New barbecue restaurant adds smoky note to Hertel Ave. lineup

A catering couple is taking their barbecue cuisine to restaurant form on Hertel Avenue, opening Billamy's BBQ.

Bill and Amy Wesolowski, who have had a catering operation since 2008, hope to open their eatery at 1260 Hertel Ave., between Crestwood and Commonwealth avenues, this Saturday.

The menu at Billamy's BBQ will include everything from steak and ribs to pulled pork, pulled chicken and grilled portabellos, Bill Wesolowski said after today's city Planning Board meeting.

The Wesolowskis are looking for permission from the city to have an outdoor patio as part of their restaurant. A public hearing on that proposal will be held at 2 p.m. today at the Common Council's Legislation Committee meeting. The full Council is expected to vote on the measure next Tuesday.

The Planning Board approved the patio plans this morning.

The restaurant will seat 28, Bill Wesolowski said, with the patio seating 15 to 20 people.
