Ever one to experiment, Barley Swine is playing around with barbecue for a pop-up this month on Sunday, September 11. Even better: it’s all-you-can-eat. If it goes well, expect the restaurant to hold more events in the future.
Expect the menu to have the Barley Swine touch, which means smoked quail and beef tongue. Post oak wood will be used for the smoked meats, the same wood the restaurant uses for its grill. While the full menu is still being worked on, check out some of the potential items below, all subject to change. Update, September 9: Barley Swine released the full line up; check it out below.
Owner and chef Bryce Gilmore explained reason for the venture into barbecue is because, Texas, and it’s different from the restaurant’s usual offerings. He’s helming the pop-up along with Odd Duck co-chef Mark Buley.
Platters are $45 per person, and include meats, sides, and desserts, all available until everything runs out. Reservations won’t be available—walk-ins only, which means lines are all but guaranteed. The restaurant will be open for regular service as well, if barbecue isn’t your thing. It begins at 5 p.m.
