For the first time ever, Danny Meyer's Blue Smoke will begin serving brunch this weekend at the Battery Park location, with Flatiron to follow. Louisiana native chef Jean-Paul Bourgeois recently took the helm in the kitchen at the once barbecue-focused eatery and has transformed the menu into one that celebrates all things Southern, which naturally means brunch is a must. The menu features items like shrimp and grits, a burnt ends brisket sandwich with scrambled eggs, a biscuit sandwich (pictured above), breakfast burrito and pit-cooked BBQ like spare ribs and pulled pork. Pastries like beignets, biscuits and doughnuts are brought to you by Union Square Cafe alum Emily Isaac. Drink options include NOLA-inspired cocktails, fresh squeezed juice blends and craft coffee. Check out the full menu below.
