Barbecoa opened in early November 2010. Just a stone's throw from St Paul's Cathedral, it has been described in reviews as a place where customers can revert back to their primitive eating instincts by eating meat cooked on an open fire and in a group setting.
Yes, the seating areas are reminiscent of the days when our primitive ancestors would gather around the fire pit to eat the catch of the day. And, yes, the meat is cooked over a wood-fired oven, a Robata grill, a burn pit, not to mention a Texas smoker and Indian tandoors.
Nevertheless, there the resemblance ends.
Yes, dream on! Outside my price range too - but daughter's graduation treat (paid for by my son and ex-husband!) :)
Looks wonderful! Outside my price range, but I can dream right?
I so agree with you! He's very easy to understand and I like his attitude to food - it's very down to earth! My kinda cook! Thanks for your nice comments :)
I would certainly go to Jamie's place :) He's my favorite cook, especialy the 30-minute recipes I used to watch on tv. Easy and fast to cook dishes and simple ingredients combined for delicious food! Great article, Kathleen.
Hi kimbesa - Yes, I like him very much even though I know he also annoys a lot of people! He's got another restaurant (maybe more than one) in London which aims to 'give young people who've often faced enormous challenges in their lives, the opportunity to unlock their true talent, through great training and mentoring.' It's called 15 and it too is a great place to eat. Thanks for the post!
That looks like a fantastic place to eat! I've only seen Jamie's work on TV. The guy has so much energy, it's no surprise that he's created a restaurant that holds its own in a marvelous city like London.
Yes, hope there aren't any food fights between Gordon and Jamie! :) Thanks for your post.
Ha! Gordon Ramsey opening up across the street.
I don't see much seafood in the menu. That platter and the wine -- ah! :)
Thank you for sharing, Kathleen!
