LDNReview

If you’ve ever attempted to romance someone via tealights and then had to find a seductive way to hold a fire extinguisher, the words ‘fire cult’ might fill you with panic. Rest assured, Acme Fire Cult is very much a relaxed place to be. A ‘live fire concept’ restaurant which is conveniently located in 40FT Brewery—cue pints in the sunshine—this Dalston spot cooks up hefty slabs of meat and whole fish on the grill out on the terrace. But in a plot twist no one saw coming, the best things here are the vegetable dishes. Think smoked potatoes with a smoother than smooth tahini mayo and a fermented squash hummus that is a macadamia-sponsored crunch party. You should know there is some seating inside but the heated and covered terrace is where you want to be. Get involved in as many of the vegetarian small plates as possible, order a negroni if the sun is out, and feel incredibly smug when you leave full of cheesy Marmite flatbread and with your clothes smelling of the ultimate summer scent: barbecue.

Smokestak

If you’re looking for serious meats, Smokestak in Shoreditch is your answer. The Southern barbecue, especially the brisket, is the best in London.
