I Love Their Show, Inside Neely’s Barbecue Parlor, Opening July 13

Pat and Gina Neely the stars of Down Home with the Neelys on the Food Network will open their first New York restaurant, Neely’s Barbecue Parlor, on the Upper East Side in the old Merchants NY space next Wednesday. Pat and his brothers opened their first barbecue joint in Memphis and 1988, and it grew into a small chain with three locations in the South and one retail store in the Nashville airport.For the Manhattan project, the Neelys are working with Abraham Merchantof Merchants Hospitality and chef Wade Burch who will run the day to day operations of the kitchen. The restaurant itself spans a number of rooms and is meant to look like a sprawling Southern home (one that is dotted with little pig statuettes) with a den, a porch, a parlor with a fireplace, and a bar and dining room. As for the menu, there’s plenty of ribs in a variety of sizes and style, pulled pork, ribeye steak, and beef brisket.

Make reservations at 212-832-1551 or their website.
