The Queensbury Kitchen (London)
It's friendly and social as it's one of those food-sharing restaurants. Not the ones serving dainty little small plates but ones with large platters and wooden planks of meat and sliders placed in the middle of long communal tables. It's what you want for that kind of food, where you're not afraid to reach over the table and eat with your hands and shamelessly lick your fingers. For rich fatty ribs - which are actually worth the trip to Willesden Green - it came big and bold in two racks, and were sweet and smokey and falling apart at the touch of your fork; for the fried chicken wings - spicy, juicy, crispy and so good that you're there picking off the remaining fried crumbs scattered at the bottom; for the sliders - both meat and vegetarian, served in cute traditional American burger buns.
I hear that brunch there is good - I managed to sample some of the blueberry French toast and they were almost like flans. If you're around Willesden Green, The Queensbury Kitchen will be a treat. If not, venturing all the way out to the area can help you explore more of London and hey, the ribs and the rest of the aforementioned dishes are worth ordering.
