Sweet Cheeks Q
They say the only reason parents throw birthday parties for kids who are too young to remember is because they want to hang out with other adults. And for the mini-ponies wearing sneakers. So, to celebrate the one-year birthday of her crazy popular Fenway BBQ joint, chef Tiffani Faison's throwing SC a party it totally won't remember when it's eight but, who cares, because you will, thanks to its combination of two culinary fetes (but, sadly, no mini-ponies wearing sneakers).
Top Chef-er Tiffani Faison knows there’s only one way to eat barbecue, and that’s on metal trays with big scoops of sides next to a hearty order of meat. More than a decade ago, Faison brought her pitmaster expertise to Kenmore and introduced Sox fans to the joys of true Q: dry-rubbed pork ribs, slow-roasted brisket, Texas-style hot links. The bourbon list is its own draw, as are the Southern-style cocktails served in mason jars. You’d be forgiven, though, if you accidentally filled up on the buttermilk biscuits slathered with honey butter alone—they are, in a word, ambrosial.
