There isn’t a lot of barbecue on the Lower East Side - but there is Randall’s. It’s a counter-service spot on Grand Street with a variety of things like fried ribs, buffalo wings, and smoked chopped liver. As for the barbecue itself, you'll find brisket, duck, turkey, and a few other options - all of which are pretty solid. We particularly like the sandwiches that they make on bialys from Kossar’s (right next door), and you should get the “Randall’s style” one with pastrami and chopped liver. It’s pricey, but worth it. And if you want a drink to go along with your sandwich, there’s a full bar.
