This modern day French brasserie is equal parts laidback and staid. With formal, plush, red couches dotting the sophisticated restaurant area and a casual lounge at the entrance, the ambiance is suited to any kind of mood. In fact, tailoring your food to your taste is what St Maxims is all about; its special stonegrill method in particular allows you to have your meat cooked on a piping hot stone. The tender cuts of wagyu and the succulent spread of seafood are some of the best the city has to offer, and the foie gras terrine merits special mention: served alongside spiced date chutney and melba toast, it’s worth its weight in decadence. Vegetarians also have a plethora of options at this gem of a steakhouse, like the creamy mushroom risotto and the hearty vegetarian casserole. If variety and choice are top of your list, then look no further than this gem of a steakhouse tucked away in the Kempinski Hotel.
