I actually went to Flat Iron Steak ages ago, but only just got round to talking about it - which is rubbish, because it's a place that NEEDS to be shared with everyone. Flat Iron have two restaurants in London, one in Soho and one on Denmark Street. We initially went to the Soho one, but it was super busy. The hostess recommended we try the Denmark Street branch, so we walked there and it was really quiet, although after we arrived, it seemed that lots of other people had been told the same thing and it got busier!
Lately I've been really appreciating restaurants that specialise in one type of food, as I find having a simple menu with one focus means they can really focus on their specialism. As you might have guessed from the pictures, Flat Iron focus on STEAK. Steak is great. I like steak a lot. And Flat Iron's steak is without a doubt the best I've ever had. Amazingly juicy and tender (they recommend medium rare, which is my usual steak-y go-to anyway), the taste is just so...full! I could have probably eaten another afterwards for the taste alone! I had some of their dripping chips too, which are absolutely amazing, and they bring you out a little cup of popcorn to nibble on. They also do some cool beers and cocktails, but us being skint, we opted for the tap water...
The steak itself was £10, and there are also a couple of 'specials' that are a bit pricier, but I think a tenner for a really amazing quality steak is pretty bargainous really, definitely worth it. I'm totally going to be heading to Flat Iron more often, it might well be one of my new favourite places to eat in the city!
Have you ever been to Flat Iron?
