SquareMeal Review of Q Grill

The Q in the name references BBQ, and this eatery from ex-Caprice Holdings CEO Des McDonald celebrates all things smoky and grilled. Bare wood, dishevelled metal, hanging cleavers and industrial lighting contribute to a carefully created, shabby-chic design that feels ripe for a roll-out. Salads and raw dishes provide the warm-up acts on a menu that has Deep South soul, but is willing to travel: steak tartare wins points for its judicious use of spice and capers, while tuna crudo with avocado and pomegranate is a textural funfair. To follow, a sumptuously moist pit-roast half-chicken hits the spot – although the same can’t be said of the signature rack of ribs, which was dry and devoid of stickiness when we visited. Still, the bourbon-infused pecan pie makes amends, while the drinks list runs to diverse cocktails and locally brewed Camden Town beers. In short, a fun prospect that could be a class act with a little more polish.

This is a restaurant for meat lovers. All of the meat we ordered was great (smoked cheese burger, fried chicken, wings and ribs), but the sides were extra with most dishes and the price does creep up on you! I don't think we had a single piece of greenery on any of the 4 plates (does coleslaw count?!) and even the burger didn't contain any trace of salad, so I would make sure that I ordered at least a side salad next time. The service and atmosphere could not be faulted and I would definitely visit again.
