market. Josh worked at Ottolenghi, Galvin Bistrot de Luxe and Zest
before opening Berber&Q in 2015.
"Josh Katz cooks in Technicolor. [There is an] interplay of smoke
and cumin and paprika; of sugar syrups and rose and pomegranate; of
great cuts of meat, and sturdy vegetables surrendering themselves
to the fire." -- Jay Rayner * The Guardian *
"The tray I consumed of smoked short-rib with date glaze, cauliflower shawarma, and beets with whipped feta was so delicious, I woke up the next day considering a house move." -- Grace Dent * The Evening Standard *
"We were particularly taken with the 'cauliflower shawarma': served whole, halved or quartered as if it were some particularly hardcore cut of offal, bathed in meaty exhalations from the grill, charred to a nutty crispness, suffused somehow with rosewater, slathered with tahini and strewn with pine nuts and [...] pomegranate seeds." -- Keith Miller * The Telegraph *
"The cool factor and quality of Berber & Q still marks it out from the crowds." -- Guy Dimond * Time Out *
