Smoke BBQ Taqueria opened at the beginning of February. Hours are listed as:
Lawrenceville United and Lawrenceville Corporation convened a meeting on December 3, 2013 at Stephen Foster’s to discuss the proposed opening of Smoke BBQ and Taqueria at 4115 Butler Street. A handful of residents attended, and the owners presented their vision for the space, as well as a general overview for the business and its operations. Smoke is currently located in Homestead and will be relocating to Lawrenceville. They are excited to become a part of the community. They will offer a similar menu as their Homestead location and are planning to be open Tuesday – Wednesday 11 am – 11 pm; Thursday – Friday 11 am – 12 am, Saturday 9 am – 12 pm, and Sunday 9 am – 7pm. They will be using approximately 2400 sq. ft. of the space that they are leasing for seating and will have dining table seating and bar seating for approx 50 patrons. They are not seeking a liquor license at this time, and Smoke will operate as BYOB. Per the zoning code, Smoke does not need to provide any parking space but they will have two available for employee parking. Smoke will be non-smoking and they are excited to offer a menu that is accessible for Lawrenceville residents and visitors. Attendees at the meeting did raise concerns about parking and the Lawrenceville Corporation provided a summary of their work on parking projects in the community.
LU and LC provided a letter of support for the special exception that was sought by Smoke in front of the Zoning Board on December 5, 2013. Notes from the meeting are available upon request.
