The Lost Love Speakeasy features a sizzling 1920’s summer menu by star barbecue chef Neil Rankin.

Diverting and delightfulfundamental prowess, underpinned by French classical training, let loose on wood fires and smoking coals.

FAY MASCHLER, Evening Standard

Neil Rankin is London’s leading open fire cook. He is Executive Chef of the wildly popular Temper Restaurants Group, a series of barbecue joints filled with smoking open fire pits, mouthwatering tacos and steak, heady mezcal and fine wines.

Neil honed his skills in many of London’s leading Michelin starred kitchens. He then rose to the top of the open fire scene as Head Chef at both Pitt Cue Co. and The Smokehouse in Islington.

Neil has since been responsible for the most tantalising flame-kissed food in town, winning Observer Food Awards, a place on BBC’s Great British Menu and publishing his first book with Random House.

Neil’s summer menu for The Lost Love is a journey from the heartlands of the Deep South to the gilt dining rooms of New York. Scroll down for the dishes and our new summer cocktail edit

“I don’t know what the hell he was doing to the pulled pork but it involved some genre of voodoo…Memories of Poussin with a fiery pepper kick, plates of chicken hash, roast potatoes that hang around orgasmically with toes curled in chicken fat.”
