Valentines Weekend ★★★★ Mr. White's | February 10 - 14, 2022


What's the ultimate test for a steak house? Take a friend who is a vegetarian! The latest addition to Marco Pierre White's string of successful restaurants is Mr. White's in Leicester Square – and it passed our test with flying colours! The newly refurbished venue has a basic down-to-earth steak house ambience and the emphasis is on hearty and filling steak and pasta dishes. We started with Aubergine Parmigiana and the Hot Smoked Salmon Caesar Salad. The Parmigiana was an ample portion size and was declared to be quite tasty while the portion of salmon was generous and included a lovely coddled egg on the side. I opted for the 28-Day Aged Ribeye Steak with Koffmann Fries for a main, and my vegetarian guest chose the Redefine Steak and Chips. Both came with a choice of Béarnaise Sauce or Garlic Butter. My steak was perfectly cooked, juicy and tender, and the accompanying fries were piping hot. My companion was extremely impressed by his 'steak' which had completely captured both the texture and flavour of beef. It was a selection that delivered on its promise. We complemented our meals with a shiraz which was smooth, and and not overly heavy. I'm not sure where we found room for dessert, but we somehow managed to indulge in a Baked Cheesecake with Blueberries that was suitably light after our robust repast. On our next visit we're looking forward to trying the pasta, which also provides some interesting vegetarian and vegan options. For a meal after a day trekking around the city or a special occasion, we'll be adding Mr. White's to our favourite eateries in the heart of London.
