Square Meal Review of Beast ?

Having wowed Londoners with Burger & Lobster, the Goodman steakhouse group has come up with another wheeze – this time involving steak and luxurious Norwegian red king crabs (the divas of seafood). Dominated by three huge communal tables lit by candles and dripping candelabra, the dramatic basement dining room is an extravagant setting for an extravagant set menu weighing in at a hefty £75 (without drinks). Following some mature morsels mined from a huge quarter-wheel of parmesan, diners are offered a slab of quality rib-eye steak, served with smoked heritage tomato salad rather than chips. But crab is really the main event here: sweet, succulent flesh that makes native examples pale into insignificance. Swanky sides are rather unnecessary, while the pricey wine list is a who’s who of top producers. Beast is a beauty for the West End’s high-rolling crowd, though we wonder who would visit more than once.

  1. I was visiting a temple to carnivores – and perhaps just male ones. I can’t imagine a well brought up woman wanting to eat at a place called Beast. A beast of a bear and a young eastern european beauty with a lilting accent and first world teeth greeted us in the foyer. The bronze statue of the bear is the beast the restaurant’s named after, although confusingly bear is not on the menu. In fact there is no menu. One is fed a giant Norwegian Red King crab and a big slab of aged Nebraskan Black Angus, bookended by cheese and dessert. That’s it. It’s a posh take on surf and turf, that perennial blue collar date dish, at £75 a head (about US$ 125)...

  2. Straight after getting engaged, Andrew whisked me off to eat at Beast. Beast is the new-ish venture by the team behind Burger & Lobster. The restaurant has a set menu with two main dishes: crab and steak. But boy what crab and steak they are… We arrived and were zipped down to the subterranean banqueting hall and were met with a huge wall of cow carcasses and live crab tanks housing huge Norwegian king crabs. At the bar we were served a complimentary glass of champagne (wish I could get engaged every day!) and there were HUGE wheels of parmesan to help ourselves to. Love a salty snack with my pre-dinner fizz!...

  3. Opened in early May in Marylebone by Goodman, Beast is London's latest and most exclusive King Crab and Steak restaurant, with a fixed price menu concept  (£75 per head).  It has been a while since I have sat down to a good steak dinner, and the thought of eating King Crab as well just added on to the excitement.Mr F was running slightly late, so I grabbed myself an Old Fashioned whilst waiting at the bar...
