Pitt Cue Reloaded

A place I really enjoyed last year was Pitt Cue Co. With all the pop up madness, food trucks, night markets, etc, Pitt Cue was one of my favourite and probably one of the only places I ate more than once as I love to try different things so always going to different place to eat. 4 weeks in their new location around Soho. The place is small and cozy, 30 seats in total, less than a dozen stools to sit upstairs, and some tables downstairs, simple decor, liked the lamps upstairs, and what is most important they make you feel like home, is like arriving to a friend’s house, Jamie will make everything to be sure you’re ok, even if that means you need pickle back shots. 

The place
Got to the place for lunch, saw the menu for a couple minutes, discuss with Jamie about my reading of Michael Lewis’ Boomerang, then finally decided a to have a Pitt Cue whatever draught some scratching, the beef ribs with braised sprout tops, and a pulled pork bun.
The bar inside
The beer was nice and they go excellent with the scratching, probably not as strong as the pickle back but it was lunch so I prefer to keep it light. The ribs were amazing, the smoky flavour was spot on, they were tender, pretty good, the sprouts where nice, a salty and little bit sour taste that played well with the ribs. The pulled pork bun came with slaw, pickles, and a special sauce it was delicious, good balance with the right touch of sweetness, a hint of spicy, and great juices from the pork, a delight.

Food truck still running and now with a permanent home nearby Carnaby Street , great barbecue, nice cocktails, excellent service, chef Tom Adams and business partner front of the house Jamie Berger will keep high the London barbeque bar for sure. 

Lamp attack
The first thing that comes to my mind with Pitt Cue apart from the barbecue is the pickle back shot that reminds me the Seinfeld episode “The Red Dot” 

Kramer: That is damn good scotch. I could do a commercial for this stuff. Mmmmm! Boy that Hennigans goes down smooth. And afterwards you don't even smell. That's right folks. I just had three shots of Hennigans and I don't smell. Imagine, you can walk around drunk all day. That's Hennigans, the no-smell, no tell scotch.
