Modern American Steak House
by Stephanie Brooks
Do you love a juicy steak with crisp golden fries, a side order of creamy spinach and a glass of good red? Silly question. A couple of weeks ago, that was the delicious order of the day during a trip to Copenhagen, courtesy of the good folk at the Modern American Steak House, or MASH.
Before its first restaurant opening in London last week, MASH invited a lucky few of us to sample their unique Danish take on the traditional New York-style steak house.
On the menu, meat is king. The dry-aged Danish prime beef was the most tender I’ve ever tasted, the béarnaise sauce it came with a rich, very naughty treat. Dessert – cheesecake with raspberry sorbet – was an unnecessary indulgence, but I wasn’t complaining.
As if the food and the Danish welcome at MASH weren’t enough, spotting René Redzepi, chef and co-owner of Noma, at the next table (the man at the helm of the world’s best restaurant is a regular, apparently), certainly gave this foodie a thrill.
Where was the best steak you’ve ever eaten? We’d love to hear your recommendations.
