New Street Grill doesn’t shy away from superlatives. The restaurant’s beef is ‘the best beef available anywhere’. Other ingredients are ‘the best of British’. The wine list boasts ‘the very best reds’. And all of this in ‘the City’s oldest surviving warehouse’.

Any residual traces of imperial clatter and commotion in the former East India Company godown have been silenced by leather banquettes, heavy tablecloths and a general sense of contentment. Softly spoken and numerous staff wait on diners sitting in the warm glow of exposed light bulbs and the cool blue wash of hand-clutched BlackBerries.

It’s a slick operation, but then no less would be expected from a new D&D London venture, the restaurant group which owns, among many others, Skylon and the Blueprint Café. The menu seems aimed squarely at those in search of a deal-signing lunch or post-close-of-market dinner. It’s in the lobster, partridge, calf’s liver and bacon chop vein.

The ‘Kansas ranch, premium reserve black angus, corn fed, 40 day aged, USDA certified, 350g, Rib eye steak’, to which you can add a casual half lobster, lived up to its pedigree promise thanks to some well-handled treatment on the Josper grill – nicely browned outside and still pink within, tender and with the right level of resistance to demolition.

Perhaps the ‘New St Burger’ would have been more impressive if the competition in London wasn’t so hot right now – for £14, a seed-sprinked soft milk bun, some interesting tomato relish and a rather dense burger doesn’t cut the mustard any more. Sides include excellent triple-cooked chips in the requisite waxed paper-lined cup, gelatinous roast split bone marrow and cauliflower cheese or tomato salad.

Dining at New Street Grill certainly requires an appetite both for a steakhouse menu and an hour or two of the City lifestyle. Alternatives on the same Old Bengal Warehouse site are Fish Market, the Old Bengal Bar, and the wine bar called New Street Wine Shop.

New Street Grill (NSG) is the perfect venue for a Drunch AKA drunken lunch! NSG offer a brunch menu on the weekend that is 2 courses for £25 or 3 course for £30... plus add free flowing prosecco for and extra £15 and you are set!!! 

I organised a table for 15 people and the team were very accommodating, they even set us up in the courtyard for the ultimate alfresco dining in the London sunshine

I had the Blueberry Crumpet as a starter and the Steak Frites with triple cooked chips and Bearnaise sauce for my main. I skipped the dessert (mainly because i was busy drinking as much prosecco as I could), but my friends ordered dessert and it was equally delicious as the starter and main. 

Also did I mention the location? It is tucked away in a cobbled street directly opposite Liverpool station, so super central for your friends/guests to meet you. It is easy to find, even though you would walk past the street most days and never know this gem was there. 

I would highly recommend New Street Grill for group brunch bookings.

This is a very nice looking restaurant with a lovely courtyard (which is where we were seated as it was a lovely day)

I went for 2 courses of the brunch set menu (2 courses for £20 or 3 for £25). My scotch egg starter (see picture) was buried under rocket but was delicious once I found it. My medium steak was too rare to finish and I didn't like the chips, although my friend happily helped herself. I washed it all down with a very strong bloody Mary.

Overall everyone was happy enough with the experience but not overwhelmed. The service was a bit slow with a wait for menus and water. At one stage my friend's bottomless prosecco glass was empty, tsk.

More style than substance if you ask me, but I could be tempted back.


Went on a Sunday, brunch for 2. Really nice venue, nice staff. The £10 bottomless bloody marys and prosecco are great value. I managed to down 4 bloody marys and my friend's procecco glass was never empty. Wasn't so impressed with the food. Toastie reminded me of something a child would make (yes, I realise its a toastie), full English breakfast was slightly unpleasant, sticky toffee pudding was pretty much inedible. Fish pie main was good though. I'd say for brunch its great in most aspects, bottomless drinks are fantastic, but don't expect too much from the food.


I loved this place. My confit duck leg on red cabbage was cooked to perfection and his steak was wonderful too. Excellent service, lovely surroundings. Not cheap, but worth it.


I thought the food was ok - steak wasn't amazing but acceptable. Service was pretty poor - everything seemed slow. I felt the wine list was weirdly disconnected from the food. A steak for 30 quid (quite reaasonable really) with a wine list that ranged from 50 quid or so to over £1000? It didn't feel balanced.
