London is one of the world’s foodie meccas, where people of all ages and cultures come to explore the sights, the things to do, and of course, the cuisine.
As a global city there’s no dish you can’t find in London, but amongst the exotic and the exquisite, it’s always hard to go past a classic premium steakhouse.
And it’s not hard to find a good steakhouse in London – the question is in finding the best steakhouse in London.
Here are our picks for the top five.
1) CUT at 45 Park Lane
CUT at 45 Park Lane is well regarded as one of the city’s best fine dining establishments. It is, at its heart, an American-style steak restaurant tucked inside an upscale hotel.
With locally sourced ingredients, a famous pan-roast lobster dish, and a wide range of Wagyu beef sourced from Australia, Japan, and the UK, this eatery has carved a name for itself on the dining scene.
The must-try dish on the menu at CUT is the Tasting of New York Sirloin, a total of 11 ounces of premium steak across three cuts in one dish – Japanese Wagyu, Australian Wagyu, and USDA Prime Black Angus.
2) Miller & Carter
Miller & Carter is a dedicated steakhouse that prides itself on working with a select few suppliers to ensure exceptional quality beef.
Their cuts are from British and Irish farms, and have all been aged for a minimum of 30 days. The eatery uses both wet and dry techniques for ageing to achieve flavour and succulence in every bite.
The steak to try at Miller & Carter is the 28oz Cote de Boeuf, a ribeye made to share and served on the bone for maximum flavour.
3) Berners Tavern
Unlike the name suggests, this upscale restaurant is a far cry from a classic British pub. Elegantly appointed and beautifully kept, Berners Tavern is all about historic charm, British cuisine, and exceptional fare.
There are premium versions of classic ‘tavern’ type meals, from a slow-cooked lamb shoulder to an exceptional Cornish Cod, but the true star of the menu is the grass-fed Scottish steak.
Hailing from the estimable Buccleuch Estate and chargrilled to perfection in house, the steaks are what makes Berners Tavern a show stopper.
4) Steak & Company
Steak & Company is a beloved London steakhouse, which offers a focus on farm-to-fork ingredients and the highest quality cuts from the countryside. The steak itself is Purebred Aberdeen Angus, but comes from South America, where it is raised on large ranches for unrivalled tenderness.
The range of black Angus house steaks have been wet matured for 28 days for something reliably excellent. But it’s the variety of specialty steaks that set this London restaurant apart, with a variety of cuts all aged a minimum of three weeks.
5) Meat & Wine Co
The Meat & Wine Co is a brand new sophisticated restaurant to London, one that has expanded from the steak-loving shores of Australia all the way to the elegant lanes of Mayfair.
This Mayfair steakhouse brings a fusion of Afro-centric dining and premium wines from all over the world. The a la carte menu is a celebration of meat dishes, including a number of grass and grain fed beef cuts.
But when it comes to the best steakhouse in London, the Meat & Wine Co stands a cut above thanks to our exclusive dry aged programme. AGED offers exquisite dry-aged rib eye cuts, each aged for a minimum of a month with our in-house programme.
With AGED, you also have the option of a traditional dry-aged rib-eye, or a dry-aged rib-eye with a flavour infusion. These infusions are possible due to our unique dry-ageing process, and vary according to availability, so you might find anything from truffle-infused dry-aged steak to a honey and thyme creation, depending on the season.
Make your booking at London’s newest steak restaurant, Meat & Wine Co, for a premium steak and an exceptional dining experience.
