February 21, 2018 - bbq set
STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — SmokNBrew initial presented a “smokery” in Sep final year. The grill sealed irregularly over a march of a life time. And, it now has sealed permanently.
Signage has been nude of a building, located during 4459 Amboy Rd., in a final week. The space altered over from Middle Eastern-themed Desert Rose. Despite a new “Q” theme, it confirmed a few holdover equipment from a former rendition.
The grill creatively had issues with a website at SmokNBrew.com that seem to have been ameliorated over time.
“You never once smelled a barbecue. It was too large — that place was so huge,” pronounced an Eltingville neighbor who lives dual blocks divided from a skill and pronounced he upheld it often.
The place persisted for 5 months with churned reviews, mostly bad ones.
“Well we before yelpers who warned me in their reviews, observant stay away, wellll we were right,” wrote Kirsten S. behind in November, 2017. Despite that matter, a foodie visited and serve reflected on a experience.
“I suspicion we knew improved though no we had to see how bad a food is for myself. we wanted BBQ for lunch and my go to place isn’t open during lunch so we figured, how bad could this be, good we found out,” she noted. Among a offending equipment for a enthusiast were a “Cajun Chicken Moodle soup” with a dainty gas and “mystery meat” and a “Smokin Hot Mess” — indeed how it was voiced on a menu — with a multiple of food items. Declared Kristen S., a plate was “truly a misfortune $27 dish I’ve ever spent.”
Yelper Bethanny S., who was also cautioned about a place by other reviewers, posted that a “hot mess” menu object indeed delivered on a word with a look. But a censor pronounced a tangible ambience was “incredible.”
Bethanny S. raved: “My beloved and we review some of a disastrous reviews before visiting though we had to come try a place out anyway since we adore me some good bbq. we can’t know since a knowledge was so bad for some since ours was wonderful! Will be back!!”
The altogether tinge of online feedback on a place competence be described as carefree with kind difference about a staff. But eventually beating set in for several reasons: from a default of beers to no baby changing tables in a bathrooms to a altogether food itself.
Note: AKA Sushi also unexpected shuttered in Eltingville about a month ago. Renovations are underway during 4342 Amboy Rd. Like a former SmokNBrew residence it is not transparent if a premises will continue as a restaurant.
