Summer BBQ Time

Take advantage of these warm summer nights by throwing your family and friends a BBQ! Right here in Lincoln Center, we’ve got all the essentials you need to host the perfect backyard party.


Fish from Bud’s Seafood Grille & Seasoning from Fat City Brew & BBQ Supply

Mix up your summer BBQ with some fresh fish from Bud’s Seafood! Your guests will be pleasantly surprised to attend a BBQ that switches it up from serving just burgers. Bud’s has some delicious fresh trout right now. Call and order yours soon! Season the fish with Fat City’s Rob’s Smokin’ Lemon Pepper rub and fresh lemon, then throw on the grill.


Veggie Skewers

Colorful and tasty veggie skewers are a great addition to your BBQ meal. You really can’t go wrong with veggie skewers, so be as creative as you’d like with yours! But if you need some inspiration, I listed some veggies below that I would recommend using. Find the veggies and skewer sticks at Podesto’s and try the Flamethrower’s BBQ & Chili Co. Sweet seasoning from Fat City to give them some zesty flavors.

  • Zucchini
  • Eggplant
  • Peppers (all colors)
  • Red Onion



Heirloom Tomato Salad

The PERFECT summer salad! The sweetness of an heirloom tomato, combined with some fresh mozzarella, basil and a little olive oil and vinegar, and you’ve got the easiest and most delicious salad to serve your BBQ guests.

  • Fresh Mozarella: can be found at Podesto’s
  • Basil: can be found at Podesto’s
  • Heirloom Tomatoes: can be found in the Market of Market Tavern or at Podesto’s



Summer Cocktail – over 21 only :)

Keep your guests’ thirst quenched with this tasty and fun cocktail, a Nectarine Mojito. Mix up a regular mojito but muddle some ripe nectarines with the mint for a fruity twist. Recipe is courtesy of everyone’s favorite bartender, Arezou of Market Tavern. Remember, no Summer BBQ is complete without a refreshing cocktail to go with it.



And for those guests who are not of the drinking age, you can make them still feel special with this tasty fresh strawberry lemonade. Find the recipe here.



A Sweet Dessert

Keep the BBQ hot because dessert will be prepared on the grill tonight! Try grilled peaches with vanilla bean ice cream for dessert. The recipe is simple: cut the peaches in half, remove the pit, brush with oil and place on grill for about 10-15 minutes. Place warm peaches on individual plates with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and voila! Sprinkle a little cinnamon and sugar on the top for extra sweetness! Pick out some juicy peaches at Podesto’s or Market Tavern.
