- M Threadneedle Street
M: 2 & 3 Threadneedle Walk, 60 Threadneedle Street, London, EC2R 8HP
Created by: Martin Williams
Executive Chef: Michael Reid
Food style: Grill and cocktail bar
M Threadneedle St. is an incredible, multi-faceted venue. It houses the M Grill Restaurant, a private members lounge, cocktail bar, wine tasting room, secret den, four private dining and event spaces! The venue is nothing short of sensational.
The glass-fronted restaurant lets in plenty of light, and the double-height ceiling adds to the vastness of the space. However, when blended with rich mahogany, M still feels luxurious and cosy. There is ample seating and plenty of booths for a more intimate meal, and with the bar upstairs, its easy to nip in for a quick drink at the beginning of an evening out.
M was voted the winner of: Best London Steak Restaurant 2017. It offers some of the best cuts of steak for a wonderful gourmet experience.
Other M venues include: M Victoria Street, M Wine Store, M Bar & Grill Twickenham
Barbecoa St. Pauls: 20 New Change, London, EC4M 9AG
Created by: Jamie Oliver
Food style: Barbeque and steakhouse
Boasting one AA Rosette, Barbecoa is the UK’s first barbeque steakhouse in London. It brings together slow-cooked, dry-aged meat, amazing cocktails, great wine, and outrageous desserts for a wonderful experience. The food is all about long, slow cooking, and fully flavoured, smoked steaks.
Not only does Barbecoa serve the most mouth-watering steaks, but there is also an incredible selection of seafood and game if you prefer something a little less heavy.
Boarbecoa also takes its drink seriously – the “whiskey wall” is home to the largest collection of whiskies in the entire UK capital. With views of the iconic St. Paul’s Cathedral, taking lunch or dinner at Barbecoa is a special event to be savoured.
Barbecoa has another venue in Picadilly, where you can also indulge in afternoon tea!
