What is it?  Anyone have one?
Yes polarizing.  NY has no BBQ tradition of its own.  There are a few BBQ places that have sprung up in recent years but I find them to be mostly trendy - furnished with reclaimed wood, drinks in mason jars and sporting rockabilly bands as entertainment.  It's all a bit contrived in the middle of the city.
