Martin Williams’s duo of glossy ‘gastro-playgrounds’ (that’s what they call themselves) in the City and Victoria combine no-expense-spared, Miami-esque design with a top-of-the-range assortment of grills which incorporate non-beef options but go large on luxurious steaks, including top USDA, Kobe, and Wagyu cuts and with meat sourced from Somerset to Argentina. Feedback was limited this survey (both branches are in office-dependent locations) but all of it was very enthusiastic. The Twickenham ‘bar and grill’ is a more casual outlet, and in late 2021/early 2022, a further branch will open in Canary Wharf, occupying the ground floor of the 58-storey Diamond Building, serving a menu of surf ’n’ turf, split into four distinct areas; ‘Smoke’, ‘Coal’, ‘Wood’ and ‘Ice’.

Martin Williams’s glossily-glam steakhouses have a touch of Vegas-glitz to their ritzy design, and particularly win nominations as impressive venues for business, boosted by the range of top-quality meat (the highest grades of USDA, Wagyu and Kobe beef) and an extensive wine selection. Since the top man returned to rescue Gaucho as CEO, however, some reporters feel “it’s lost its way since the wonderful early days”.

With their “clubby”, “dark” decor, Martin Williams’s Vegas-esque steakhouses can “feel like they’re trying too hard to be cool”. For more reporters, though, they are “an expensive but guilty pleasure” with “perfectly executed steak”. Change may be afoot, because, as of September 2018, Williams is no-longer the ‘ex-Gaucho CEO’, but has returned back to that post to turn around the chain he headed for many years. Where this will leave this project remains to be seen. Top Tip: “excellent deal with free-flowing Prosecco”.
