Smoke Joint Owner Expands Into Bed Stuy

Craig Samuel owner of the Lil' Pig and Smoke Joint in Ft. Greene is preparing to open a restaurant in Bedford Stuyvesant. The Smoke Joint was voted the number one barbecue in New York by NY Magazine.

In an interview with Monique Greenwood (the Mayor of Bed Stuy) Mr. Samuel says his new venture will be called Peaches Market. The new restaurant will open in the space once occupied by Petite Basam on Macdonough Street and Lewis Avenue. It will provide an "urban farmhouse" experience. Peaches Market will serve contemporaryAmerican food with a Southern tinge.

Mr. Samuel who lives in Bedford Stuyvesant, "wants to see the neighborhood become what it could be." Click here to watch the interview and for more information -->
