On Saturday, Michael “Bao” Huynh, the chef-owner of Baoguette as well as the short-lived D.O.B. 111 – both on St. Marks Place – was putting the finishing touches on his latest endeavor. The notoriously prolific restaurateur told The Local that BaoBQ would open at 229 First Avenue, between 13th and 14th Streets, this Wednesday.

Mr. Huynh said he had designed his latest menu around three proteins – pork, beef, and chicken – that will be prepared in three ways. The Korean-style pork spare ribs, for instance, will be cooked in a smoker, as will the Laos-style beef jerky. The spicy Vietnamese-style chicken will be smoked over apple wood and then grilled over charcoal. The Thai-style rotisserie chicken will be grilled over wood. There will also be a few seafood dishes.

The atmosphere at BaoBQ will be bright and casual, with counter service and no alcohol. But Mr. Huynh said that he may convert a back room, an office where he currently sleeps, into a “secret dining room,” accessible via a side door in the main dining room.

In the meantime, hours will be from 11:30 a.m. till 11 p.m., and delivery will be available. See the menu below.
