Hawksmoor

Vegetarians look away!

Last Friday I tried a new good address, Hawksmoor, a british steakhouse in Sevel Dials in Covent Garden and it was excellent. This is the place to go for people who fancy a high quality steak and it managed to get on my top 3 list for steak places in London. What can I say, the image speaks for itself and this lovely cut was only for 2 people.

The entrance of this place is so discrete, I walked down the stairs and started off with a drink in the bar, when we were told the table was ready we were guided into a big hall, completely fully seated, felt like I was given access to the underground secret society for meat lovers. The atmosphere and wine list excellent, my only complain though was that the service was a bit slow, took us 3 hours from start to finish, but hey, perhaps they just wanted their guest to enjoy the meal in piece, the meat codex.

As for all great addresses in London a booking is necessary, even weeks beforehand, in this place I would recommend you to even prebook your preferred cut of meat as well, otherwise you’re risking they’ve run out of it.
