Most real Londoners will tell you to stay away from Leicester Square – unless you enjoy being harassed by club promoters. We however decided to give the square another shot and were pleasantly surprised when we stumbled upon Heliot Steakhouse. This alluring eatery –nestled in the Hipodrome casino– offers quite a few tasty options, as well as an impressive view on all the games.
We highly recommend that you start your meal with the beautiful seared scallops (£9) served with a sweet apple puree and pink grapefruit for that perfect acidic balance. As for mains, it’s all about the steak. Whether you’re more of a fillet or rib eye (£19) type of person, their USDA prime steak will get you drooling. And if you manage to leave a bit of room for dessert, the almond layered pastry served with mascarpone and summer berries (£6.50) is totally worth the bloat.
Not ready to call it a night? Check out the casino’s theatre for an entertaining experience or head to Lola’s, their sensual underground casino – where anything can happen.
