Big Apple Barbecue

Okay, we know the Big Apple isn't exactly known for barbecue. Pizza? Yes. Heaping plates of smoky, slow-cooked barbecue goodness? Not so much. Which might explain why 17 of the country's most accomplished pit masters are heading to New York in June for the 12th Annual Big Apple Barbecue Block Party. Sound too good to be true? Head over to Madison Square Park – just a short stroll from our Midtown Manhattan hotel – on Saturday and Sunday, June 7 and 8 at 11 am to see for yourself. You'll find the park bustling with locals and visitors enjoying live music, cooking seminars and delectable 'cue. Don't miss this chance to sample road trip-worthy barbecue without ever crossing the Mason-Dixon Line. Cheers!

Address: Madison Square Park (23rd and Broadway)
