Nirvana at Abe Fisher – Praise for the Montreal-Smoked Short Ribs
Yes, the result is tender. Incredibly tender, in a way that an unctuous short rib should be after this much love and attention (the tougher brisket cut is the typical protein used in this type of smoking). But it’s also deeply smoked and sliced perfectly to reveal a shade of prime rib pink I’d never seen with smoked meat. Our party of five ate in near-silence (the poor vegetarian sixth was left hanging for the eight minutes it took us to polish off the platters — there were two of them involved).
An order of the Montreal-smoked short ribs at Abe Fisher feeds four and is served up with rye bread and garnishes. There are currently only two orders available a night, so make your reservations for early.
