Steak & Cherry
A familiar name on the nightlife strip, with American-Italian food, plenty of drinks, and late opening hours.
Having almost literally risen from the flames, legendary Steak & Cherry re-emerged after a fire in the kitchen in 2011 devastated the old venue – and a few of the neighbours’ flats as well. Where before it was a fairly secrective spot, it’s now more visible in its home across the street and on ground level, with large glass doors leading to a long and smartly attired dining area mixing tables and booths. The American-Italian inspired menu is large, covering nachos, wings, grills, decent burgers, dogs, NY pizzas, pastas and US-style desserts and shakes, while there are plenty of spirits and a few bottled beers on offer from the bar. The food is enjoyable while not setting the world alight (ahem), but what really sells this place is the opening hours – lasting until 1am weekdays, and 4am weekends, catching all manner of post-clubbers, bar workers and night owls out for a bite to eat.
