The fallout from last Friday's PLYMANIA blowout continues to swamp the Eater inbox...
Above, please let your eyes linger on what is soon to be one of the go-tos for BBQ fans in New York City. This is Hill Country, Marc Glosserman's shrine to all things pit-cooked, a massive venue coming to West 26th Street that will feature live music as well. Opening was pushed back from winter til what they're calling "early June"—which, per these pictures, will require hustle. But given the Big Apple BBQ on the weekend of June 9 (where Hill Country will be participating), we hear they're hoping to time the opening to that window.
Either way, the excitement is building. Here's one email to Eater: "Since I am a Texan and lover of all things TX, I'm very excited about Hill Country opening up. This is a description that was posted on my alumni chapters webpage looking for fellow Texans to join the Hill Country staff."
