London's Best Fillet Steak

Whether you call it filet like the French or fillet like the Brits, there’s no denying the tastiness of this cut of meat. We’ve picked out our favourite, and perhaps unexpected, places to get a bloody good chunk.

Winner:

MASH

Impossibly tender, flavoursome and salty, this Uruguayan cut of beef is the deserved winner of our best fillet steak in London. Ask for it rare and prepare to glide your knife down through the moist, blushing meat. Pair it with salty fries, onion rings (if we had an onion ring edit, these battered wheels of wonder would easily win) and creamed spinach. If you don’t have a favourite sauce - the classics are all there - try the red wine jus, it’s rich and complements the distinct flavour of the beef.

Contender:

Roxie Steak and Wine Cafe

The steaks may be a bargain, but that’s no reflection on the quality of the meat. The house special is the fillet - a good sign - and comes grilled, blackened and smoky on the outside, and soft and pink on the in. Ask for it rare and order the crispy home-made double-cooked chips (not quite triple, sadly), the grilled courgettes and the sauteed wild mushrooms.

New Street Grill

Sourced from Heron’s farm in Berkshire, the fillet steak at NSG is pretty decent. Opt for a medium rare 250g fillet - 300g if you’re not watching your waistline - it’s soft, tender and incredibly succulent. Go out on the sides with salty triple-cooked chips, creamy cauliflower cheese, good-greasy onion rings and some obligatory greens.
