M Grill, a 100-seat restaurant, is part of the same 15,000 square foot M empire, which also includes the eatery M Raw, a wine bar, a secret den for City boys, as well as (should they need them) sleeping pods. Unlike its neighbour M Raw, M Grill offers a predominantly meat menu, but this isn’t just any steak house. “For M Grill we selected six countries in the world that breed the best beef, and then chose a single cut from each,” says Martin Williams, former managing director of Gaucho and eponymous owner of M Restaurant. “The beef ranges include Onglet from France at £18, rump from Argentina at £19, Blackmoor Australian Wagyu Sirloin at £130 and Kobe fillet at £150.”
London has long been viewed as the epicentre of interior design excellence, and is indeed the reason that luxury interior designer René Dekker came here from his native South Africa more than two decades ago.
Because of its rich heritage Britain, and in particular London, has often been heralded as a place where creative talent is full of character, personality and, arguably, eccentricity. Its religious and regal history has lent itself to a strong background of design, and its tradition of exploration and international travel has brought an unrivalled cultural mix of product and ideas from all over the world to inspire the growth of the London interior design industry.
