America's Best New BBQ
Fette Sau, Philadelphia
This new Fishtown outpost of Joe Carroll’s Williamsburg, NY, original has the trappings of BBQ 2.0, namely, a shotgun shack–chic exterior and a menu of naturally raised, hormone-free meats, craft beers, and whiskey-based cocktails. It also serves some of the most soul-satisfying fare north of the Mason-Dixon. All meats are rubbed with cumin, cinnamon, brown sugar, cayenne, and espresso, and oak-smoked until the outside is just crusty and charred enough and the insides are perfectly tender.
