London finally has an American restaurant big enough to represent the ‘Land of the Huge’ as the 500-cover Blues Kitchen is open in Shoreditch. An outpost of the original Camden venture of the same name, the restaurant has twice the capacity of, say, Brasserie Zédel.
The restaurant, open all day, features a Texan BBQ menu including dishes such as fried alligator and pan fried catfish, cooked up by head chef Klodian Drici, formerly of BBQ chain Bodean’s.
On the former site of Bar Music Hall, Blues Kitchen is backed by The Colombo Group, also behind the recently launched Cat & Mutton in London Fields.
Apart from its size, Blues Kitchen will also try to set itself apart from other deep-fried diners with its booze selection. They’re promising a massive collection of bourbons, as well as the terrifying-sounding Snake Venom – a Scottish beer (inevitably) that’s touted as the world’s strongest, at 67.5% ABV.
