Ten restaurants that cook on open fire
Wood fires and open flames are quite literally the hottest new dining trend. Hit it up with these restaurants
If any more evidence is required that open fire cooking is absolutely where it is at right now, check out Nuala. Its' executive chef, Niall Ferguson, was formerly at Chiltern Firehouse. Nuala is located just off the Old Street roundabout, and it sports a curved concrete bar and leather seating arranged around the brick-lined open fireplace.
Definitively sourced ingredients are the holy grail here: the menu features beef exclusively from Torloisk Highland cows and fish from Cornish day boats. Dishes include: bone marrow doughnuts; flamed clams in cider; king crab with Pernod butter; rotisserie goose with barley pancakes.
An unusual savoury meets sweet dessert is grilled Delice pumpkin with ricotta, dates and almonds.
The bar downstairs pays homage to Irish pub heritage, with a large mahogany bar and pictures from the original Guinness archives in Dublin. Head barman, Spencer Large, formerly of Barbecoa, has compiled a menu of whiskey inclined cocktails and punches, that certainly warm the soul.
Price: £70.00 meal for two with drinks
