Shoreditch, Clerkenwell



American | Shoreditch, Clerkenwell

Originally a staple of Street Feast, this is Smokestak's first permanent home. 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).

"...even after all this time, a new restaurant operating right at the top of its game still has the power to leave this jaded food blogger tripping happily away and grinning ear to ear. So thanks, Smokestak. I owe you one. " READ REVIEW

"I want to underline that Smokestak has rocked up as a symbol of London’s attitude to culinary risk-taking. It is different, incongruous and soon to be copied to high heaven." READ REVIEW

"...I strongly recommend trying the piece of brisket at £8. Its open texture, deep flavour and soft-as-silk potential is maximised by low and slow-cooking, basting and respectful resting in oiled butchers’ paper. Three thick, almost impossibly succulent, treacly-edged slices are served with punchy ketchup and, of course, the cheery chillies that have a might of their own." READ REVIEW
