“Outstanding in its field”, chimed a fan after visiting this sophisticated Danish import, which aims for quality sourcing in the beef department. Readers have also been quick to applaud the
“opulent” art-deco trappings, dark-wood floors, red-leather booths and towering meat lockers in MASH’s high-ceilinged, subterranean dining room. It may come with an ‘American steakhouse’ tag, but
the menu kicks off with a clutch of globe-trotting starters (charcuterie plates, “divine” squid with chilli and lime, rich duck terrine etc), while meat is gleaned from Denmark, Uruguay and
Australia as well as the USA. Despite occasional quibbles about “gristly” New York strip, “overcooked” fries and meagre sides, most customers come away well satisfied – especially after a bowl of
“gorgeous-looking” apple crumble and a bottle of beefy wine. Service is “smart, courteous and professional”, helping to justify noticeably high prices.
The Mash list is – understandably – bigger on reds than on whites. Expect to find plenty of top-end French bottles, and an exemplary line-up of wines from California, with a range of vintages from big names such as Screaming Eagle, Harlan, Ridge and Opus One. Good selection of larger-format bottles, too.
When we first reserved a table at MASH we had visions of a whole section on the menu specialising in mashed spud. Wrong! MASH actually stands for Modern American Steak House, although steakhouse is one word. We assume that MAS didn’t sound as good so they applied a bit of artistic licence.And that’s not the only misleading fact about its name. The restaurant isn’t an American import, it is from Denmark. They’ve brought over their style of steak and even some extremely friendly and efficient front of house staff.Situated on the corner of Brewer Street and Lower James Street, on the lower ground...

Last year was the year of the steakhouses. Hawksmoor and Goodman’s took London by storm and since then the likes of Cut45 tried to get in on the action. The Danish steakhouse branch, MASH, the time is right to bring their franchise to London. On recommendation of a friend, I decided to give them a try...

MASH stands for ‘Modern American Steak House’, which is odd because this one’s from Denmark. The brand has a few steakhouses in native Copenhagen, and has recently opened its first London restaurant beneath Brewer Street in the depths of Soho.Don’t be fooled by its unassuming entrance, MASH is an absolute monster of a restaurant...

here is something raw about going to a steakhouse. It’s the ultimate place to go for the feel of being on top of the food chain. The interior of MASH definitely fuels on that feeling. Although being Danish there is nothing modest about the restaurant. Upon...

Feeling a little second tier as a foodie and a London blogger, I finally made it to MASH for the first time last night. Definitely worth the wait, I enjoyed my special “Menu Relief” dinner of a three courses, including MASH’s signature steak and cheesecake, for £50 with £20 of the proceeds going direct to Comic Relief...

Over the last few years I have walked past MASH on Brewer Street in Soho hundreds of times without knowing what it was or what they served. It was only when I saw a retweet of an offer for half price steaks in celebration of the Danish parent restaurant in Copenhagen turning five. From the outside the corner site is unassuming, however on entering the Apple computers and clean and modern reception suggests that some serious money was spent on the decor. As we were lead downstairs to the dining room we were shocked at the size and spacious grand interior. The ceiling is very high with a stunning bar area. A paradise...

Steak, seems to be everywhere in London these days. Unlike some food crazes however, this one is here to stay. Along with a Renaissance in burgers and street food has come a metropolitan fascination with all that is cattle. Big name restaurants including Hawksmoor, Gaucho, Goodman and Barbecoa have blazed a trail to the char grill, paving the way for a capital bouef bonanza.It’s a man thing. Am I right? I’m right. Trust me on this one. Guys feel manly eating steak and burgers. Girls follow suit and peck at the odd pattie or slice through a filet, but only as a means to being in with the in crowd. It’s a...

First up is a full review of a restaurant that I’ve never visited before despite having opened 2 years ago. MASH – a Danish brand but perplexingly the name stands for Modern American Steak House. The restaurant is a vast 300 cover space just behind Piccadilly Circus. The Art Deco style of the restaurant is stunning and I was immediately drawn in. I just wanted to get comfortable at the bar and stay there. It really is impressive. I could just imagine the movers and shakers of the 1920’s dancing away to a jazz band playing in the corner. Alas, dinner was waiting so enough day-dreaming…We were seated in a...

Dinner in the red leather booths of Danish-run MASH (Modern American Steak House) has always been out of my price range, but the bar is a different matter. Cocktails range from £9 to £12.50, and with the launch of a new American travel-inspired menu, there's never been a better time to check it out. There's no substitute for great staff and MASH are not short in that department, so swap the busy Soho streets for a 1920s ballroom, sit yourself down at their glamorous art deco island bar, and make some new friends. And if that isn't working out, you can always write some postcards using their innovative...

MASH still feels relatively new to this cavernous basement space in Soho, but having opened in 2012, it’s definitely overcome any growing pains it may have feared! It’s a beautifully masculine dining room and bar, with low lighting, dark wood and brass trimmings, a sea of cosy booths and a vibe that would be equally befitting of a business dinner as it would a date or catch up with friends; it attracts celebs, sports folk, and regular folk like me by equal measure, and it’s luxurious without being inaccessible. Rarely does such a place straddle such a myriad of social gatherings or clientele, but here we have it…I...
