Situated in the heart of SoHo, newly opened Steak on Elgin is bringing fresh and sustainable produce to steak lovers in the 852. With a focus on meat and seafood from the British Isles, this premium steakhouse is serving up classics such as Beef Tartare, Triple Cooked Fries, Creamed Spinach and a range of quality beef cuts, all treated with the upmost care and served with finesse.

We began our evening with some appetisers to share. Saving ourselves for the steak to come, we opted to try the Grilled Spanish Octopus with Anchovies, Roasted Garlic and Caper Sauce ($185), along with the Buffalo Burrata Cheese from Campania with Vine Tomatoes, Smoked Tomato Jam and Basil ($168). The octopus was tender and meaty, charred on the outside, giving a beautiful depth of flavour. The burrata was a great contrast to the octopus and a great option to share. Creamy and smooth, coupled with the juicy fresh tomatoes and the sweet tomato jam, you were able to get a lovely mix of flavours and textures in one mouthful – though the tomato jam may be a little sweet for some. Both plates were prettily presented, though packing a real hit when it came to flavour, it left us excited for what was to come.

Although Steak on Elgin does offer a fish of the day (monkfish, when we visited), it would be rude to visit to a steakhouse and not sample the cuts of meat, so when it came to the mains, we couldn’t resist the UK Native Breeds Dry Aged Filet Mignon on the Bone ($480), and chose to couple it with the Welsh Organic Lamb Rack ($68). When it comes to the drinks here, the restaurant has an exclusive range of mature wines spanning over 350 bottles, so you’re sure to fine a tipple to suit your palate, and the knowledgeable sommelier will be pleased to offer advice. Though again, in my opinion, it would be rude not to sample at least one glass of red.

As with the starters, the mains here were elegantly presented, but the flavours spoke for themselves. Perfectly cooked (a medium rare for the steak, and a pink medium for the lamb), both meats gave a hearty taste of home, and will not disappoint any carnivores out there. And don’t think that we were enjoying our steaks with a limp side salad, in keeping with the home comforts, our sides included the likes of Hand Cut Triple Cooked Fries with Garlic Aioli, Spinach with Bana Cauda Cream and Yorkshire Pudding, with Gravy (all $78). The creamed spinach was a standout for me, comforting and moreish, the more than generous portion made my eyes light up. This, alongside the crispy yet soft Yorkshire (no easy feat), and the juicy beef made for one heavenly mouthful. What I also loved at Steak on Elgin was the house sauces that were served alongside the meats; a trio of Béarnaise, Peppercorn and Port. There are not many things in life that I enjoy more than crispy chips dipped in Béarnaise sauce, so this was a real treat.

To cap off our meal, we stayed true to the British theme and sampled Grandma’s Boozy Trifle ($128) and the Selection of Cheeses ($160). Another great option for sharing, the selection of British cheeses came compete with crackers, quince jelly and dried fruits. The boozy trifle wasn’t quite as my Grandma used to make it, but it was still a lovely end to our meal.

Still in its soft opening, Steak on Elgin is an intimate spot, well-suited towards a special occasion date-night (or if you’re looking to impress serious steak lovers). The service was attentive, and not-over bearing in the small space, with the understated and tasteful décor making for a comfortable atmosphere.
