Square Meal Review of Steam & Rye ?

Casey Jones meets the Fourth of July in a theatrical display of flag-waving and railroad imagery at this brash bar-restaurant – there’s even an art deco locomotive charging out of one corner. More confident than subtle, Steam & Rye nevertheless provides a memorable setting for the “delicious” crab-shack cuisine. As well as USDA grain-fed Nebraska beef, there’s a choice of large or small lobsters from the Josper grill, plus smoked pulled pork and 1kg barbecue ribs. Sides of corn bread, onion rings or mac & cheese echo the American theme, as do “generous” portions. A crowd-pleasing round-up of brownies, sundaes and the like concludes matters. The short wine list has a New World bias and plenty of Champagne at prices to suit deep City pockets; alternatively, try one of the “amazing” and colourfully named cocktails. Some find the place “noisy” and opinions divide on the efficacy, or otherwise, of the service.

    The Funky Truth :: Kelly Brook's cracking baps

    Because we desperately need it, London’s got a new American restaurant. It’s adopted the same kind of approach to over-elaboration as TGI Friday’s, but that’s the last time we’ll speak about that place as Steam and Rye, on Leadenhall Street, is about as far away from that lovely little chain as you can possibly get.

    Far away in the literal sense as well – there are no TGI’s in EC1 – the only red and white stripes around here are on Cityboys’ ties. A self-styled ‘late-night restaurant and party bar’ (whatever that is), Steam and Rye – somewhat aptly – sits within the grand old Bank of New York building,...

    Lux Life | A Lifestyle Blog :: Steam and Rye, Bank.

    I first heard of Steam and Rye when Caroline from Cocktails and Caroline recommended it to me. It's only been open since November, but is already causing a storm in the City. A 1920s American bar and restaurant, it's open from midday-3am on weekdays, and 6pm-3am on Saturdays, so is the ideal place to take you from work to dining to partying. I'm currently in-between jobs at the moment, and don't start my new one until I get back from Australia (2 weeks til take-off and counting!) in six weeks time, so Sarah and I decided to check out the Steam and Rye lunch menu while they have a 50% discount offer on.
