News of Biscuit BBQ’s rebirth, found on the Park Slope Message Board, is very interesting. Opinion on the “old” Biscuit (on Flatbush Ave. near Grand Army Plaza) was deeply divided, and unusually so… Either you loved it or you hated it, as is revealed by the comments on this Daily Heights post.
Whatever you thought of the old Biscuit, there was big disagreement on whether their “NC BBQ” was anywhere close to approximating the real thing. linusvanpelt says: “Even assuming there is such a thing as NC-style BBQ ribs, Biscuit was not it. They heavily slathered their ribs in a sweet, thick, tomatoey sauce. If anything, that’s maybe KC-style, but frankly it was more like, baked-in-the-oven with-bottled-BBQ-sauce style. I didn’t hate Biscuit, it was better than no BBQ in the neighborhood at all, but their stuff had no smoke to it. I much prefer Bar B Q, whose stuff is much smokier, plainer and less sauce-y. Biscuit did, however, have far better sides … Oh, and credit where it’s due, I do miss Biscuit’s fried chicken.”
So… history is history. Time to move on. The new BISCUIT is “opening soon” at 230 5th Avenue (that’s the spot where Night and Day is now). Give it a fair shake, OK?? And let us know what you think on the Park Slope Message Board.
