M Threadneedle Street is located on Threadneedle Walk, placing this restaurant in the heart of the city. Martin Williams opened M after spending a decade at Gaucho. Much like Gaucho, M celebrates meat and premium classics. The downstairs dining hall is large, with a host of charming electric blue booths. We experienced one of these charming booths during our visit, providing us with an intimate setting and allowing us to be part of the restaurants scene without it imposing on us. The main features of their menu is the six different steaks procured from six different Countries, including the £149 Kobe from Japan. M Threadneedle is one of the few UK restaurants to have a license to sell this steak, which is a testament to their reputation.

We started our evening with pre-dinner cocktails, I ordered the ‘Lemon and Almond with Herbal Watermelon’. A smooth cocktail with Tanqueray Gin, Amaretto, Salvatore Liquore di Limone, and Watermelon Mousse, sweet but delicious. My partner ordered the ‘Les Fleurs du Mal’, a cocktail mixed with Grey Goose vodka, Benedictine, Yellow Chartreuse, Absinthe, Jasmine Tea, Honey, and Rose Water. Not shy of alcohol, and the Jasmine Tea give this drink a smooth, aromatic tone.

To begin we ordered Foie Gras Terrine with Grapes and Brioche, The Terrine was superb with a good texture and strong flavours. My partner ordered the Salmon with Caviar, served with Cucumbers and Capers. Salmon and caviar is a wonderful combination and this dish can’t be faulted on its presentation or taste.

“M Grill sets the bar high and delivers.”

Moving on to our main course we settled on the 250g USDA Prime Fillet, served with a Black Garlic Aioli Sauce. I also added a Fried Duck Egg, which was most welcome to my plate. A can confirm M’s reputation for incredible steaks is warranted. The seasoning and preparation was perfect, and I had no problems finishing this dish. My partner also sampled a steak dish, ordering a 250g Argentinian Rump Fillet, served with White Miso Butter. The Miso Butter complimented another outstanding dish, and this was equally as enjoyable. We added sides of Triple Cooked M Chips, and Spinach with Garlic, Onion and Lemon, this completed our main event perfectly and we enjoyed every mouthful.

We ended the evening with a couple of desserts. I opted for a White Chocolate Ice Cream with Olive Oil Sponge, Meringue, and Lemon and Cucumber. The sponge was soft and the Ice Cream was rich in flavour. My partner sampled their Waldorf Salad with Stichelton Ice Cream, Apple Terrine and Walnuts, a very interesting dessert and one i would happily order again.

Our chosen wine for the evening was a bottle of 2012, Hess Select Cabernet Sauvignon from North Coast, California. A wine packed with red fruits and spicy notes, very enjoyable and a perfect choice for the evening.

M Grill sets the bar high and delivers, you will not be disappointed.
