I finally got a chance to visit the lovely Maze Grill – i had only heard from those who had been on business lunches that it was excellent so i longed to try it out myself. Hurray – finally!
OK, in terms of decor, its very white/light in colour a la Chez Bruce and tables are well laid out so where i sat, you could see the chefs at work. I was hoping to see Jason Atherton as id loved watching Great British Menu but nothing, just normal cheffy types. Service was good – pleasant knowledgable waiter who was very friendly, and i noted how other groups were treated as so too – always a nice thing rather than waiters frowning as they turn their backs.
Foodwise – both of us picked lovely fillet steaks which was close to £28 each. This was Hereford grass fed – ie i think meant to be very good, but there was also an array of meaty options, many of which i could have gorged down. I have to hold my hands up and say, the food is excellent and mouthwateringly so. I don't remember tasting a more perfect steak aside from maybe the ever excellent Gaucho. Anyway, I didn't really want to say that Maze Grill is as good as it is as it is hugely expensive for ‘just a steak’ but as my sister put it, ‘its really not that easy to find a decent cooked one’. Everything was also exceedingly well presented on a little wooden chopping board type things with a large roasted garlic bulb – very cool and satisfying my comfort craving tendencies…all in all, the main course was incredibly filling and satisfying that we didnt have pudding but i'd say we were mainly there for the steaks, desserts could come later!
Downsides – the price as at £70 for two and just for one course, this was very hefty for the average person who sees dining out as a treat but hasnt a huge disposable income – but i did note that one of the larger family type groups there went for the set menu which was 2 courses for £15, 3 for £18 which is pretty amazing given it's Central London and part of the Gordon Ramsey chain. I left thinking yes it's pricey but that i'd definitely go back as a treat – a real luxury for a London carnivore i'd say!
