Montclair and Bloomfield will be making beautiful BBQ together! Essex Junction owner Jeremy Goldberg and The Wood Pit owner Chef Lawrence Hackney are collaborating to bring BBQ to Essex Junction every day.
Goldberg tells Baristanet he had been doing some focus groups to tweak Essex Junction’s menu. He discovered that BBQ was the thing that customers wanted and, when asked which place they love, The Wood Pit was the #1 choice. Coincidently, Chef Lawrence of The Wood Pit is a frequent customer of the popular restaurant and bar. Long story short, the two decided to team up.
Chef Lawrence has shared his BBQ secrets with Jeremy, who will be at working at The Wood Pit every day to smoke brisket, pulled pork, and ribs to be brought over to Essex Junction.
The BBQ platters will come with fries, coleslaw, and housemade cornbread. (Brisket & chopped pork $16 / half rack ribs $15 / full rack ribs $25)
In addition to the new BBQ addiction, Essex Junction’s menu is expanding to offer a larger vegetarian section, with items such as veggie burgers, avocado spring rolls, soups, sweet potato fries, and more.
