Fancy a slice of America?

Written by on 15th February 2013

Lincoln’s newest restaurant, Ribs n Bibs, is offering the city something quite different. The American smokehouse restaurant opens this week and to find out more I spoke to the manager Adam Wallhead.

Also in the programme a number of the restaurants and cafes I have spoken to as part of this show are based in Burton Road. So I find out more about the food community in that part of Lincoln.

You can listen to this week’s show via the player below:

Ribs n Bibs is hoping to bring American food, flavours and the dining experience to Lincoln. The restaurant, which opens on Valentine’s Day, is on the Strait and the people that run it think this is exactly what Lincoln needs.

They are already fully booked for opening night and the next few days through the power of Twitter and Facebook. So to find out more about the restaurant I met up with Adam Wallhead, the manager, while preparations for opening night were still taking place.

You can listen to the interview with Adam in full right here:


Coming up in the next few weeks on Food for Thought I visit the Ellis Windmill to find out flour is made and also Sam Pidoux and I have arranged an interview with the celebrity chef James Martin. To hear all this then you need to make sure you listen to Food for Thought on Siren FM on Wednesdays at 2pm.
