You have two questions to ponder when you enter Le Relais de Venise, or l’Entrecote as it’s generally known: what would you like to drink and how would you like your steak cooked??? It’s good to come prepared with answers since the waitstaff aren’t the most patient bunch – don’t be surprised if the bill arrives in tandem with your last bite of food. On the plus-side for busy diners, this is the fastest steak and chips you’re likely to get this side of Calais. You start with a mixed leaf salad served with a tangy mustard dressing and bread before moving on to the main event: Steak Frites, l’Entrecote style. That means you get half of your meal in the first round and the other half in the second round – yes you heard it greedy guts, this is a double sitting!!! You know they must be doing something right, because this place has spread from Paris to London to NYC. In London, the Marylebone branch remains a firm favourite, but the City and Canary Wharf spots are big hits for business lunches. The only problem: no reservations. Go figure.
