That's right, folks. This week in Dish we finally hit the metal and review the rib and 'cue joint from Iron Maiden drummer Nicko McBrain, Rock 'N' Roll Ribs. We first took a look at the now mega-popular rib shack when we interviewed owners McBrain and Rick "Moby" Baum back in October. Then, we gave our first impressions just a few weeks after opening, when rock 'N' Roll Ribs was slammed with Maiden and BBQ fans alike. Now, we're unveiling a full review on the place. A quick excerpt after the jump, plus more pictures from the restaurant.
Rock ΄N' Roll Ribs feels just about as close to a backyard barbecue as
you can get in a restaurant. The food isn't exactly Memphis- or
Texas-style ΄cue; rather, it tastes like what you might whip up with
some friends huddled around a Webber grill. In fact, the very idea for
the place was born of such gatherings, cooked up over cold Coronas by
guitarist and food-industry vet Rick "Moby" Baum and his close friend,
Iron Maiden drummer Nicko McBrain. As McBrain tells it - in his thick
English accent - starting a restaurant together had been a dream since
Baum first shared his rib recipe with the rocker at one of their back
garden parties. A self-admitted "foodie" who's eaten his way around the
world some dozen times over, McBrain says it was these ribs that stuck
with him the most.
