Q Grill Review

Book a table at Q Grill

Top 10 things you need to know about Q Grill restaurant:

1) Aside from unkempt, hirsute appearances, and a liking for moonshine consumption, the denizens of fag-ash Camden, North London share little similarities with the farmland hicks of Tennessee, USA. Yet, London’s penchant for grilled meats still burgeons, so welcome to Americana, y’all!

2) The old McDonald who made this farm, E-I-E-I-O, is Des McDonald, former CEO of Caprice Group (The Ivy, Balthazar, J Sheekey etc) and owner of the Fish & Chip Shop in Angel.

3) As I enter the restaurant, my perceptions of reality are confused. The lure of diesel fuel, guitar riffs, raw sweat, blood, and beer hangs heavy in the restaurant. I blame my obsession with TV’s latest American must-watch, True Detective, starring Woody Harrelson and Matthew Mahogany (well, he is).

4) The Q in Q Grill stands for barbecue, yup, and the open plan kitchen enables a haze of josper smoked meats to waft across the barn.

5) Chances are, those who come here expecting flavours that kick like a mule will find the watery Wit Sour cocktail a tad limp. There is much creativity elsewhere on the drinks menu, though; the Rye & Ink, for example, is a pre-dinner cocktail made using after-dinner ingredients (Bulleit bourbon and Camden Ink porter).

6) A smoked salmon starter is a medley of colours and flavours and the medium of pomegranate provides it an edge. And shaved vegetables, what a discovery! Shave, don’t chop, a vegetable and chewing suddenly becomes less ugly.

7) Going the whole hog and ordering the full set of ribs is advisable, as well as puntastic. Maybe order the half portion as a side, just in case. Then get your grunt on.

8) Oh faultless meat, I succumb to your powers. Your flat iron exterior so dark and enchanting. Your fleshy interior so pink and tender.

9) The readiness to become a chain restaurant is apparent in Q Grill’s oeuvre. It is large enough, busy enough, and furnished with just the right amount of angelpoise lamps, leather booths, dusty antiques and surfaces of steel and wood to warrant a place at the Wahaca or Bill’s School of Mass Restaurant Success.

10) And yet, a second Q Grill restaurant in London would tarnish the appeal of the first. It should remain a singular restaurant, in this singular location, close to Camden Markets, The Roundhouse, and the barnyards of old Tennessee.
