First Look: Route 66 Smokehouse Is A Good Lunch Option If You’re Not Paying


We have a lot of new restaurants that open downtown that are pretty far outside of Midtown Lunch’s price boundaries of $10. When Route 66 Smokehouse announced its opening I took a peek at the menu and saw a bunch of items that sounded delicious including a pulled pork BBQ sandwich that I’d already tried at a pop-up, brisket, and a fried oyster po’ boy. The last one is pretty rare in Lower Manhattan, although you can find an awesome shrimp and oyster po’ boy at Cheeky Sandwiches on the Lower East Side.

I love a good po’ boy, so I took a trip to Route 66 to try an expensive version of a classic sandwich.  Read more »

Route 66 Smokehouse Opens Tomorrow Serving Barbecue, Southern Classics


We got word that the Route 66 Smokehouse on Pearl St. (btw. Coenties Slip & Hanover Sq.) will be opening Wednesday at 11 a.m. for lunch and dinner service. The chef is an alumni of Blue Smoke, and the owner has other bars and restaurants on the Stone St. strip including Beckett’s Bar and Grill and The Dubliner. While it’s unclear how much of the “American regional” menu will be affordable (as in, $10 or less) because there are no prices listed, there are several items that sound delicious. Read more »

Signage Goes Up On FiDi BBQ Restaurant Route 66 Smokehouse


We sampled some goods from the Route 66 Smokehouse coming to 79 Pearl St. (btw. Hanover Sq & Coenties Slip), but the closest estimate to an opening date we could get was in late September. That time has come and gone, but  while walking by on Thursday I noticed signage was up, so hopefully they’ll be serving us some barbeque soonish?

Route 66 Smokehouse Brings The Heat At Elevated Acre Pop Up

If you are a long time reader of this blog, you might have noticed that I kind of like spicy food. A lot. When I ordered a sandwich from the Route 66 Smokehouse pop up on the Elevated Acre (above 55 Water St. btw. Old Slip & Coenties Slip) I was not expecting an assault of pepper so crazy that my nose was running the entire time I was eating. That being said, I think with a couple of tweaks we can get a little excited about the food at the forthcoming Route 66 brick and mortar.

BBQ And German Booze Coming To Stone St. Lineup


There are a couple of things coming to the old-timey cobblestoned streets at the lower part of the Financial District, and here’s hoping they include some food that’s reasonably priced.

Nestling into the lineup of Irish bars and pizza spots on either side of Stone St. are a German beer hall called Bavaria Bierhaus (the space seen above) and Route 66 American BBQ, which is self explanatory.

I’m not sure about you all, but I welcome any advancements in BBQ in the FiDi, which is seriously lacking in this lunch option.
