We decided to visit fashionable Chelsea and have lunch at Marco Pierre White’s Steak House Co. on Kings Road. There was a £25 four course beef tasting menu offer. As a huge steak lover I couldn’t resist
The area we sat in was fairly small, with another two areas on other levels for busier days. The area we were seated was modest, with clean lines and plenty of mirrors to give the perception of space. The clientele were generally either older or couples celebrating a birthday or such. So there was a gentle hum, it felt rather grown up.
We were welcomed by the waiters who were incredible professional and friendly. We were given the menu (MEAT!) and given a few minutes to decide. The first two courses were set, beef carpaccio followed by ribs, and then we had a choice of a few beef dishes for main course. The carpaccio came out quickly – not quick enough to make you wonder if it had been pre-plated and had been lying around though – and was drizzled with basil oil and peccarino. The meat was so tender it literally melted in the mouth. Divine.
The ribs were a great surprise to me – I am not really keen on meat on the bone – as the chefs had deboned and left two juicy lumps of meat on top of homemade coleslaw. For main course we both went for the rump steak served with chips, vegetable and a peppercorn sauce. We asked for it to be medium rare and it came out more rare than we asked for but I personally like rare steak so I was more than happy.
For desert we went for the cheese board and summer fruits cheesecake both of which again were great. I was so stuffed.
All of this was washed down by a bottle of Argentinian Malbec. What more do you want on a rainy Sunday afternoon?
