London Steakhouse Company City, situated a stone’s throw from bustling Liverpool Street Station, has officially re-opened its doors to reveal an opulent split-level dining space enveloped with timeless British glamour.
The well-established London steakhouse combines impeccable food standards and outstanding table service, offering an unrivalled City dining experience. Behind the grand entrance and large double doors, guests are greeted by an immediate aura of energy and professionalism. High ceilings complement the sleek yet classic open-plan dining space, while a raised mezzanine seating area with its own bar commands a stately presence towards the back of the expansive room. For private events, heavy velvet curtains can be drawn across this space, seating 20, to create an exclusive party area.
On the ground floor, the 85-cover restaurant features a neutral colour scheme peppered with dark mahogany wood features. A brand new marble-top bar lines the length of one wall showcasing the finest spirits paired with premium digestifs. The walls are adorned with luxurious Farrow & Ball paints, while artworks by ‘Jak’ one of Britain’s finest political cartoonists (taken from the owner’s personal collection) echo around the space. Pristine white linen table clothes are married with dark-red leather hide to blanket the circular dining tables. Meanwhile, maroon leather arm chairs populate the room. Accents include a collection of antique mirrors from the Windsor Mirror Company, Corwell bespoke cabinets and newly laid dark hardwood chevron flooring. Newly installed air conditioning keeps the space at the optimum temperature.
Attention to detail has been paramount during the refurbishment. Atop each dining room table sits a charming miniature lamp, Robert Welch cutlery and RIEDEL wine glasses, while waiters ferry dishes displayed on Bauscher crockery.
Reflecting co-owner Marco Pierre White’s culinary style, London Steakhouse Company’s carefully curated menus feature seasonally changing classic British dishes. Every dish is made from scratch on site everyday – except the ice cream which comes from renowned supplier Ice Cream Union. Serving some of the finest meat cuts in London, the restaurant has a long-standing partnership with esteemed butcher Aubrey Allen. All steak cuts are dry-aged for 28 days, and served with a choice of Café de Paris butter, peppercorn or béarnaise sauce. As well as an eclectic meat and fish offering, the restaurant also serves a selection of vegetarian dishes.
In addition to the à la carte menu, the restaurant offers a Prix Fixed lunch and pre/post theatre menu priced at £27.50 for three courses. For group dining, the restaurant seats up to 100 private dining covers and separate menus are available for group bookings.
The newly installed whisky bar features an impressive list of cocktails and wines from both the New and Old World. The impressive bar can seat eight guests for drinks or dining, while suspended lighting complements the sparkling glassware and cut crystal decanters. Speciality cocktails include the best-selling Passion Jazz and classic Whisky Mac.
The London Steakhouse Company treasures its long standing team who have seen the restaurant evolve over the years. The devoted, passionate staff members led by GM Toni Topi are undeniably a key player in the restaurant’s overwhelming success.
The restaurant is arguably one of the most talked about restaurants in the country, as it is ranked the second most reviewed restaurant in the UK on Trip Advisor with over six thousand reviews – beaten only by Aqua Shard. Plus with more five star reviews than any other steakhouse in the UK, it’s evident that London Steakhouse Company has been busy giving people something to talk about.
As part of its commitment to charitable causes, the restaurant has teamed up with CLIC Sargent, the UK’s leading cancer charity for children and young people. The charity seeks to help children with cancer and support their families through tough times. On top of the £5K sum already donated to the charity this year, the restaurant has pledged to donate 50p to the charity for every signature house-cut fries served to diners.
Free Wi-Fi is available to guests upon request of the access code.
The restaurant offers vouchers from £25, as well as voucher dining packages ranging from £100 to £400. The £100 voucher entitles two guests to a steak and cocktail menu; while the lavish £400 voucher offers four guests a glass of Champagne each, three course meal from a luxury set menu, plus the choice of two bottles of wine up to £50 in value.
For the ultimate in exclusivity, the restaurant has launched the Longhorn Club (named after the English cattle – and logo) for regular customers. The Club offers silver and gold cards by invitation only to diners, entitling each guest to a priority booking line. As well as this premium service, 10% of card holder’s spend will be put onto their personal card for future use. For gold card members, an additional glass of Champagne will be served each time they visit the restaurant.
