The sub headline on my story this week is “A new barbecue spot in the land of rotis,” and that pretty much sums it up. Prospect-Lefferts Gardens is a paradise of West Indian and Caribbean food, and that’s where prolific Brooklyn restaurateur Jim Mamary has recently opened a non-traditional but tasty barbecue spot. It was called Billy Sunday’s, in a tongue-in-cheek ode to a famous prohibitionist, but apparently Billy was known for not only hating booze and being an evangelist, but also for being a rabid racist, soooo… that name was soon nixed in favor of Whiskey Sunday.
When I say Whiskey Sunday is non-traditional, I mean it’s the sort of spot that serves blueberry-chile barbecue sauce, and cherry-picks styles, from St. Louis ribs to brisket. Shockingly, that blueberry-chile sauce is really good–and believe me, I wasn’t so excited to try it. Generally, meats range from really good to mediocre, but I’d say it’s a worthy neighborhood spot on the whole. There’s a fantastic beer list, delicious, mammoth beef ribs, and a jokey rendition of banana pudding, complete with Reddi-Whip and Nilla Wafers, for dessert.
