Le Relais de Venise L'Entrecôte Porte Maillot
Situated at the center of the upscale residential village of Marylebone, Le Relais de Venise L'Entrecôte Porte Maillot flawlessly recreates the experience of the Parisian original, which has been serving steak frites in the Seventeenth Arrondissement since 1959. The snug dining room was designed with the brasserie concept in mind and features banquette seating, wooden tables, and paintings depicting scenes from Venice. Founder Paul Gineste de Saurs's legendary "secret sauce" accompanies each steak, and the hand-chipped frites are genuinely famous throughout the United Kingdom. The house red, Le Relais de Venise - Cotes de Bordeaux, goes brilliantly with the steaks (which are best-prepared rare.)
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
