A few years ago I was watching The Best Thing I Ever Ate on The Food Network when Chef Alex Guarnaschelli started talking about a barbecue place in New York. Now typically, I’m not a fan of barbecue. I don’t like to eat messy finger food while out in public. But Chef Alex started talking about these barbecue potato chips with blue cheese bacon dip from a place called Blue Smoke. I was mesmerized by her description. (Seriously, I could listen to that woman talk about food all day long.)
One Saturday afternoon while walking around the city, we were looking for someplace to eat, when I remembered Blue Smoke. We were by Times Square but it was a beautiful Spring day and decided to walk to the Flat Iron District. We ordered the chips, the ribs and the dessert sampler. The chips were everything Chef Alex said and the ribs were well worth getting messy for – trust!
