Perhaps best known for its pulled pork, ribs and picklebacks, Pitt Cue was launched as a much-queued-at food truck by Tom Adams and Jamie Berger in 2011.
Following backing from Market Halls co-founder Simon Anderson and Hawksmoor chef Richard Turner, Adams and Berger opened a bricks and mortar site on Soho's Newburgh Street in 2012.
Four years later the restaurant relocated to Devonshire Square in The City, specialising in Mangalitza pork dishes alongside bold meat options such as pheasant sausage, lamb neck, and the signature caramel-cooked prime ribs.
Announcing the closure on its Instagram feed, the restaurant said: “It is with great sadness we announce the closure of Pitt Cue.
“We would let to thank our customers, staff and suppliers for their support over the last eight years.
“We are very proud of our role in bringing BBQ to the masses in the UK, and promoting the cause of proper ethical animal husbandry.”
In 2016 Adams also opened farm-to-fork restaurant concept Coombeshead Farm in Cornwall with River Café alum April Bloomfield, where he was able to further promote his ideology towards serving high-quality meats.
