The Forge is a little sliver of a silver lining illuminating the starry skies of Ritz-Carlton hospitality. The intimacy of the experience is afforded by the talented service and gorgeous décor that is imbued with a sense of historic craftsmanship. As soon as you enter The Forge, you are privy to a real flash of magic. Stylish wagyu cowhide dresses the floor (it is a steak restaurant after all) and crimson chairs and salmon-gold plates slip a sense of warmth into the restaurant that is cloaked in moody darkness. The menu is super-chic, and finely tuned with elements of brilliance. It would be criminal not to try the steak. There are a colossal number of options, from Spanish Iberico tenderloin to Australian master Kobe beef. The flavours will render you speechless – you won’t be blamed if you don’t bother to try and make conversation with your company any longer, preferring to focus solely on the spectacular food.
