Celebrate Spring At Our Steakhouse Restaurant In Stratford

Updated: Mar 11

From succulent steaks and mouth-watering burgers, and delectable desserts, The Grill Stratford has something for everyone this Easter.

We specialise in Mediterranean cuisine, which is well-known for being some of the most nutritious (and tastiest) in the world.

One reason for this is that Mediterranean cuisine focuses heavily on whole, minimally processed foods. These foods are rich in essential nutrients like vitamins, minerals, fibre, and antioxidants, which are beneficial for your overall health.

Mediterranean food also uses a lot of olive oil which provides healthy monounsaturated fats that can help lower LDL (bad) cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of heart disease when used in place of saturated or trans fats. Dairy products like yoghurt and cheese are consumed in moderation in Mediterranean diets, providing calcium, protein, and probiotics while minimising intake of saturated fats.

Our restaurant in Stratford specialises in many Mediterranean dishes which are hard to find in other places in London or elsewhere in the UK.

As a HMC certified restaurant, you can be assured that everything from our chargrilled chicken to our fine cuts of steak are halal. No matter if you’re dining out for Easter, your birthday or having a business lunch, our menu is suitable for both meat-lovers and vegetarians.

Mediterranean dishes focus on herbs and spices full of flavour.

Mediterranean dishes are often seasoned with flavourful herbs and spices like garlic, basil, oregano, and thyme, which add depth of flavour without the need for excessive salt or unhealthy condiments. At our restaurant in Stratford, we love experimenting with interesting flavours inspired from dishes all over the world.

In addition to its nutritional components, the Mediterranean diet is also associated with a lifestyle that includes regular physical activity, shared meals with family and friends, and a relaxed approach to dining, all of which contribute to overall well-being.

Why choose us as a steakhouse in the capital?

Nothing beats tucking into a juicy steak if you’re a committed carnivore. There are several factors which make a great steak, which we’ll explore below (along with why ours are considered top-notch):

Firstly, the quality of the meat is paramount.

Chefs should look for well-marbled cuts with a good amount of fat evenly distributed throughout the muscle fibres. You can be assured that we always use prime grade beef for our dishes at our steakhouse.

Did you know that different cuts have different qualities and flavours?

Some popular cuts for steaks include ribeye, fillet mignon, strip loin (New York strip), T-bone, and porterhouse. Each cut has its own unique texture, tenderness, and type of flavour.

Marbling refers to the intramuscular fat within the meat. A higher level of marbling generally results in a juicier, more flavourful steak. Look for steaks with abundant, fine streaks of fat throughout the meat.

Steaks should be a certain thickness.

Opt for steaks that are at least 1 inch thick, as thinner steaks can be more challenging to cook without drying out or overcooking.

Freshness can significantly impact the flavour and texture of the steak. The Grill Stratford always uses fresh, high-quality meat that is full of flavour and the perfect texture.

Proper seasoning is key for a first-class steak.

Our team always season our steaks generously just before cooking. We use the finest seasonings or marinades according to your preference, but can offer a simple seasoning of salt and pepper if preferred. This can allow the natural flavour of the meat to shine through.

There are several methods for cooking steak, including grilling, pan-searing, broiling, and sous vide. However, the aim is always to cook the steak to the desired level while developing a crust full of flavour on the outside.

Many chefs like to use a meat thermometer to ensure the steak reaches the desired level of doneness without overcooking. Different levels of doneness (rare, medium-rare, medium, etc.) require different internal temperatures.

No matter how you like your steak, we offer plenty of choice at The Grill Stratford.

Chefs should allow the cooked steak to rest for a few minutes before slicing and serving. This allows the juices to redistribute throughout the meat, resulting in a juicier steak. Since we’re true experts in preparing this kind of dish, you’re guaranteed to enjoy a first-class steak, perfectly cooked and brimming with flavour.

We can serve your steak hot and sliced against the grain for maximum tenderness. All you’ll need to do is garnish it with herbs or a drizzle of sauce if desired, and enjoy!

Please note, we have different opening times this spring, so it’s important to check them out before paying us a visit.
