Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last few months, you’re likely to have come across STK’s famous Instagram wall at some point while you do you daily (or hourly) timeline scroll, and there is definitely a reason for this. When it comes to the glam-factor STK delivers in every sense of the word.
With its vowel-free moniker, super-sleek looks, DJs on the decks and a "dress to impress" code (check if your threads will pass muster on the website); STK certainly comes with plenty of attitude.
The menu isn't shy or retiring either, piling on the indulgence with caviar starters, truffle toppings and lobster mac 'n' cheese, ahead of USDA prime-grade beef, Wagyu and British native-breed steaks at wallet-busting prices – although our New York strip and rib-eye both passed muster when it came to proper ageing and cooking. A lighter scallop and shrimp ceviche also scored points, though a dessert of deconstructed 'rhubarb and custard' was more style than substance.
Although best known as the place to be for an evening meal and a cocktail, STK’s simple but exciting lunch menu is ideal for a slightly more laid back affair, minus the stiletto heels and body con dresses. It features the likes of crispy chicken salad, and New Orleans favourite – the popcorn shrimp Poboy.
Hailing from the US and with locations all over the world, this branch has proved popular with an international crowd, and readers recommend it for glamorous entertaining with "attentive service" on the side.
Located in the ME Hotel, this sleek restaurant fits right in with The Radio Rooftop bar and Zela, the Hotels other stylish dining choices. So after enjoying a steak and snapping enough Instagram pics to last a lifetime head on up to the roof to finish your night in another one of London’s it places of the moment.
