Bark Barbecue—NYC’S hottest BBQ—is coming to Time Out Market New York

The Texas-Dominican style beloved barbecue spot to open its first permanent location

Bark Barbecue is an idea first pioneered in 2020 in Ozone Park, Queens, and the local favorite has quickly established itself as one of the top barbecue concepts in New York, known for its fresh smoked meats. Now Bark Barbecue joins Time Out Market New York for its very first brick-and-mortar location.

At the Market, Ruben Santana—the owner and pitmaster of Bark Barbecue—will be offering his much-loved Latin-inspired take on classic barbecue, incorporating Texas-styled cooking techniques with savory Dominican seasoning and flavor. 

On November 16th, Time Out Market New York will welcome Bark Barbecue to their already impressive editorially curated mix of the best of the city. The menu will feature mouthwatering bites like brisket (smoked for at least 14 hours), Chicharrones (Dominican-style Pork Belly) and house-made Longaniza Sausage (Pork blend with Fried Cheese), a first for Bark. Bark will provide guests with fresh meat smoked using exclusively white oak, giving it a truly rich flavor that cannot be replicated by other woods. The best of New York City all under one roof, Time Out Market New York is home to 21 kitchens, three bars, and stunning rooftop views of both the Brooklyn Bridge and the Manhattan skyline. 

“Opening our first permanent location at Time Out Market New York is a great honor and an exciting next step on our journey. We’ve seen such amazing demand and appetite for our pop-up and we’re thrilled that we are now able to serve our barbecue every day in such a great location and alongside some of the city’s best chefs,” said Ruben Santana, Founder and Pit Master of Bark Barbecue.

A concept that originated out of Founder Ruben Santana’s backyard, Bark will feature dishes such as:

  • Smoked Turkey Breast – Turkey smoked for at least four hours and then held in butter
  • Brisket – Smoked for at least fourteen hours
  • Dominican Torta – Bark’s take on Cornbread 
  • Arroz Congri –  Black beans and rice dish
