“Don't be blue; it isn't rare to find heavenly steak in London so get mooooving!”

Highly acclaimed New York Steakhouse Goodman in Mayfair is known to deliver exceptional meat and has opened a second site in The City making both spots great for mixing business and pleasure. Equally, Hawksmoor serves spectacular steak in a relaxed but refined setting not far from Bishopsgate.

No-frills, Argentine grill Buen Ayre in Hackney serves up Argentinean steak that is often said to be as good as any you’d get in Latin America. Also sourcing its meat, wine and vibe from Argentina is Gaucho Grill where you can also enjoy slick surroundings.

Contemporary and light, Maze Grill offers a chic but informal space in which to enjoy a wide range of cuts of beef, The Palm in Belgravia oozes a classic American buzz, whereas, if you really want to get stuck in, tuck in a bib and gorge on a feast of steak with all the trimmings, head to the relaxed and hedonistic Big Easy on The King’s Road.

John Torode’s Smiths of Smithfield serves delicious British produce in a New York-style setting just around the corner from London’s only working meat market. Also only a stone’s throw from Smithfield Market - and where you can enjoy exceptional meat as well as indulge in fresh oysters - is newly opened Redhook and Hix Oyster and Chophouse.

For the best of British, Rivington Grill serves up a mean steak and chips to be enjoyed in funky but chilled surroundings, The Guinea Grill offers a relaxed pub environment and Boisdale of Belgravia, serves a selection of differing cuts of Aberdeenshire beef with three choices of sauce and trimmings, in a more traditional setting.
