Green Street Smoked Meats Opens in the West LoopBy Sarah Freeman | February 5, 2014 By Sarah Freeman | February 5, 2014
Brendan Sodikoff openly admits that his last project, Dillman’s, was not his crown jewel. However, everyone is allowed one mistake, and his newest restaurant might be what the restaurateur needs to get his groove back. It’s a Texas-style warehouse of smoked meats and cheap beer that opened last night. Unlike anything else in Sodikoff’s portfolio (Maude’s Liquor Bar, Gilt Bar, Au Cheval and Bavette’s Bar & Boeuf), Green Street Smoked Meats is a down and dirty barbecue joint located in the same alley as RM Champagne Salon. Although - like what happened when Jewish deli lovers took offense with Dillman's - he will probably have just as many die-hard 'cue fans up in arms over his interpretation of smoked meat, something about the rolls of brown paper towels affixed to the picnic tables suggest he may have hit the mark with this one.
