Fette Sau BBQ & Bar Williamsburg Brooklyn NY
354 Metropolitan Ave @ Havemeyer St.
It’s been so long since I last blogged I almost don’t remember how to do this. So sorry for my slack-i-ness. Anyhow, expect a long string of blogs to follow. I got tons of awesome places that I visited over the past few weeks.
Fette Sau, or Fat Pig in German, is depending how you look at it a bar with some serious BBQ or a BBQ restaurant with a great bar with full alcohol and a fine selection of choice beers on tap. Either way you can’t lose right? Once an auto repair shop, Fette Sau still retains some of the industrial accoutrements such as the chain linked fences, the industrial cement flooring, the picnic benches, and the John Deere tractor seat stools. No worries, to offset the cold industrial aspects of the bar, you have the soft glow of light from phonograph horn light fixtures on the walls and ever flickering fake fireplace video screen located inside the bar.
If you came for the food and not for the decoration (the owners btw are Kim and Joe Carroll from the unique beer bar Spuyten Duyvil), you won’t be disappointed. Fette Sau caters to serious BBQ connoisseurs and serve their their tasty succulent BBQ meat by the pound as if you’re at the butcher. They have beef, pork, pulled pork, leg of lamb, pork belly and more (it rotates).
Check it out for sure!
