Barbecue street food concept, Smokestak, is to open its first permanent site, in Shoreditch, next month.

The group, led by David Carter, has secured a site in Sclater Street for a 75-covre restaurant launching in October.

The brand was born in 2014 with stints at Street Feast and has quickly become a star of the street food scene.

This month it was shortlisted for the best street food concept in Harden’s London Restaurant Awards.
