Hawksmoor is now spreading its wings across the capital, but that hasn't affected the Spitalfields original one jot. Wooden parquet flooring, brick walls and leather seating may not set pulses racing, but the food certainly does – this is a restaurant that understands the pleasure of eating, be it a starter of unctuous Tamworth belly ribs, a side of umami-rich mac and cheese or a nostalgic hit of cornflake ice cream. However, people are really here for Hawksmoor's ‘sublime' British-bred steak – ‘the best in London', sums up one of a legion of fans. Strapping bone-in prime ribs, 55-day-aged D-rumps and other sought-after cuts are all top-drawer, delivering deliciously charred crusts and mouthfuls of flavour. The wine list has plenty of beef-friendly reds, the enviable cocktail menu puts many of its Shoreditch neighbours to shame, and ‘attentive', professional staff are always keen to help and proffer advice.
