I was lucky enough to attend the blogger's launch party for the Brother Jimmy’s BBQ cookbook called Brother Jimmy’s BBQ: More Than 100 Recipes For Pork, Beef, Chicken And The Essential Southern Sides last week and was able to sample some of the menu items that are exclusive to the cookbook and some that can actually be purchased at their numerous eateries in NYC. The book actually hit the stores in June and feature recipes from executive chef Eva Pesantez and owner Josh Lebowitz.
I was especially excited to get to try their Chicken 'N Waffles, as it is impossible to get south of Harlem with the possible exception of The Pink Tea Cup. Brother Jimmy only serves it at their Murray Hill and Union Square locations and only for Sunday brunch. The chicken batter is quite mild and the waffles are firm and golden on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside--and are served already lightly swirled with pure maple syrup.
