Meat People | Islington Steakhouse
You’re either a meat person, or you’re not.
Unless you’re a pescetarian, which doesn’t count as being either.
Jerry Lee Lewis? Definitely a meat person….
“Born in Texas, a land of beef,
Never cared much for greens, y’oughta heard I like meat
Meat, meat, meat, meat, man.
Woo, meat man! Yeah, I’m a meat man, baby!
Hey! Meat man! Hoo!”
…… albeit an annoying one.
A real gem – for Jerry and all of the other meat people in London – is Islington’s first dedicated (and fully inclusive) steakhouse: Meat People.
Located in an intimate space on the ground floor of a Grade II listed building at the base of Essex Road (the interior of which has been restored to give a 1920’s diner vibe), it serves up grass-fed beef from the UK, Spain and South America, in addition to retro cocktails and a selection of quirky world wines.
Pescetarians note: there are a range of fish options on the menu. Yes you, too, are very much one of the Meat People here.
Whether you’d like to be or not.
NOTE: Meat People is open daily for lunch (brunch on weekends) and dinner. You can find out more, and reserve a table, on their website HERE.
