Following the success of their Beak Street original, the guys from Flat Iron have taken over the premises formerly occupied by La Giaconda. Like its sibling, this democratic steakhouse specialises in serving its namesake – an underrated shoulder cut of beef also known as ‘top blade’ or ‘butler’s steak’, presented on an oblong wooden board with a fun-sized meat cleaver for doing the business. Also expect some top sides, including dripping-cooked chips and garlicky spinach, as well as dinky salads. With steak-friendly wines offered by the glass, it’s sure to be another affordable treat for young-at-heart Londoners. No bookings.

However, my gripes include the inability to make reservations (I don’t know how many times I’ve complained about this really farking annoying trend!) and the incability to cook...

I hadn’t had a chance to catch up with my Aunty since she came back from her annual winter getaway to Thailand and since it was payday, we decided to treat ourselves to a steak lunch. We went to Flat Iron who specialise in flat iron steak (top shoulder of beef). This is the main attraction, although they also offer a couple of daily specials (burger and wagyu beef from NZ when we went). Being our first time, we ordered their signature dish which, for £10, also comes with salad. We also ordered some dripping cooked chips and baked aubergine sides and peppercorn and Fred’s sauce (think bloody mary) to accompany the...
