I’ve finally (finally!) had a chance to try out the not-so-new-anymore Dinosaur BBQ outpost in Gowanus, and the verdict is in: Dinosaur wins the Gowanus BBQ wars!
How Gowanus, of all places, became host to three excellent BBQ joints still remains a mystery; I suppose it’s a confluence of the [relatively] cheap rent and available space in the neighborhood with the peaking BBQ trend in NYC. But so it is: Fletcher’s, Fort Reno and Dinosaur all co-exist within a few blocks of each other. What are their strengths and weaknesses? Does one win out overall?
