    Best steakhouse you know?

    Where I live thereís a distinct lack of steakhouses. I guess they are more in cities. I often go to Hawksmoor when Iím in London and itís always really good, as was the one in Manchester last year. Went to Gaucho a few years back and that was good from memory.

    Lately Iíve been to Pasture in Bristol a couple of times and it was fantastic. Best meal Iíve had in a long time.

    Whereís your favourite?

    Another vote for Pasture - an amazing experience - had the private dining room upstairs and it was great (includes an ipod linked to spotify!).

    Gaucho is amazing, think I'd struggle to top that one. There was a good one outside Bury called Jabberwock and another close by called the Village Store, both very highly recommended.
    Went to the FirePit in southport last month on a recommendation from here, also excellent.

    It's hard to bugger up a good steak, you just need to find a place that uses really good cuts of meat and not cheap rubbish.

    Probably a bit far to make the trip for just a steak, but Peter Lugers in New York is very good.

    A bit closer to h9me, Iíve always found the Meat Locker in Belfast top notch.

    If you're ever in Quito, La Casa di mi Abuela. Best steak I've ever had!

    Iíve been to Miller and Carter a few times recently and they seem to do a pretty good job for a chain place.

    However for something exceptional Porterhouse in Oxford is pretty bloody amazing:

    Iíve eaten steak all over the world and thatís up there with the best of them.

    Cheers,

    Against the massif I don't rate Hawksmoor at all, average food in a noisy hipster setting.

    Best I ever had was Texas Land & Cattle Steakhouse in Dallas, slap bang in cow country.

    Not a steakhouse as such, but one of the nicest pieces of beef I've had in the UK was the Galician steak served up at the Basque restaurant in London 'Lurra'. It was truly wonderful. The thing that is different in this place is the age of the animal when slaughtered...much older. A very different flavour, especially of the fat, which was much more yellowed than that from a younger animal.

    Best steakhouse you know?

    If you're ever in Amsterdam you must book a sofa/chair here - https://www.castellamsterdam.nl/ you got to have your meal on a tray but its really worth it, try the onion soup for starters too..

    God the thought of a Texas ranch steak makes my mouth (and eyes) water! Something hanging off the edge of the plate at both ends please!!

    Old roadside steakhouse on the outskirts of Maynardville in Tennessee served the best steak and ribs I have ever tasted. Two Bulls here in Hastings served the second best steak I have ever tasted.

    Gaucho is consistently good. I like the one near Tower Bridge if you can get a window seat.

    The Imagination (Ali's) in Marmaris.

    I love steak.

    Gaucho in Richmond because the location is also great. Hawksmoor and Goodmans in central.

    Roxie steak (thereís a few in SW London) make a nice steak for the money. Iíve also enjoyed ĎKodí in Copenhagen and Trancher Entrecote in Oslo, as well as ĎLa vecchia liraí in Milan.

    Prime at the Bellagio. Absolutely fantastic. If possible get a terrace table.

    Bistecca Regina in Florence.

    Or find yourself a good butcher and do it yourself.

    I left out overseas restaurants as Iíd be talking about Vegas :-) Prime is excellent, as is SW which Iíve been to a few times as I normally stay at the Wynn. Though we normally go next door to Lakeside as they share the same kitchens and that also specialises in seafood, so best of both worlds.

    What really got me into my steaks was Michael Mina at Bellagio in 2007 I think on a stag do - tried wagyu for the first time and it literally melted in the mouth.

    The Westwood Bar and Grill in Beverley, East Yorkshire. All locally sourced and one of the best steaks around (and have done Gaucho, Hawksmoor and the like)

    Hawksmoor Covent Garden always good because they cook my steak well done as asked.

    Crazy money for what it is though, so normally Homeslice wins.

    Not been to the office in 7 months so hope these places survive.

    How do you cook your steak? At home I use the bbq with salt aged fillet, but never as good as a good restaurant

    At home sous vide the steak 55-56C with salt, pepper, rosemary and thyme and brown in a cast iron pan with oil and butter is very hard to bet. Other than that best steaks I've ever had is the old port market, Montevideo off the bbq's or a place in Nelson Mandela Square in Johannesburg called the butcher shop or something (I got fairly drunk so unsure of the name). Both of these suggested are probably useless to you though.

    I've stopped eating meat but back in the day the Montevideo port market beat anything the other side of RŪo de la Plata. This is a bit like the coffee thread, you have to travel to experience the best.

    Crumps Butchers Royal Wootton Bassett, then DIY.

    And their sausages are amazing - all 20 + varieties.

    Note to self :- Must remember to get black pudding as well in the morning, and a packet of their pork scratchings. :-)

    You wouldnít define it as a Ďsteakhouseí but they only serve steak, so it counts (sort of):

    The best steak (ribeye on the bone) I ever had was at St. Barts Smithfield (2014), the next best steak (Hereford ribeye) was at a chain restaurant Block House Berlin (2016).

    Best steak I have had since moving to Edinburgh was in Gusto on George Street followed closely by Miller and Carter at Cramond Brig.

    If weíre talking best steak ever is has to be the one in a local restaurant in Varadero, Cuba on Christmas Day a few years ago.

    My back garden, I have a choice of muntjac, roe or fallow backstrap steaks, or local Sussex lamb.

    all butchered by myself for the best cuts.

    You would be welcome, I am really enjoying my "field to fork" experience, making my own sausages and burgers now also.

    Having been a keen shot myself, there is nothing more rewarding and respectful I might add, in butchering your own kills, or tastier!

    That aside, my local Bella’s Pais (not a chain) run by my mate Andy in Colchester, is famed for it steaks and generosity of portions.
