Sit-Down Texas BBQ and Southern Restaurant to Open Soon in Crown Heights

A sit-down Texas and Southern BBQ joint with a full bar called G. Lee’s Smokin’ BBQ will soon open east of Franklin. The menu will range from Texas-style barbecue to catfish and shrimp Louisiana po’ boys, Carolina pulled pork and fried okra. The restaurant is going to project old black-and-white westerns on the ceiling and host live music a couple of times a month. The rest of the time they’ll be playing honky tonk, blues, and soul. G. Lee’s Smokin’ BBQ has completely finished its renovations and already has its liquor license. The owners say they’re planning to open by the end of September or early October. The restaurant, located at 813 Nostrand near Union, will join a handful of other sit-down spots east of Franklin and has room for 70 people, including at the bar. Think it will be a nice addition to the neighborhood? See more photos of the interior after the jump! GMAP

  • ‘East of Franklin’ as in: “Crown Heights East of Franklin North of Eastern Parkway” (CHEFNEP), although this place is South of Eastern Parkway. We can only hope that this place is more successful than the last two sit down efforts tried in this space, including what seemed to be a promising bistro (Tavern on Nostrand) with good food and an excellent jazz trio on weekends. From the pictures above, little was done to the previous renovation but paint and decor. This smokehouse lover will certainly check out the grub.

  • Bbq, blues, honky tonk? So there
