Champagne and Steak at STK London
2nd July 2019
If you are looking for a modern and easy to get to location in London to enjoy some fine Champagne and steak then the STK London restaurant within the ME Hotel in Strand, WC2 should surely be on your places to visit.
You are in the heart of the theatre land of London with just a few minutes walk to the likes of The National Gallery, Somerset House and The River Thames. The Me London Hotel is a stylist looking and trendy location with many varied events taking place inside along with guest rooms should you wish to stay the night – The Radio rooftop bar with terrace area is also a must visit.
As you walk in to the Me London you are welcomed at the door and soon walk into the STK on the ground floor where the colourful bar area with its display of spirits call you over – The design and atmosphere is a new age style over anything traditional, young and trendy with detailed design layout with leather booths and countless mirrors offering a vibrant and spacious setting.
My invite was to explore the Champagne menu and sample one of their famous steaks:
“STK Steakhouse artfully blends the modern steakhouse and a chic lounge into one, offering a dynamic, fine dining experience with the superior quality of a traditional steakhouse.”
The menu offers you a fine hearty meal where meats take prominence with fine starters to main courses including fish and lesser choices for vegetarians / vegan requirements.
The best place to start was with a look at the Champagne menu over sipping the house Champagne of Taittinger, the list is bold in offering Dom Pérignon, Cristal, Billecart Salmon and Krug plus allowing you to push the boat out with magnums and jeroboams including 1999 Cristal and Jacquart Mosaique. There is also an extensive still wine menu.
I suggest you start you meal with their signature Lil Brg’s which are mini juicy and very tempting USDA beef with special sauce burgers.
There is a wide selection of steak options to choose from with small, medium and large cuts – You can indulge in the likes of fillets, rump, T bone and more. I opted for the USDA grain fed fillet (200g) with Parmesan truffled chips.
There is also a wide selection of cocktails to tempt you with many including Champagne – Twisted Bellini was the perfect ending to a relaxed afternoon spent reviewing STK London.
