This Russian-owned steakhouse is widely considered the epitome of red meat in London – and now there’s a City branch. The 150 day-aged corn-fed USDA beef is second to none, and there’s lots of other goodies on the menu too. 11 Old Jewry, EC2R 8DU, tel: 020 7600 8220.
This Old Street favourite does one of the best burgers in town. All the meat is first-rate, cut from the UK’s finest breeds, including Long Horn and Lincoln Red. A new venue is launching soon in Covent Garden. 157 Commercial Street, E1 8BJ, tel: 020 247 7392.
Charcoaly Lake District beef, minimum 28 days matured, is served on wood planks with onion rings and cooked tomatoes. A wine cellar with 40,000 bottles – and brilliant sommelier Neleen Strauss – ensure a great meal. 8 High Timber Street EC4V 3PA.?Tel: 020 7248 1777
