Occupying the old Bank of New York building – and formerly Prism – this grand, all-American restaurant and bar complex is the result of a hook-up between Nick House (best known for Mayfair’s Mahiki bar) and model-cum-actress Kelly Brook. Staples include USDA Prime and Hereford steaks, sweet Canadian lobsters and fleshy BBQ ribs, which are a definite highlight. Rich mac ‘n’ cheese and meat-heavy crab cakes also impress, while baked vanilla cheesecake is a standout dessert. With the exception of a sturdy Champagne selection, the wine list is disappointingly short, leaving creative cocktails served in cups modelled on heads of American presidents to improve the drinks offer. From high-ceilings to portion sizes, everything here is on a massive scale, although what should be a mightily impressive space is dimmed by rather shoddy decor, which suggests it was completed in a rush.
