Everybody loves a good juicy steak. So it was no surprise that at the London launch of Kim Kardashian’s favourite restaurant and American institution STK, it was absolutely packed to the rafters. Julian McDonald and Sadie Frost were there to try their famous Wagyu beef sliders, as were JLS, Leah Weller and Graham Norton. After a couple of glasses of Champagne we were all taken to our individual tables where we each had personalised menus offering rib eye steak, mac and cheese, parmesan truffle fries, tuna tartare… erm, yum.
JLS boys Aston Merrygold and JB were on the next table to us with their other halves and spent the night diving into the cocktail menu and seemed super impressed with the selection of desserts they were presented with at the end of the meal – including chocolate peanut popcorn, toffee apples and marshmallow kebabs. Meanwhile Graham Norton couldn’t have looked more excited about the huge rib eye steak he had ordered.
After dinner Leah Weller took to the decks to DJ and everyone tried to burn off their mammoth meal on the dance floor.
What we ate: tuna tartar, pear and endive salad, Wagyu beef sliders, rib eye steak with mac ‘n’ cheese, spinach and parmesan truffle fries.
What we drank: Champagne.
