The Dutch Does BBQ Wednesdays
So your favorite American holiday is already over. Streaks of red, white, and blue flash in your mind. Fireworks ring in your ears. And bourbon, beer, and barbecue are just a memory. Now you have to wait a whole year to do it again. Or do you?

What if there were a place where you can experience 'Murica for the entire month of July? The Dutch has brought back its Summer BBQ Series, taking place every Wednesday night until July 31. Because Andrew Carmellini doesn't just celebrate on the Fourth; he celebrates all month.
The series, which began last year and was a great success, has been brought back due to popular demand. Chef Conor Hanlon recently announced the barbecue styles and menus for July. Dinner is served family style and priced at $30 per person. Short Order attended the first barbecue of July -- the All American. "I wanted to make an all-American-style cookout for the Fourth of July weekend," Hanlon says.
While visiting Andrew Carmellini's American twist outpost, be sure to get the oyster sandwiches -- just $5 a pop.
Cocktail specials are offered to complement the American feast. Choose from $3 PBR tallboys -- the perfect barbecue match -- $30 pitchers of Pimm's Punch or $9 specialty cocktails such as a sweet and refreshing cucumber Collins or a strong and smooth bacon old-fashioned (arguably the best old-fashioned in the city and served à la Mad Men with one huge ice cube).
Also recommended is the new seasonal lobster salad with corn, avocado, and a smoked peach gazpacho (warning: it's spicy!). A bacon old-fashioned
