Smorgasburg favorite Mighty Quinn's is planning to open its first brick and mortar location in the East Village space that most recently housed Vandaag. Chef/restaurateur Hugh Mangum tells Eater that the menu will be "very focused," with "five to six meats maximum, and the same for the sides."
People go nuts for Mighty Quinn's smoked meats at Smorgasburg. Mangum's stand consistently draws the longest lines at the weekly food fest — it's one of the only lines that people will keep waiting in even when it starts to rain. The most popular menu item is his smoked brisket, which is usually gone by 1 p.m., but the stand also serves chili, ribs, and barbecued lamb.
Last fall, Magnum told the Brooklyn Flea blog:
I learned the love of Q from my father who was a native Texan. I learned everything by osmosis through watching him as a kid, and reading his notes and recipes after he passed away. He's basically my copilot.Right now he's shooting for a late fall opening.
