Restaurateur Matthew Glazier and barbecue pitmaster Cenobio Canalizo are bringing their Brooklyn smokehouse concept to King of Prussia Mall.
Morgan’s Brooklyn Barbecue opened on Monday, taking over a location formerly occupied by Mistral, and features smokehouse fare and craft beers.
The King of Prussia outpost is the second location for the concept, whose flagship is in New York. Glazier visited the area with his son, who plays ice hockey, bringing it to his attention.
“We were very impressed with the shopping center, which we believe is one of the more prestigious in the country,” he said.
Known for its slow-smoked meats made in an on-site smoker, the King of Prussia menu features its signature overnight smoked beef brisket, pork ribs, pulled pork, plus smoked turkey, chicken and wings. Offering southern flare, patrons can also nosh on chicken and waffles, buttermilk biscuits and gravy, as well as cornbread.
Southwestern flavors also make an appearance on the menu in the form of nachos, chili, and tacos. Brunch includes a breakfast taco made with egg, pork sausage, onion, avocado and salsa, as well as a breakfast burrito, brisket omelet and bottomless mimosas.
Craft brews – including a number from local ventures like Aston’s 2SP Brewing Co., Pottstown’s Sly Fox Brewing Co. and King of Prussia’s Workhorse Brewing Co. – feature in a rotating eight-tap station. Canned beers are also available, as are wines and cocktails.
An extensive bourbon, whiskey and rye list includes pours from local distilleries like Norristown’s Five Saints Distilling, Bluebird Distilling in Phoenixville and Pottstown’s Manatawny Still Works.
The 1,700-square-foot indoor dining room – complete with wooden furnishings, metal accents and chalkboard menus – was designed by architect David Whipple and seats 70. A 1,500-square-foot outdoor patio has room for 80 seats and features a number of picnic tables with umbrellas, lighting elements and plants. An indoor square-shaped bar seats an additional 26 patrons. The restaurant is near the Neiman Marcus department store.
Morgan’s Brooklyn Barbecue is open daily at noon.
