Lurra 22

Squaremeal Review of Lurra ?

Across the road from sister Donostia, this Basque grill restaurant is best known for its “delicious lumps of old cow” – the 14-year-old Galician steak which causes intense excitement among beef geeks. But even without the charcoal-grilled centrepiece (or its equally excellent pescatarian equivalent of whole turbot with Txakoli sauce), Lurra promises plenty of thrills. It’s particularly big on fish; try Cornish monkfish with moscatel and garlic sauce, grilled octopus with piquillo peppers or courgette flower stuffed with cod brandade. Fries with smoked paprika and aïoli go with everything, while desserts feature home-made ice cream, a simple milk pudding served with orange-blossom honey and exemplary chocolate fondant. Enjoy it all in a laid-back space spread over two floors, with plenty of places at the counter and a bright dining room done out in ashy-pale wood and marble. The wine list benefits from the owners’ expertise in the import business.

A terrible let-down

Along with no booking policies, restaurants that have a "concept" and Spurs, I'm not a fan of restaurants only letting you have a table for a set time period (anywhere from one-and-a-half, to the slightly odd two-fifteen at Lurra). That said, if you do have a policy, please respect it. Turning up at 8.40 for an 8.30 table, I expect to be sat straight away. To be told that the earlier sitting still hasn't got their bill is fine, provided you present it to them and move them on;...

    A Girl Has to Eat - Restaurant Reviews & Food Guide :: A Girl has to Eat: Lurra

    The team behind the wonderful Spanish tapas restaurant Donostia recently launched a new restaurant, Lurra, a few months ago. Located a few steps down from it’s big sister, Lurra is similarly a celebration of Basque food. Lurra means “land”, and draws its inspiration from the traditional charcoal and wood grills of the region.

    Lurra is a sleek looking outfit. The entrance is small and initially leads into a narrow space. On the right were some refrigerators boasting an impressive range of 14 year Rubia Gallega “Galician Blond” Prime Rib which forms part of the menu (but more on this later). Thereafter you...

    Sam Stewart Etc :: Sam Stewart etc: Lurra Restaurant Review

    I had been reading about Lurra, the new sister restaurant to Donostia, located across the street in Marylebone and we booked it to go with our friends Paul and Chris who had been away for the summer.

    We started with cocktails at Seymour Parlour, the new bar inside the recently opened Zetter Hotel in Marylebone. The bar is cosy and charming with a bit of an antique/old-school décor and the cocktails are reasonably priced (£9.5-£10.5 which compares well to other spots in the area). Some pictures at the bottom of the review…
