Because no one wants to pile onto your snowy fire escape while you grill up a plate of Canadian bacon, get an early jump on Summer instead with Back Deck's new group cookout menu, a price-tiered lineup of three-course grilled feasts for parties of 10 or more. Choose from: Burgers & Dogs ($20) Queue Will Smith's Summertime as this traditional cookout starts with deviled eggs and bacon-wrapped jalapeno poppers, moves on to platters of Pearl hot dogs and burgers like this grilled portobello-, prosciutto-, and mozzarella-topped Belissimo, then closes strong with mini s'mores avec peanut butter. Kebab Mania ($30) Because dudes in Marrakesh know how to throw a bomb... outdoor party, this kebab feast rolls out with pita & creamy eggplant spread before bringing it home with orzo salad and assorted skewers of not one, not two, but nine different types of meat & veggies, including lamb kefta balls, teriyaki salmon, and this Dijon-glazed beef. Clambake!!! ($40) If you're fancy and once played lacrosse in the ISL, you can likely afford this Cadillac of packages, which kicks off with calamari & white wine-steamed mussels, before moving onto the ironically named “Hobo Pack” chock full of little neck clams, a half lobster, Portugese linguica, and corn on the cob. Libations To wash down all that
Canadian bacon grill grub, grab a couple of pitchers of their West Street Cooler & Back Deck Punch, or opt instead for a bucket of Narragansett tall boys.
