Date of Last Visit: Saturday, May 17
The Victim: K
The Damage: About £17 each
The Background: K is leaving me. She and A are going back to NY (Connecticut, actually) next weekend. I am DEVASTATED. I suggest a day out around town to some places K has never been before. We start at Broadway Market. Afterwards, we hit the British Museum for K’s first and last look at the Rosetta Stone (my second), and then it’s off to tea at Liberty and some fondling of Liberty’s household goods. I do love fondling the goods at Liberty.
With such a big day out, sustenance is necessity. K likes her steak. I’m glad we’re in Broadway Market because of her affinity for steak and my affinity for going somewhere I’ve never been before so I can pump up my London food blog.
The Entrance: Everyone is speaking Spanish but us. We’re the total gringos. To give K credit, she speaks some good Spanish. But she doesn’t break it out. I was kinda hoping for that.
The Food: We order two small filets and some empanadas. I think the empanadas are good. Cozy. But I am not falling all over myself over them. The steak, on the other hand, is a masterpiece. And I’m not a steak eater. K proclaims it one of the best steaks she’s had in the U.K., which is high praise. I also order a green salad, which ends up being a waste because both steaks are served with green salad. (I wish someone had warned me of that.) The steaks were also accompanied by some lovely nice big chunky white beans. Yum.
The Nice Bit: They have a lovely outdoor patio at Buen Ayre. It was pouring rain when we were there, of course, but I’d come back just for that.
The Verdict: Nice. Would have been better with some Malbec. 🙂
