Smokehouse Splendors – La Fama
Once you enter the barbecue haven of La Fama you are immediately immersed in the scent of savory sweet smoke emanating from the open kitchen. La Fama aims to please with authentic US barbecued meats with comforting sides – and they succeed.
This is not barbacoa or parrillada or fritanga – this is barbecue Norteamericano – organic meat that’s smoked for eight hours by “Steve – from Brooklyn” before sizzling on the grill, side dishes like a dense and delish mac & cheese and tangy cole slaw and zippy BBQ beans make your mouth water before you even taste them. And the choice cuts of beef, tender pulled pork and succulent BBQ chicken really zing. Several choices of incredible house-made sauces are provided in squeeze bottles right next to the roll of paper towels on every table.
Taking the name from traditional butcher shops, La Fama also makes Colombian choices like chorizo (sausage), chicharron (pork cracklings), morillo (hump) and costillas (baby back ribs) into new favorites of the US picnic, which is exactly where eaters will feel like they are with the wooden tables, pumping R&B, convivial environment, great food, cocktails and a lot of finger licking. Be sure to save room for a Southern-style desert like pecan or key lime pie!
