So I checked in before heading out to eat last night. The will of the group was diner, with the consensus being "Go for the Healthy Option, Doofus!"
Before heading out, I stopped by a colleague's room. He had never heard anything good about that diner and, by the way, how is my immune system? EEEKK!!! Actually my immune system is fine - now - but really, who wants to go somewhere with that kind of endorsement??
The place I went to turned out to be one of the best BBQ restaurants within 90 miles of NYC. And it *really* was very good. I got a whole chicken, and saved half for my lunch today (Friday - but I didnt eat it all today.) For accompaniment, I got the baked beans, wicked tasty and very healthy. I skipped slaw, dessert and the fresh lemonade (sigh). So while I was a tad over my calorie allotment for the day, I still think it was the right choice.
I probably would have enjoyed the ribs, brisket and other treats, but I got to have *real* BBQ and not feel bad so I call that a win.
Yeah, I recommend it. Its only a few miles from a section of the AT, so hikers, this is a great place to end your day. NYCers, the Harlem Line train stop is also pretty close.
