If you like barbecue then you'll love Blue Smoke. My guest and I both had the popular North Carolina Pulled Pork sandwich and it was scrumptious. The service was excellent and the blues playing in the background made me want to order a beer and just hang out but, alas, back to work we trudged.

It's the only good restaurant in this part of town and because of that, it's always packed.

There is Harry's Italian, but food is so meh. North End Grill, but more for corporate types and menu is so limited. PJ Clarke's which has terrific raw bar but everything else is just average. The Shake Shack is always packed as well but mainly a burger joint. Then there is the overpriced Palm restaurant across the street which is just too overpriced.

I have 2 restaraunts, and this was a great meal out. Team were second to none. Well done.
Waitress spoke to chef and let me have a look in the kitchen where the snr sous showed me the smoker.
Smhae the 2 cocktails I wanted had run out as they had no cider and the bar shut early as I wanted a drink after at the bar.
Book a table you wont be dissapointed
