This week, I visit Bogart's Smokehouse (1627 South Ninth Street; 314-621-3107), the much buzzed-about new barbecue joint in Soulard.
Skip Steele knows barbecue. What's more, he has the confidence to expand our notion of what barbecue can be. Sure, you can (and should) order ribs and pulled pork here, but you can also have smoked prime rib as tender as a mother's touch and pastrami that will prompt grave -- even existential -- doubts about your favorite deli.
Visit the RFT restaurant page late this afternoon or check back here Wednesday morning to see what I think. (As if that teaser leaves any doubt.)
