Time Out have just published their annual best eats in town list – and tucked away in there is the 5 best steak joints in town. A couple familiar with all of us – but also one or two newbies that should be checked out – if you have please post a review here.
No.1 Gaucho Picadilly
25 Swallow Street (Picadilly Circus tube)
020 7 734 1076
Look out for a cut named ‘churrasco de lomo’ – a fillet that is cut open and turned out – the better to soak up its olive oil and garlic marinade.
157 Commercial Street
020 7 247 7932 (Liverpool Street tube)
Meat here is fresh from the Ginger Pig in Borough Market.
No.3 Notting Hill Grill
123a Clarendon Road
020 7 229 1500 (Holland Park tube)
Good steaks, but owned by Worral-Thompson……is it worth it?
No.4 Santa Maria del Buen Ayre
50 Broadway Market
020 7 275 9900 (London Fields rail)
Go for the mixed grill – Argentianian style and a bottle of the Malbec.
No.5 Top Floor at Smiths
Smiths of Smithfield
67-77 Charterhouse Street
020 7 251 7950 (Farringdon tube)
A touch on the expensive side for a normal Meat Club night, but very good. All rare breeds and steaks billed as ‘fine meats’.
