The Grill on the Market is situated right by Smithfields in Farringdon pretty much next to The Bird of Smithfield.
Lovely large bar area and modern interior in the restaurant with comfortable booths. I luckily had a membership card which offered 50% off food (apart from 3 slightly more expensive dishes) including starters, mains and desserts.
We had the sharing starter to begin with, which had pulled pork balls, calamari, chicken skewers and sweet potato wedges and bread with chorizo butter.
I opted for the wagyu burger – I was not asked how I wanted it cooked, which I found slightly odd and then it unfortunately came out well done and crumbly. The manager handled the situation very professionally and offered a change of dish, as well as (with a slight prompt) a complimentary glass of prosecco.
I chose the duck special instead, which was lovely. My friend’s fillet steak was pretty good but still not one of the best I have tasted.
The venue has a lot of potential and it is worth going to for 50% off food and for a nice drink after work.
