Fabulous BBQ in Napa: BarBersQ

Hit up a new BBQ place this weekend up in Napa called BarBersQ. In my recent BBQ adventures I hadn’t run across a place quite like this.The food was top notch and the setting was not what you would expect from your typical BBQ joint. It’s a an indoor-outdoor “fine dining” setup with an elegant design and of course great wine selection.

It’s only about 50 minutes from San Francisco so totally doable for a dinner spot. Worth checking out if you are in the bay area — here’s the yelp link.

Next up will try to get to Gorilla Barbeque in Pacifica. I’ve driven by it a few times but never eaten there — looks pretty awesome and it’s in an old train car — must be good !

Baby Blues BBQ

As I mentioned a while ago, Dinosaur BBQ in NY is the best BBQ I’ve ever had.

In SF I’ve had Memphis Minnies a few times, and Rodeside BBQ. While people in SF tell me that those are the best, I wasn’t completely blown away.

Luckily I’m happy to report that I’ve found the next best thing to Dinosaur here in San Francisco: Baby Blues BBQ:

It’s in the Mission / Bernal Heights area and maybe a tad pricey — but definitely worth it and has a very Brooklyn kind of ambiance if you are into that 🙂

Dinosaur Bar-B-Que in Harlem NYC – best BBQ I’ve had

dinosaur_t.jpgI generally don’t comment on food 🙂 But when something stands out I feel compelled to share ! I just wrapped up dinner up on 131st at Dinosaur BBQ. (yelp review here) The food was fantastic, the portion just-right, and the service was impeccable. I ordered the “traditional sampler” that included a little bit of everything.

Now some of you who know a little bit about Automattic know that we all take BBQ very seriously. My title even includes “QA for the secret company BBQ sauce”. It will be interesting to see what my other colleagues who have a long history with BBQ think of this place.
