Set to open in late February, Q Grill is the latest example of London’s love affair with all things grilled, smoked and American. The craze for down-home barbecue style cuisine seems set to continue into 2014 and Q Grill looks like a very good reason not to put down the BBQ sauce just yet.
Q Grill arrives in Camden (Chalk Farm Road to be precise) courtesy of esteemed restaurateur Des McDonald (formerly of Caprice Holdings), hot on the heels of his successful Fish and Chips venture in Islington last year. He describes his foray into the well-populated BBQ dining scene as coupling the ‘sweet tasting BBQ flavours of a traditional Memphis smokehouse with our own unique approach’.
Heading up the kitchen will be Phil Eagle, a fellow alumnus of Le Caprice whose CV also boasts a spell as Head Chef at Hix. He will oversee a menu that won’t be short of finger lickin’ meaty offerings like Josper grilled steaks and burgers, pecan roasted chicken, kielbas a hot dogs and pulled pork sandwiches. This carnival for carnivores will be offset by ‘raw bar’ classics like scallop ceviche and citrus sea bass. Expect the drinks list to continue the down-home southern stylings with a wide selection of American bourbons and whiskeys.
Q Grill heads an exciting list of London restaurant openings over the next couple months as the capital’s dining scene kicks off 2014 in fine style.
