This summer Chef Mitch Sudock has been having fun with his smoker, and he proves it every Thursday evening when Mitch & Toni’s hosts BBQ night.
For $37.95, you get a choice of appetizer and dessert plus one of four barbecued main courses: 48-hour ribs, so named because it takes 2 days for them to endure being brined, rubbed and smoked; smoked brisket, rubbed with 28 spices and smoked for 22 hours; and chipotle-glazed half a smoked chicken. Yet the pulled pork sandwich may be the chef’s favorite. “we put the pulled pork on a brioche burger bun that we scoop the center out of — it’s a real Long Island-style sandwich,” Sudock said. The pork gets topped with melted Cheddar cheese and fried onions. “It’s a killer, a real knife-and-fork sandwich.”
There’s usually some special happening at Mitch & Toni’s: Wine down Monday (30 percent discount off select bottles), Burger Tuesday ($10 burgers, $4 pints), Clambake Wednesday ($36 for three-course clambake). The restaurant’s Sunday Supper (three courses for $37.95) is in effect Sunday through Thursday — and should probably be renamed Neither-Friday-Nor-Saturday Supper.
Mitch & Toni’s is at 875 Willis Ave., Albertson, 516-741-7940.
