Pitt Cue & Co's American Style BBQ
Well, I’m back in London and determined to tuck in to the many new restaurants that are popping up all over this city. Olympic fever has taken hold but in an odd turn of events the center of town feels really empty. Scared off by months of warnings by the city planners and transport authorities, tourists who might come for a weekend of theatre, sightseeing and shopping have stayed away. Businesses are complaining about the decline in their foot traffic, but I see this as an opportunity to perhaps get a table at that normally sought after restaurant.
It’s tucked away behind London’s famous pedestrian mall, Carnaby Street, near Oxford Circus. I was at the door waiting for it to open at noon as were other small groups….of men. All men! The promise of slabs of meat, and lots of it, seems to draw a very manly bunch. While Pitt Cue does offer some greens, that’s just not why you come here.
