Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

2018 saw the closure of Steak Brasserie (although the space is still available for events and groups) and a bit of a re-focus at Steak Restaurant. Rest assured though, the theatricality of the venue hasn’t diminished one little bit: it’s dramatic and plush, with clever dividers between tables, slick staff and plenty of candles setting the scene for romantic liaisons. Their new tasting menu is a brilliant innovation, perfect for those who think going out for a simple steak is (whisper it) just a little bit predictable or who find ploughing through a huge fillet tough going. Six wee courses let the kitchen bust out their best moves (haggis bon bons are particularly successful), while a penultimate course of a 180g rump steak with all the trimmings means no one feels short-changed. It’s great value too and the whole thing works a treat. For those who prefer to keep things traditional there is the usual array of high-end cuts plus a more modestly priced range of butcher’s cuts: all come from Donald Russell, so it’s hard to think that sacrificing on price will sacrifice on quality, especially with chefs like this who so clearly know their stuff.
