East End BBQ restaurant Smokestak is serving a festive sharing menu until the new year (£50pp). A great option for groups, guests can start with a warm spiced malbec, followed by small plates like smoked mackerel pâté on sourdough, chicken liver parfait, and mushrooms on toast with beef fat gravy. Then it’s onto smoked meats like dry-aged beef with chimichurri, beef brisket, and pulled pork with pickled cucumber – all served with honey and thyme roasted parsnips, fennel and citrus salad, and charred greens. If you’ve still got space, there’s an apple tarte tatin with custard for dessert.
