Fette Sau New York

Fette Sau – Barbecue, beer & bourbon

The best barbecue in New York is located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, in a converted garage between an auto repair shop and a grocery store. The industrial-looking Fette Sau is set back from the street and easy to miss, making it feel somewhat like a secret. 

If you spot the outdoor picnic tables through the chain link fence, inside you’ll find the best spot for dry-rubbed, no-sauce-applied barbecue. While the menu changes often – Fette Sau uses organic or small-family farmed heritage breed animals exclusively – the offering is nothing short of exceptional. From pork options (hand-pulled Berkshire shoulder, St. Louis-style pork ribs, ham, sausage) to beef (brisket, boneless ribs, black Angus sirloin tip) there’s something for all meat lovers. Arguably, even more compelling are the sides – including freshly baked rolls, potato salad, baked beans, half-sour kosher pickles and sauerkraut.

Pick a sunny day to snag a picnic table outside, or settle in with beer and wine inside, which is one part New York deli and one part central Texas.
