Backyards in Manhattan… not so much. But we can still dream, right? Yelpers brought their BBQ game to the middle of Union Square for a night of teriyaki glazed gustatory delights. BBQ'ed meats? Check. Beer straight from the keg? Uh huh. 8 million degrees outside? Ugh, yes. All the igredients that spell a New York summer 'cue!
Glaze comes to us by way of Seattle, and teriyaki in the 206 is as prevalent as pizza in New York and equally rooted in immigrational history. So when Seattle native Paul Krug moved to New York several years ago, he realized that something was missing in Manhattan’s culinary landscape – Seattle-style teriyaki. His cravings for the sweet flavors of the Emerald City's street food led to the conceptualization of Glaze which serves seriously good, affordable and good for you Seattle-style teriyaki.
The event proved to be the perfect way to beat the elements outside. Charred meats, cold beer, and good vibes. #success.
