Flat Iron Covent Garden | Steak Restaurant
1. (n) Formerly an iron for pressing clothes, heated by being placed on a coal stove.
2. (n) A choice cut of steak, taken from the shoulder.
3. (n) A steak n’ cocktails joint which – just three years after opening as a pop up above an East London pub – is about to unveil its third restaurant.
And this one’s a bit different…
… in that it’s a bi-level, 4,500sq ft. ode to beef plumped amid the bustle of Covent Garden’s Henrietta Street, containing a bar dedicated solely to celebrating the craftsmanship of Yorkshire Beer; a glass-fronted on-site butcher shop, inside of which you’ll find ‘Butcher In Residence’ Jordan Ling, carving up an extended range of lesser known beef cuts; and a Gelato Counter serving hand-churned, salted caramel ice cream topped with freshly-flaked, Mast Brothers’ chocolate. Yes, freshly-flaked.
But this one’s also the same…
… as the original pop up, thanks to its carefully curated selection of wines, cocktails and craft beers complimenting those highly-marbled, £10 Flat Iron steaks served up (alongside sauces and sides like dripping cooked chips, creamed spinach and market greens) by a friendly and knowledgeable group who many people refer to as “waiters”.
But technically, they’re steakholders.
NOTE: Flat Iron Covent Garden is open daily from noon till midnight (11.30pm on Sundays). They are walk in only.
