Butcher & Still
Time Out Says
Notorious for its brilliant 1930s Chicago theme, fine cuts of meat and just being ‘pure class’ in general, we are expecting big things as we slide into our plush leather booth.
In front of us is the dedicated bakery counter. The delicious smells coming from the oven mean that we are are abnormally excited for the bread to arrive. The truffle-infused butter melts beautifully into the soft brioche bread, still wonderfully warm from the oven, and we can’t help but demolish almost all of it before the starters arrive.
We try to go lightly to start with, as we know the mains will be heavy. The meaty gulf prawns are accompanied by a zesty lemon and tomato chutney, while the tomato soup is smooth and delicious.
When the mains arrive, it’s quite a spread. We quickly pause to take a photo for Instagram before diving in. We plump for a steak (when in Rome, and all that) and it exceeds our very high expectations. We finish the signature house fillet with some creamed spinach and potato gratin; it’s a combination of all things that make steakhouses great. The sides are almost as fine as the main event.
We also go for the garlic-roasted chicken. The meat falls off the bone perfectly, and it’s finished with a lovely rosemary-infused gravy.
The smartly-dressed servers are incredibly efficient without being overly fussy. Every minute of the experience is highly impressive.
