Going from its location in the heart of bustling, businessman-drenched Smithfield, you’d be forgiven for expecting Grill on the Market to be a bit stiff and lifeless. But this steak-centric stands out from the many business-lunch watering holes dotted between Barbican and Farringdon as a unique and vibrant joint, from the lovely live piano music down to the buzzy, casual atmosphere.

But, of course, that’s all well and good, but if the food – which is quite pricey – is a let down, its an immediate write-off. Thankfully, the restaurant follows through on its menu’s ambitious promises – ‘world class’ cuts of beef cooked to absolute perfection. The steaks are the main event – our Australian Aberdeen black fillet, was medium rare and incredibly juicy – there are plenty of other options to keep satisfy non-meatlovers, including a selection of pan-fried and breaded fish.

Our only gripe is that, when you’re paying nearly £50 for a steak, it seems a bit absurd to charge nearly £3 for bearnaise sauce. But that aside, its one of the best meals we’ve had in the city in a while.
