What you're getting: Lamb ribs, burnt ends
Fletcher’s has some of New York’s more diverse barbecue offerings. In addition to the usual suspects -- brisket, burnt ends, St. Louis-style spareribs, pulled pork -- Fletcher’s offers a rotating list of special meats which range from uncommon regional specialties (Kentucky lamb ribs) to the outright unusual (barbecue char-siu pork). It’s a solid option if you’re looking for straight-up BBQ, but it really shines if you’re in the mood for something a bit more unusual.
