Boneyard is the new concept from Robert Newman - founder of Beach Blanket Babylon and West Thirty Six - and is as carefully thought out as his previous eateries. Push through a pair of heavy black doors and step inside a buzzing diner, complete with high wooden tables and a wall lined with alcoholic offerings, reminiscent of a stop off on Route 66. The restaurant is run in a playful, cheery manner: order at the till and wait with your ticket until the food is announced by the welcoming and upbeat staff.
Yet there's nothing casual about the food when it comes: rich, succulent and bursting with flavour - this is meat that will knock you off your bench. We recommend the buttermilk fried chicken that comes with the right amount of crunch; the melt in your mouth ribs and juicy Boneyard burger - all pay serious homage to North American cuisine. To accompany your meat are a range of sides, from crunchy tater tots to green salads. If you have any room, the milkshakes make for a decadent but delicious sweet treat.
This is a restaurant which caters to a particular niche but does so incredibly well. If you're on the hunt for some stand out meat in a laid back atmosphere which doesn't cost the earth, well, Boneyard is a must.
