This is the first of Neil Rankin's Temper restaurants, taking over a huge basement spot in Soho. The room is dominated by a central kitchen where all the smoking happens. From that you can expect tacos, meat piled onto freshly baked flatbread and a lot of mezcal.
Smokestak
Shoreditch, Clerkenwell

It's from David Carter, who originally worked in Claridges and Roka and who now is now responsible for some of the best smoked meats in town. You'll have to try the brisket, for sure, but it's worth working through the entire menu. Expect to be smelling rather smokey for a while after, though (unless you sit on their terrace).
