BBQ Ribs & Board Games: Blue Ribbon’s Beer Garden Opens Today In LES

Could it be? A beer garden is now open that offers baby back ribs, cornbread, ping-pong, and board games – and it’s in Manhattan?  Dreams come true, and its the lauded Blue Ribbon team who’s making it happen with tonight’s grand opening of Blue Ribbon’s Beer Garden, right outside the Thompson LES. Just shimmy through the Blue Ribbon Sushi Izakaya to the terrace, and you’ve arrived. 

The same folks who’ve brought us truffle honey sauce-dipped fried chicken & bone marrow at 2am are expanding their deliciousness repertoire with Americana summertime BBQ-inspired dishes, Belgium and Brooklyn beers, and carafes of wine. All the BBQ hen, black-eyed pea salads, coleslaw, grilled veggies, and boiled peanuts will trick you into thinking you’re in Mississippi, on a patio somewhere near a sprawling plantation. But don’t feel fooled. You’re in NY, kid. And you better love it.
