Tuesdays Are For Butts, Legs And Sides Y'all

City Grit, SoHo City Grit

I'm a big fan of City Grit and Sarah Simmons and I always enjoy whatever foods Sarah pumps out of the kitchen. Last night was no exception and may just be my favorite City Grit dinner so far.

Along with Anh, Molly and her dad we ATTACKED the plates of bo ssam and fried oysters all served with lettuce, rice grits and few different sauces. What a grand pork butt it was. Sarah said it was her take on David Chang's bo ssam dinner but instead of raw oysters, she fried her's (which I prefer).

OH but there was still more food, a plate of fried chicken thighs/legs landed in front of us, along with sauteed spinach with pickled raisins (nice touch!) and southern fried rice.

To finish the dinner off, it was lemon posset with macaroons and macha cream.

GOOD GOD, HOLY MOLY what a fantastic dinner.

Jim 'N Nicks at City Grit Couple months ago I attended the Dim Sum Y'all dinner at City Grit, run by Sarah Simmons. Then I went back to take some behind the scenes photos and I (smartly) picked the nights that Chef Drew Robinson from Jim 'N Nicks BBQ was guest chefting. And oh my was it awesome to take photos and to be in the kitchen surrounded by pork belly, homemade ham(!), sausages and pimento cheese (if you've been a regular at the Big Apple BBQ Block Party, you'll know about this dish), and bbq pork shoulder.

Chef Josh Gentry, of the soon-to-be-open Little Donkey in Birmingham, Al did his dinner the night before and was there to help out Chef Robinson, was constantly blasting music and kept everyone pumped out during dinner service.

Anyone wanna take a road trip to Alabama?
