I received this hot tip in an email from Dr. Doug Hertford:
"Blue Smoke has fantastic food and a separate dedicated GLUTEN FREE MENU. The portions of ribs are huge and a tremendous bang for the buck. No need to take my word for it; RUN there and check it out ASAP. The massive succulent ribs speak and taste for themselves.
There is also a great jazz club below the main room with the same spectacular food.
I have met the co-owner, Ken Callaghan, who is in partnership with Danny Meyer - the renowned NYC restaurateur. Ken is very nice and congenial; he is usually there on weekdays. His travels throughout the USA in search of the perfect rib have been documented in magazine articles.
I will speak to Ken and encourage him to join the Gluten Free Restaurant Awareness Program. (GFRAP) Not that Blue Smoke really needs more business - this is the one downside - it is usually packed and hard to get last minute reservations, so it's best to go at off times. "
Wow! We haven't had a chance to check it out yet, but thought you might like to know. Sounds like Dr. Hertford is a serious rib connoiseur! Thanks Dr. Hertford!
