Westin St Francis and into Bourbon Steak. Michael Mina uses a method of cooking called butter poaching (click the link for the most amazing video ever...) and then finishes them off in a hot pan. His menu offers a wide range of quality steaks with fantastic accompaniments. Bourbon Steak takes the average steak house to another level...
USDA beef standards mean that the burgers and steaks you have in America are generally of a much higher standard to the average ones in the UK, meaning we didn't have bad beef the entire time we were there. We really wanted to sample the best they had on offer, to see whether it was much different.
Maze Grill. Charred on the outside, but pink and soft on the inside. Sealing them in butter is the work of a steak witch. That's one clever chap! They were exceptional value too. Don't get me wrong, this is a high end restaurant, but when compared to similar over here, the prices are very different. A Wagyu steak at Maze Grill is £85. At Bourbon Steak it is $72 (about £45). Even if there was a slight difference in size, I doubt the value would be the same. My husband's steak was a decent size and the quality was unbelievable!
