If you are a big fan of BBQ family like ours, you have to visit Hill Country for their Texas-style fresh BBQ and the meat-market style of the restaurant. (You go up to a “butcher” and meats are carved to order and you can ask for as much as you like, say 1/8 lb of brisket, or a 2 sausage links, or a 1/2 lb of chicken.) Then you head on over to the Marketplace for sides where you can updated versions of classic southern sides like Longhorn Mac & Cheese (the girls’ fave), White Shoepeg Corn Pudding (my fave), or the collard greens (my husband’s fave).
The recently opened Hill Country Brooklyn is catering to the family-crowd with a Fam Jam featuring the musical group, The Three Gentlemen (above) for a family sing-a-long. They’ve got Brooklyn roots with a country twang.
