Reflecting Jamie Oliver’s dedication to meticulous sourcing from farmers and producers who share his food ethos, the meat at Barbecoa all comes from free-range, grass-fed animals. Guests were entertained by Ross Allen on the decks and treated to wines from the restaurant’s 2,500-bottle strong collection.

Berry Bros. & Rudd house champagne, along with the new restaurant’s signature Berkeley Blazer were served, accompanied by a large selection of Barbecoa’s signature dishes, including scallop ceviche and pit beef. All available from the new menu.

Barbecoa opens its doors to the public on 13 February, 196 Piccadilly
