NYC (MURRAY HILL): THE BEST SWEET POTATO FRIES AND ROOT BEER SELECTION
By Nora Zelevansky / November 6th, 2009
Okay, so back to NYC after that small digression into the fried food-filled land of LA sports bars:
So, the moment I scheduled my lunch with two lovely PR ladies I know, they insisted that we hit delicious BBQ spot Blue Smoke. Now, I hardly need my arm twisted to indulge in some delish pulled pork or brisket, so we agreed and I met them there on a very rainy Thursday afternoon.
The place was hopping, but we were immediately seated at a cozy, cush table (half booth, which is always a good thing), as the pregnant member of our party admitted that Blue Smoke had become her primary craving during the past months because it's so damn good. She wasn't kidding.

As if the vast root beer selection (including the Fitz's that I ordered) and three types of BBQ sauce wasn't reason enough to frequent the place, I inhaled a pulled pork sandwich with coleslaw (why do I just love coleslaw so damn much?) and we shared macaroni & cheese the above sweet potato fries, which are of the over-sized chunky variety.
Okay, of course, I didn't really eat much of the mac & cheese because of my lactardity (yup, that's now a word). But my fellow diners raved about the stuff and I definitely trust them.
The only bad part was when we had to leave and head back out into the rain. Maybe next time, I'll just move in.
