The Kitty Hawk Raises the Steaks
As one of the most innovative cities in the world when it comes to food and drink, having a successful restaurant in London means having the drop on everyone else. Especially when it comes to something as seemingly simple as steak and fish. But far from simple, Kitty Hawk offers a delicious all day dining experience from champagne breakfasts, to laid back lunches, to evening cocktails.
A short walk from London’s Liverpool Street Station, Kitty Hawk’s elegant and relaxed atmosphere is immediately welcoming. It hosts a bar and more relaxed dining area upstairs with a more formal restaurant hidden downstairs.
Mouth Watering Menu
The main restaurant has a carefully selected, mouth-watering menu. Steak and seafood are the main players, but veggies aren’t forgotten either. For starter, the mezze plate is a must. The matching of soft burrata, parma ham, roasted peppers and herb marinated goats cheese worked so well that we could have licked the board clean.
And if we thought the starter was hard to follow, we were soon proven wrong. The 8oz fillet steak was cooked perfectly. Paired with chunky chips cooked in beef dripping and béarnaise sauce, every bite was a little taste of heaven. The Ashdale beef comes from Alec Jarrett, a West Country family business founded in 1926. The steak is dry-aged for 7-10 days and wet-aged for another 28 days, resulting award-winning 35-day aged, tender British steak.
And for the veggies, the roasted squash and dolcelatte galette that we paired with a side of wilted spinach is a must. The perfectly flaky pastry melted in the mouth and the UK sourced cheese was creamy and delicious.
One of the best chocolate cakes we’ve ever had!
The extensive dessert menu left us spoiled for choice, but after careful deliberation and a recommendation from our waitress, we chose the aptly named decadent chocolate cake. It was by far one of the best chocolate cakes we have ever had here at Love Hospitality. Decorated with dark chocolate rolls, fruit compote and homemade honeycomb, is was the perfect way to end the meal.
Stunning food, matched by the service
Not forgetting the all important cocktails, the Mile High Mule was our favourite and definitely worth a try.
The stunning taste and presentation of the food was only matched by the service we received. The floor staff were attentive and friendly. They knew the menu inside out and gave great recommendations.
The Kitty Hawk offers something for everyone. Whether it’s a quick working breakfast, a relaxed lunch or a catch up with friends over cocktails, you will be drawn back time and time again to try what else they have on offer.
