did you have the dessert?

For steak

Hawksmoor or Goodmans are best. Personally like Hawksmoor air street as it's a nice building and they do very nice fish for those who don't want steak.

Flatiron if you want cheap.

Have also been to Garufin in Holborn and quite rate it.

Went to Shackfuyu a while back and it was almost empty, the hype has seriously grown since.

Goodmans definitely better meat. I would avoid hawks moor air St, shit atmosphere. Big groups of lads, the other hawksmoor venue are much better

slightly off topic - v good Gujarati vege food below. Not the most glamorous of surroundings, but spot on and cheap

For the street feast? Went a couple of times last year and it was decent- queues if there are any aren't that long at all.

Big fan of Rasa, never been to the central one but presume it can't be much different?

Rasa is wonderful. Didn't know they had one outside of Stokey. Where is it?

Just bothered to google. Grand. I'll be pushing that. The g/f fancies Dishoom but I'm not convinced

Went to Michael Caines at the Abode Manchester last weekend. Really nice tasting menu. Deserts and the wine pairings were particularly good

Looking for a good prix fixe menu round central / not too far from St Pancras. Seen people suggest Arbutus in the past, but just checking if anyone knows of any hidden gems
