Blades at Hush for some Steak, Lobster and Whisky

Blades at Hush steak and LobsterThree of my favourite words can be found in Blades at Hush, Steak, Lobster and Whisky.  The restaurant specialises in classic British dishes set in a 60’s inspired central Mayfair location.

Blades at HushThe name of the restaurant is a nod to the private member’s club of James Bond’s M, and reflects the ethos that Hush is a “private member’s club without the membership.”

The menu revolves around steak, lobster and other distinctly British classics. Sipped alongside these are a very special selection of American, Scottish and Japanese whiskies, which can be enjoyed on their own, in a “Whisky Flight” or in a Blades “Tipple,” featuring their own Blades blend whisky.Blades at Hush tables Whisky Blades at HushThe venue is impecable, and the service was fantastic as well.  Our food was the main star though, and boy was it tasty.  We started with a crunchy on the outside, but soft and gooey on the inside Yorkshire Pudding’s to share.

I especially liked the side of whole cauliflower as well.
