Pitt Cue Co.

There is one place in London that stands out as our ultimate favourite, and so it befits our first post on this blog: Pitt Cue Co. Located on Newburgh St, behind Carnaby St. It only seats about thirty and has a no reservations policy (on their website, they claim they “aren’t trying to be cool,” but they are cool, really painfully cool). It gets swamped at lunch so we always go early at 12 or later at 2:30 to get seated, and it makes the ideal hangover food. Southern Barbecque, all meat smoked by the restaurant, and a huge list of rye and bourbon cocktails to wash them down, as well as rare root beer. We have a hard time branching out from our regular order: a pulled pork bun meal, complete with homemade vinegar slaw and pickles, and the immaculate bone marrow mash that literally melts in the mouth. At under a tenner, this is a seriously good value meal.

It is tiny upstairs by the bar, and not much bigger downstairs, yet this lends an air of occasion to eating at PCC – as if you are one chosen few, sat amidst the occasional tourist and dedicated foodies from all over London who patiently wait for a space.
