Blackstrap opened in Winthrop in 2010, helmed by owners Chris Thompson and Kate Economides, alums of East Coast Grill, which closes tomorrow after 30 years. In 2014, Blackstrap underwent a big renovation, which included the addition of a full bar. The restaurant is inspired by a few different Southern regions, with Memphis-style dry rubs for ribs, Texas-style brisket, Kansas City-style baby back ribs, and pulled pork that draws from South Carolina and eastern North Carolina.
