Spread over two floors, this Kentish Town restaurant and bar serves up authentic southern-American cuisine, accompanied by plenty of aesthetic nods to the US, too. Exposed brick walls are adorned with neon signs for Coca-Cola, plus a few stars and stripes. Formally a police station, the basement bar features booths which were once used as cells.
Fried chicken is flavoured with lemon salt and tabasco honey, and features on a menu alongside eight-hour slow-roast beef and mac ’n’ cheese. Weekend brunch should help make this a good hangover destination – expect buttermilk pancakes served with seasonal berries and maple syrup, or Joe’s breakfast, where streaky bacon, sausage and eggs are served on sourdough bread.
Keep an eye out for weekend happy hours, too.
