Barbacoa opened a couple days ago and there are now links available for the menu as well as a bunch of other interesting reading. The menu is diverse but does tend to lean in part on American BBQ staples presented in cheffed-up manner. There is also a pretty interesting selection of seafood dishes to choose from. I'll update this post one last time after the UK press delivers a few reviews for us to chew on.
British superchef Jamie Oliver and American BBQ guru Adam Perry Lang are just a few weeks away from opening the doors on their first joint partnership restaurant, Barbacoa, near St. Paul's in London, UK. Jamie has posted a few pictures on Twitter recently and it made me think it would be a good time to share them with you. I interviewed Adam a few months ago and spoke with him about the restaurant concept. I had wrongly assumed that Jamie had tapped Adam to bring American style BBQ to London. Barbacoa is actually going to have a menu that offers live fire cooking styles and techniques from around the globe. According to the Barbacoa website, the restaurant will also have a storefront selling meats butchered in-house as well as house cured meats. Adam said that he and Jamie share the same culinary viewpoint in sourcing high quality ingredients from local, natural or organic producers and then treating those ingredients with attention and care to arrive at a delicious conclusion. I think London has something to be quite excited about when they throw open the doors in a few weeks on Barbacoa.
