Described as "Memphis, Tennessee meets farm-to-grill meets Camden Town", Q Grill is the latest American style cookhouse to challenge Stables Market as Camden's food mecca. On the menu, you'll find traditional Americana-style BBQ dishes like pit-roasted chicken (£11.50/£22.00), the Q Burger with smoked cheddar and avocado (£13), and flat iron steak (£12.50), with a few surprises like leaf-baked sea bass with lime caviar (£19.75), and hot smoked salmon (£8.50) thrown in to spice things up. Add in a strong cocktail list (both in quantity and alcohol content) and a vibrant atmosphere, and Q Grill is proving that Camden's no longer a one-horse town in the food stakes.
