Bar + Block launch their new Autumn / Winter menu - yum!

Bar + Block, the well loved steakhouse has multiple branches in the capital and last week we popped into the Kings Cross branch to try out their new Autumn Winter menu.

Located just 5 minutes from Kings Cross station the restaurant is a real hit with Londoners so even if you’re planning to visit on a weeknight I’d recommend booking in advance.

The emphasis is on steak, steak and more steak which is fine by us. The back of the menu is dedicated to explaining the different cuts available, from rump, rib eye, sirloin, fillet or their signature spiral cut fillet. And if you want to stray from the straight and narrow then you can always opt for the Butcher’s Block which is a collection of rotating specials; served on a solid wooden block with a choice of sauces. The steaks are sourced from the Pampas in South America then dry-aged for a minimum of 28 days and all the dishes are served with beef dripping chunky chips - yum!

If you’re looking for something lighter then the menu also features salads, fish and vegetarian main meals. The whole sea bass served with served with broccoli, baby capers, chilli, garlic and cherry tomatoes was particularly appealing to me.

For starters we’d recommend sharing two or three dishes between you. The portion sizes are perfect to get you started without filling you up so much that you can’t enjoy the main meal. Highlights for us include the cheese and jalapeno stuffed dippers and the new pulled beef tacos.

The dessert menu features british classics and you can choose warm sticky toffee pudding served with ice cream, classic lemon and clementine cheesecake or a triple chocolate brownie to name just a few.

Drinks include a selection of classic red and white wine as well as prosecco and champagne. If beer is your choice of drink you can choose from a selection of craft beers from BrewDog and Goose Island,

The food is reasonably priced as the motto of the restaurant is high quality steaks at high street prices. The steaks start from as low as £12.95 but can go as high as £26.95 if you fancy the Tira De Ancho, which is the 14oz spiral cut ribeye, marinated in garlic, parsley and chilli and served with chimichurri.
