My gorgeous friend and fellow foodie Geneva and I have taken it upon ourselves to try out some of the yummiest haunts in London - hard life ey? Geneva was desperate to try out this coveted little steak house, Flat Iron, in Soho and of course I was happy to oblige.
After checking out the minimalistic website (click here) and hearing recommendations from friends, I still only knew very little of Flat Iron prior to arriving;
1. Be prepared to wait.
2. It may just be the best steak in town.
3. Cocktails pass the time beautifully.
Steak and cocktails.
The basement bar had a totally chilled atmosphere and offered a minimal cocktail list from which we both had to sample the summer special of Strawberry & Basil Collins.
Buzzer time! We excitedly showed our buzzer to the front of house who took us to our two little spaces on the big ol'shared table on the top floor of the restaurant.No time needed for choosing what to have.
Option A or B.
Steak or special.
With a whole load of sides and sauces to complement the big hunk of meat.
After mingling with the rest of the people on our sharer bench we all decided to opt for the Flat Iron 10oz Steak, which gives the establishment its name.
Lashings of homemade peppercorn sauce and we delved straight in, barely taking a pause for breath - the steak was that melt in the mouth good.
A perfect destination for a quick and delicious bite with friends, but not the best place for a date. due to their no bookings policy.
Already planning the next date night with Geneva, its going to be a good'un - so stay tuned.
