The Beast Has Been Unleashed... Beast BBQ in Monsey that is. Owners Zach and Raizy Levine who are also the owners of Day 5 Sushi in Brooklyn, are what you would call restaurant aficionados. Being fans of the former restaurant Pardes in Brooklyn, they decided to partner up with culinary genius Chef Moses Wendel, (who was the owner and chef at Pardes) to bring to Monsey a BBQ experience like no other.
Beast BBQ is a place where friends, families, and foodies come together to enjoy Chef Wendel’s twist on BBQ cuisine. A popular menu item and favorite is the succulent Half Chicken which is slow smoked, fried crisp with bacon-onion jam, pickled blueberries, and served on a corn waffle. There is everything from big meaty short ribs, and thick sliced pastrami, both made with an amazing house rub. The Spicy Lamb Shoulder served with tortillas, fresh salsa and coconut crema is a prime example of how Chef Wendel brings BBQ to the next level.
You don’t want to miss the sides such as the Scrappy Baked Beans (which are baked bean burnt ends), Onion Rings like you have never tasted before served with a carmelized onion mayo, and of course the Beast Slaw consisting of cabbage and other vegetables in a creamy truffle dressing. They also have beer and cocktails served in cute mason jars that have the Beast BBQ logo on them.

Unleashed in March 2017, Beast BBQ is conveniently located at the Wesley Hills kosher shopping area on Route 306. Chef Wendel has certainly made his comeback from Pardes with this endeavor. So check it out for yourself and see what the hype is all about.
