REVIEW: London Steakhouse Co., City

REVIEW: London Steakhouse Co., City

WHAT? Marco Pierre White’s homage to London’s glory days, all classic British dishes, white tablecloths and smart – if a little outdated – decor.

Attentive service, stand-out steaks and extremely good (if expensive) wine make this a great place to have up your sleeve when entertaining clients. While the enfant terrible of the UK restaurant scene might not be doing the cooking, this is one of only two restaurants in the capital he co-owns.

For starters, we tried a plate of perfectly fresh grilled Scottish langoustines with garlic butter & fresh lemon (£12.75) and a seasonal plate of delicious beetroot and mixed vegetables. This place is definitely posh, and we like it.

The A La Carte menu boasts three fish mainboards (roasted salmon fillet with parmesan risotto & lobster bisque looked particularly great), but this is the place to order meat, and plenty of it.

A 10oz Rump comes in at £24.75, and at the other end of the scale, a 24oz Boston Chop will set you back £54.00. We went for a juicy 12oz Sirloin sirloin served on the bone, cooked medium-rare as requested and served with whipped potatoes and creamed spinach.

Steaks come with a choice of Café de Paris butter, peppercorn or béarnaise sauce, which pair beautifully with any of the copious side dish options (the panzanella salad a must for the more health-conscious). It’s worth noting that there’s a vegetarian special of the day, too, coming in at a reasonable £16.50.

WHERE? Perfectly placed for the red-blooded city slicker you’d expect to find in an upscale place like this, you’ll find London Steakhouse Co. within stumbling distance from Liverpool Street’s towering metropolis. A little on the pricey side, this is perfect for a special meal (but if someone else is paying, book immediately).

STAND-OUT DISH: The meat, the meat, definitely get a thwacking great piece of meat.
