SquareMeal Review of
Gaucho Chancery Lane
Steak fans find themselves inexorably drawn to Gaucho, where perfectly prepared slabs of prime, pampas-fed Argentinian beef are the main attraction. Browse the different cuts before choosing your
favourite, perhaps with a side of perfectly crisp chips & peppercorn sauce, washed down with a Malbec from the first-rate wine list. Elsewhere, the menu offers plenty of choice from zesty
ceviche or shrimp causita starters, to empanadas, grilled pork matambre & dulce de leche tart. Though the food is rarely at fault, there have been grumbles about ‘tedious’ & ‘disappointing’
service, while high prices are a recurring gripe – even among the loyal following of Chancery Lane legal eagles. At least the striking black-&-white cowhide interior, with its dim lights,
mirrors & sleek balcony bar provides a suitably sophisticated setting for some wallet-flexing.
