An evening at Le Relais de Venise, L’Entrecote, Marylebone December 2011
A few weeks ago, during the festive period, we ventured across London for a different kind of dining experience. Nestled in the heart of Marylebone, Le Relais de Venise waits each evening for customers to fill its seats and line the streets. Le Relais is renowned for its steak and chips and the restaurant prides itself so much on this dish that it is the only dish you can order. The steak is prepared as you wish and you can have as many chips as you can possibly stomach. Le Relais is so popular that we had to arrive half an hour before opening and join the fast-growing queue. Looking around me I noticed that most of the hungry diners were men. This was certainly the place to take a man if you were looking to impress! I really enjoyed the food, though perhaps not quite as much the men did in my party, and would recommend it if you are in the mood for steak. It’s not the best steak in the world but its cooked well and the sauce is quite addictive… My top tip would be to arrive early to avoid disappointment and peering through the windows.
