s Feast, and herbal apothecary shop Flower Power Herbs and Roots will join the existing 26 vendors in the new space. The market is also adding floral shop Saffron.

Closings and coming attractions
Mandolino pizzeria has closed at 137 East 13th St. in East Village after just over a year in the neighborhood. Paris Hilton was just there a month ago. Birdbath Bakery has closed its Upper West Side location at 518 Columbus Ave, and Muscle Maker Grill has closed its UWS location as well. But three new cafes are coming to the UWS, including The Owl’s Tail, scheduled to open this summer at 215 West 75th St., between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue. It’s set to serve small plates. Elsa Cafe & Restaurant is opening on the corner of West 104th and Amsterdam Avenue, and a new outpost of Joe Coffee will open soon at 271 Amsterdam Ave., between 72nd and 73rd.

This broiler gets its name from the "show" it creates in fine restaurants everywhere. Most chefs agree that food cooked over a live fire is unparalleled in flavor and when the broiler is in customer view, appetites (and check averages) soar!


The Wood Show is legendary for durability, ease of use, and its ability to easily tame the intense flame temperatures produced by hardwood fuels. Its unique Chef Cool© design keeps the heat inside the grill, resulting in a cooler kitchen and a grateful chef. Plus, fuel loading is easy with the front fuel loading door. A simple turn of the wheel positions the cooking grate closer to or farther from the fire.

Easy to Use

Fuel loading is easy with the front fuel above the top of the firebox body.

Adjustable cooking surface

A turn of the wheel adjusts the grill to position the food closer or farther from the fire for total control of the cooking rate. Because the chef can lower the grill at the end of a shift to utilize every last ember of wood or charcoal, fuel efficiency is maximized. There are fewer interruptions during busy periods to add or tend fuel.

Safe, cool operation

Our unique Chef Cool© design keeps the heat inside the grill resulting in a cooler kitchen and a grateful chef.

Large selection

See the sizes and capacity chart on the reverse side.

Easy to clean

The firebox surfaces are smooth and an ash drop in the firebox floor facilitates ash transfer to the removable ash drawer. Heavy duty casters allow easy mobility.

Rugged

These units are built like tanks to take the day-to-day abuse in busy kitchens.

Options

Side and rear splashes, ash carts, wood carts, rakes, removable plate shelves, sauce pan cut-outs, and oversized casters are available.
