Flat Iron, Soho
Summary: Brilliant in its simplicity
Steak or Die
If you went to a restaurant and the menu included a steak for £10 you’d more than likely give it a miss. But that all changed when Flat Iron opened in Soho, the first no frills steak restaurant in London. The menu is simple, you either order a steak or a burger; and to be honest that is all you need. The steak is tender, juicy and fantastic value. However the burger is the real star here and could quite possibly be made by the gods themselves. Dare I say it’s as good as Meat Liquor or Patty & Bun, but for some reason doesn’t share half the plaudits; but that’s good news for me so I can keep it all to myself!
You can’t reserve tables so there’s no pretentiousness; the menu is written on the wall so you know exactly what you’re getting; and if you were thinking about dessert, its chocolate mouse or nothing. Everything about Flat Iron is basic and that is the charm. If you love the fine dining steak experience you’ll hate it, but if you want a quick, relatively cheap meal in Soho (if you’re lucky enough to arrive and there’s no queue) then look no further.
