Barbecue was made for family dinners, with everything from the tasty meats to the savory sides satisfying even the pickiest of eaters. In fact, most traditional barbecue sides—gooey mac ‘n’ cheese, fluffy mashed potatoes, and buttery corn on the cob—tend to be kids’ favorite foods. So for your next family meal, head to Astoria, Queens, where Butcher Bar satisfies New Yorkers’ carnivorous cravings in a sustainable way. As both an organic butcher shop and a restaurant, the meats they serve are grass-fed and pasture-raised, so you know you’re giving your family the absolute best. Tuck a napkin into your shirt and tackle a plate of beef burnt ends and chili cheese nachos. They’re the house specialties, and they’re served family style, perfect for sharing. If the weather’s nice, get a seat at one of the picnic tables on the patio. You’ll feel like you’re in a friend’s backyard and not at one of the city’s most beloved barbecue joints.
