This Hawksmoor is underground. We were greeted by a lovely lady at the door and told to walk down the stairs where a colleague would find us a table. I didn't thing it would be a complicated affair as it was already 10.30pm on a Wednesday night. We opted for the main dining room which is big. Really big. Because of the laid back atmosphere and the fact that everyone was wearing a suit it felt a little like being in a grown up school canteen, only darker (walls are covered in dark wood) and nicer.
We took our time ordering and we didn't feel push by the staff. The rib eye was fabulous. The smell was serenating my stomach seconds before I cut through it. Tender. It tasted like all piece of beef should taste like, full in flavour, delicately salted, becoming just that (good) side of sinful with a side of mac'n'cheese.
The staff, all together were friendly, cool (just like the Shoreditch team) and upbeat. A great fancy-free place where to finish the night.
