Though barbecue sauce can be used to power tractors or grease slip ‘n' slides, it’s best for making beans sing and chickens dance. Start a party on the tongue's floor with today’s Groupon to The Barbecue Pit in the Bronx. The Pit's pit boss and cuisine synthesizer Rani Vaswani crafts every dish on the menu by hand, using fresh market ingredients. Her style combines traditional American barbecue with tasty Indian cuisine to create a unique—sometimes meatless—marriage of eclectic, one-of-a-kind flavors. Sink into a seat in the homey, casual dining room before sinking your teeth into baby back ribs, vegetable biryani, and a slice of sweet-potato pie. You can also carry your sweet and saucy spoils home and host a Bollywood-style hoedown with friends, family, or the well-read witches in your book coven.
- The restaurant has one of Riverdale’s most diverse menus, featuring dishes like salmon and shrimp biryani, tandoori chicken, eggplant with tofu and roasted red pepper, as well all the staples of a classic barbecue menu. – Kevin Deutsch, The Riverdale Press
- Definitely get the ribs--incredible value, always succulent and delicious. – Nick T., Yelp, 2/1/09
