Saison Hospitality unveiled Saison Smokehouse in April of 2020. A real wood barbecue joint inspired by off-the-beaten-path places from around the world. As restaurants across the country closed for dine-in service due to the novel coronavirus, Saison Smokehouse aimed to provide comfort in the form of a shared barbecue experience for guests at home.
The true origin of barbecue is one that will probably never be solved, and one whose history dates back to prehistoric times when cavemen were clubbing wooly mammoths. Every culture around the world has made a significant contribution to what we now call “barbecue.” In this particular version at Saison Smokehouse, the food is innovative, but comfort-driven and designed to share. It is best eaten with a plethora of side dishes, condiments, and beverages—all meant to be enjoyed together.
