Gabriel’s Fire serves hospitality alongside barbecue

Monty and his brother Gabe can back that up. The Slimp brothers moved their Ballard-based restaurant, Gabriel’s Fire, to Mountlake Terrace last month. The restaurant is located at 5803 244th St. SW.

Gabriel's Fire smokes out new possibilities at BBQ spot

Barbecue joints fall into that small subset of restaurants where a divey look can be seen as an attraction instead of a warning sign. However, the Mountlake Terrace address of Gabriel's Fire had gone beyond that point, spending years shifting from one failing restaurant to another, until even a Yelper commented that the building seemed doomed. I barely noticed when a new sign went up a few months back. Then food writer Sonja Groset gave a gustatory sigh of pleasure after a dinner stop there, and I realized that Gabriel's Fire is the same place that had drawn fans for years in a Ballard storefront, including a cheer from meat maven Leslie Kelly. Instead of just driving by the next time, I drove off with a sublime brisket sandwich, another filled with pulled pork, and a couple sides (a bit smaller than I expected, at $3.50 for 6 ounces of mac 'n cheese, but good). Later, Monty Slimp, who owns the place with brother Gabe, filled me in on their northward move.
