Fette Sau in Brooklyn



299.  I surprised my honey for his birthday and we took him on a trip to Brooklyn, NY the Williamsburg area.  While watching Diners Drive-Ins and Dives one night, Guy Fierri visited a unique BBQ restaurant in the back of a store front.  Where there are no waiters and you eat at picnic tables.  The meat looked so amazing...it was added to our "MUST TRY" list.  That restaurant was Fette Sau.  You can check out their website here FetteSau.
They have paper towels on a roll for napkins along with a trinity of mystery squeeze bottles.  The large bottle had ketchup, medium bottle an amazingly spicy sauce and the small bottle was a vinegar blended in heaven!!!
The menu is written out on a chalkboard and the meat is sold by the pound, half or quarter.This was ambiance personified!  It was rustic & basic but such a great experience.  And each item spotlighted on it's own.
We ordered a pound of short pork ribs, a pound of brisket (which was to die for!!!) and a quarter pound of the bacon which came highly recommended!  We also ordered German Potato Salad, Baked Beans and Broccoli Salad.  All the sides were perfectly suited and held such strong flavors, but did not outdo the meat, which was the star of this platter!

We walked away that evening so very satisfied, pleasantly filled and the flavors lingered on my pallet for quite some time afterwards.  I would define the flavors as masculine, bold and rugged.  Nothing was over powering and each meat or side complimented the others.
This would be a great place to experience with friends.  No need to dress up for the occasion...the meat takes center stage!!!
5☆'s for Fette Sau Restaurant!!!
