Its Soho original was, according to our reporters, â€œthe best BBQ everâ€ and fans â€œdrool at the mere thought of a visitâ€ to the meatilicious venture which has now moved lock and stock to a bigger venue in the City on Devonshire Square. The site on Newburgh Street will reopen as Little Pitt later in 2016.
Harden's survey result
For 25 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 60,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.
Designed “for hearty appetites”, Tom Adams’s American-style BBQ remains a big hit in its “newish, large and glamorous” premises near Liverpool Street (although “everyone in suits at lunchtime doesn’t feel 100% right for this sort of food”). The menu is “unusual but worth grappling with” and excels through “the quality of the ingredients and the subtle simplicity of the cooking, which delivers special results”.
“A meat Mecca and no mistake” – this epic US-style BBQ has “transitioned beautifully” from Soho to its “stunning new home” in Devonshire Square, and its dishes are “off-the-charts good”, if “not for the faint hearted” (“pig’s head scrumpet? Yes please!”). “Service tries hard” – “these guys clearly love their meat, treat it with respect” and “have tremendous knowledge of the breeds of animals and the cuts”. “Excellent bar too”.
Pitt Cue Co Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Itâ€™s rightly famed for its meat offerings but the sides and drinks, in particular the bourbon list, are to write home about as well. The senior staff are fantastic and the informal atmosphere suits the short, quality, menu of â€˜barbecueâ€™ style fare. The more junior staff are keen and polite but lack any sign of the products served. Hard to find better meat grilling/smoking anywhere."
"Great grills, decent wine list, empty restaurant"
"Noisy, Excellent rib of beef served with under-cooked cold vegetable, 'dull' winelist"
