55-61 Tabernacle Street, London EC2A 4AA
Named after Steve McQueen, considered by some to be the coolest star to grace the big screen, McQueen is a glamourous London restaurant and bar. Situated in the ultra fashionable Shoreditch, close to Old Street station, McQueen is just the ticket for lovers of vintage glamour and retro chic. Exposed brick walls, funky leather and fur style décor and huge leather Chesterfield sofas give the place a suitably masculine feel and cool framed black and white poster prints of Mr M himself adorn the walls.
The menu offers a well thought out ion of North American dishes where you might start with something like sautéed mussels with chorizo and saffron followed by a wild herb crusted venison fillet or aromatic baked sea bass with saffron infused parsnip, oyster fritter and courgette ribbons. The bar at McQueen, winner of the Best Bar Award 2010, serves up an extensive list of cocktails including the classic champagne cocktail and specials such as the “Thomas Crown” (rum martini with coffee and hazelnut) as well as a superb ion of shots and wines. Tuck into themed bites at the bar such as the Bulllitt chicken burger or The Great Escape hot wings.
McQueen fits in perfectly in its cool Shoreditch surroundings and has become a hot choice for both drinking and dining in this part of town.
