Justin Timberlake and company expand their UES barbecue joint to Hell's Kitchen with this 165-seat outpost. JT may be the Memphis pop star behind the place, but it's Elvis Presley who's celebrated here, with a blown-up photo of the young king in boxing gloves and neon-light letters and wrought-iron words spelling out lyrics from the Million Dollar Quartet (a famed impromptu recording session with other rock legends) on the walls. You'll find the same roadhouse grub as at the original, including Tennessee-style beef ribs, hickory-flavored pork ribs and buttermilk-marinated fried chicken. But for this location, the owners have smartly enlisted the help of Wine Library TV's Gary Vaynerchuk to curate an eclectic, 'cue-friendly collection of vino. More down-home boozing is represented on the 50-bottle bourbon list, which focuses on single-batch varieties from Kentucky, like a 25-year-old Michter's and 23-year-old Pappy Van Winkle.
