temper Covent Garden Smoked meat aficionado Neil Rankin started out at Pitt Cue Co and Smokehouse but now he has his own mini chain of restaurants and he's written a book on the art of cooking meat. This third branch of temper in Covent Garden follows temper Soho (opened in 2016) and temper City (2017) and with it Neil has further cemented his reputation as one of the UK's leading barbecue chefs. The menu here focuses on cured meat pizza cooked in a wood-fired oven, ragu, vermouth and top-quality wines. Choose from t wo types of pizza: the rectangular 'Detroit pizza' with a focaccia-esque bottom and cheese crust; or the 'Bar pizza' which has an almost cracker-like thin base. Originally served at the counter, to be enjoyed with a drink or two, Neil has turned this idea on its head with top end toppings like the Wagyu Salami and the White Clam. Hearty ragus made using game, goat and pork are served with fresh bread or gnocchi in a dining room dominated by the central counter kitchen - a feature of all three temper restaurants - with a large wood-fired oven at one end and a bar at the other.
