Pitt Cue Co., the street-food trailer turned restaurant on Newburgh Street, is set to host a one-off Highland Beef Night on Sunday 9th March. For one night only, the restaurant will serve a nose to tail menu of beef dishes, from a pair of Highland cows sourced a year ago from Farmer Derek Broad in Cornwall.
Having sourced the cows from a neighbouring farm outside Launceston last year, the kitchen team have been busy developing a special menu for the event whilst the cows will have spent two months dry-ageing. To make the most of each cut the restaurant will dish up snacks, including Beef Scrumpet (£5), Beef and Bone Marrow Pasty (£6), and Rib of Beef, (see specials board for details) or 300g Sirloin steak (£18.50) as mains. The beefed-up menu will also include sides such as Grilled Leeks and Stichelton (£4) and Watercress, Radicchio and Anchovy salad (£4).
The Highland Beef Night on Sunday 9th March will run on a first-come first-served basis from 6pm.
Founded by Tom Adams and his business partner, bourbon expert Jamie Berger, Pitt Cue Co. began life as a trailer on the Southbank in the summer of 2011, before the pair went on to open a permanent restaurant in Soho in January 2012. Tom and Jamie work together to create an ever-changing menu and drinks list, incorporating Southern American BBQ with the quality of British produce.
Last year saw the successful release of the first Pitt Cue Co. cook book, showing readers how to make some of the restaurant’s signature dishes including pulled pork, crispy pickled shiitake and sticky bourbon & cola pudding at home.
