The Joint is the brainchild of Warren Dean and Daniel Fiteni and began its life as a pop-up in August 2012. Their aim was to create simple fast food with a twist using their joint experiences gained from being a chef and a baker.
Their first permanent home was in Brixton Market but for our first Joint experience we would be heading to their recent opening on New Cavendish Street in Marylebone. With tough competition from Patty & Bun and Tommi’s Burger just down the road, they have decided to break the current norm and allow reservations, which has proved a hit with the businesses in the area who pack out the tables during lunchtimes and evenings.
We started the night by sampling some of their London beer offerings, in particular the St. Reatham Lagers, which The Joint have a special partnership with. As with all craft beers you can expect to pay a little extra for the pleasure but it’s definitely worth it when it comes to a St. Reatham as it went down super smooth.
As for the food; it is a simple yet mouth-watering menu. We hit up the BBQ Riblets first, which, to put bluntly, were incredible. The meat fell from the bones with ease and the homemade BBQ marinade was an absolute delight for the tastebuds.
When it comes to the mains, you can choose to either have your meat piled high in a bun or packed tightly in a wrap. We went all in and decided on the Beef Brisket and the 16 Hour Slow Cooked Pulled Pork. Both cooked to perfection, brimming with flavour and instantly covering our hands in meaty juices from the first bite, just what you want from a mid-week comfort craving.
The Joint boasts a relaxed atmosphere and is well worth a visit for perfectly executed street food that’s found it’s feet amongst the bricks and mortar offerings of Central London. Don’t go forgetting the craft beer offerings too if you’re a true brew head!
