STK is one of those restaurants that attracts the party crowd. With DJ’s playing live in the restaurant, the scene is always set for a fun evening of dining. STK brings a touch of New York style into central London, and we’re big fans, having experienced numerous splendid meals over the years.

When we arrived this time we were greeted warmly, as always, and shown to our table. We decided to order two glasses of Veuve Clicquot Brut Rosé as an aperitif, which we savoured as we browsed the menu and made our food choices.

To start, I chose the curly lettuce served with watercress and fig dressing, poached pear, blue cheese and maple candied walnuts. This classic combination of flavours was brought bang up to date with the sweetness of the candied walnut and the addition of fig; it was simply delicious. My partner chose the roasted octopus served with olives, sun-dried tomatoes and chickpeas. The octopus was cooked to perfection and wonderfully seasoned.

“You can always rely on STK for impressive steak which is cooked to perfection.”

For our main courses, of course we chose steak. I opted for the 300g USDA grain fed fillet was was served with my choice of garlic butter and a perfectly placed duck egg. My partner chose the 250g USGA grain fed New York strip along with an incredibly satisfying peppercorn sauce. We also added sides of parmesan truffle chips, green beans with smoky shallots and creamed spinach.

For dessert, I chose the salty caramel crème brulee served with a gingerbread biscuit. This dish was everything a dessert should be; sweet, sticky and overly indulgent with a hint of spice. My partner chose the apple and maple cake which was served with calvados cream, cinnamon ice cream and maple liquor, and was equally as impressive.

To accompany our meal, we chose a bottle of the 2015, Trapiche Estacion 1883 Malbec, Mendoza, Argentina, which offered flavours of dark fruits and floral notes. It provided the perfect accompaniment to what was already a wonderful meal.

We were extremely impressed once again with our visit. You can always rely on STK for impressive steak which is cooked to perfection, with a fantastic atmosphere to boot. This restaurant comes highly recommended by us as one to try when you’re in London. We will certainly be returning.
