oysters and steak


Recommended Posts

need to entertain someone in London and they have requested Oysters and Steak, any suggestions  - they won't eat in  a Ramsay joint!!

Assuming you don't mean on the same plate :raz: : Etranger, Gloucester Road sprang to mind first. The Charolais is great, and they'll do you a Wagyu too.

Why on earth make that assumption? ??? :huh:

"Steak and Oyster Pie" is a true classic of English cooking.

There were some good steaks, which came to the table naked, just so we could abuse them before they were burnt. And the star dish, a steak and oyster pie, was worth the trip on its own.

AA Gill reviewing Hix Oyster & Chop House, which might be just the ticket...

... though I'm not too sure about a review that barely gets half way through before saying -

So, that’s enough about me. Let’s talk about what Mark Hix thinks about me.

has anyone eaten at bordeaux?

yes, several times, very good deals in the week, very reasonable prices including wine, starters and mains definatly the stronger aspects, pastry a little weak

well worth a visit, it has never been too busy when i have been,

my only gripe would be that the service is a trying to be a little stuffy and a bit pushy compared to the rustic regional cuisine, overall i love the place, try the terrines and charcuterie for two!

I've been a couple of times as well - once with Andy when it first opened and had a stupidly long menu and once a couple of weeks back for dinner. The food is very pleasant and as Simon says reasonably priced. I have never seen more than a handful of people there so worry about how long it can survive. Whilst the menu has been shortened, last time I went I thought it was still too long.

Service is good although almost too attentive - they all seem so bloody happy just to be serving someone! Ollie has added a nice touch to the very pleasant bread and butter by adding a lovely pork rillette (I think it is pork, but my memoy could be playing tricks!) and cornichons. All in all well worth a visit!

If a man makes a statement and a woman is not around to witness it, is he still wrong?
