Sneak Peek Inside ‘Randall’s Barbecue,’ Opening August 26 on Grand Street

Posted on: August 15th, 2018 at 5:11 am by

Time has come for Randall’s Barbecue on Grand Street. Months of delays in the rearview, the newcomer restaurant is set to start serving in two weeks.

Here’s a sneak peek inside the establishment at 359 Grand. There is picnic seating plus bar stools facing the open kitchen.

The Randall’s menu consists of barbecue classics like Brisket, Pork Spare Ribs, Fried Eggplant, Mac & Cheese, and fried clam cakes, among other choices.

Press materials also note that chef-proprietor Jared Male, a pit-master veteran of both Hill Country and Dinosaur BBQ in Harlem, also “gleans inspiration from the LES neighborhood’s historically Jewish population” with items like the Smoked Chopped Chicken Liver, Pastrami and pickles from the Pickle Guys next door. (Nothing like a traif barbecue spot in a former Kosher pizzeria championing its Jewish roots.)

Randall’s Barbecue began as a Crown Heights pop-up back in 2013. It’s described as a “Barbecue and American regional cuisine destination with a relaxed vibe and comfortable setting.”
