SquareMeal Review of
Smollensky's on the Strand
Pulling in the punters for more than two decades, this stalwart on the Strand has a relaxed vibe & cheery, accommodating staff. The surprisingly light basement space is smartly decked out, with
a large bar area that’s a popular choice for birthday bashes & leaving dos. A menu of familiar US favourites – think prime steaks, ribs and burgers – is supplemented by
lighter salads as well as indulgent desserts such as Smollensky's famous peanut butter cheesecake. Drinks scour the globe for a hotchpotch of cocktails, wines & big-brand beers, so check the daily happy-hour deals (5-9.30pm). Kid's can enjoy a special kids’ menu, while the grown-ups can enjoy live music from 5-8pm Monday-Wednesday.
