Astor Grill in a nutshell:
A low-lit and atmospheric restaurant, the Astor Grill at the St Regis offers diners fresh fish and tender meat, with an excellent range of starters, sauces and sides. The restaurant’s steak has gained a reputation as some of the best in
town, and rightly so: the prime cuts of beef are carefully sourced, and
the menu changes regularly, not only to keep things fresh and exciting,
but also to ensure diners are able to sample some of the best cuts from
around the world.
Why is it worth it?
The restaurant hits the nail on the head when it comes to creating a warm and calming ambience that’s both romantic and conducive to the enjoyment of your food. You can watch your creation being brought to life in the open kitchen, and ask questions of the knowledgeable waiting staff, who are incredibly knowledgeable and helpful.
It feels like a special occasion restaurant; somewhere to head to for a date night or celebration.
What was the best dish?
We devoured a juicy Australian Rangers Valley Wagyu Tenderloin from the Josper Grill, which was as soft as butter on the knife. However, I’ve also heard that the 21-day aged cuts are phenomenal.
