Trendy steakhouse serving up top cuts in a cool setting

Time Out Says

The arrival of STK JBR The Walk has been an exciting one for meat-lovers in the city. A global brand known for its top steaks and party vibe, the restaurant opened to much fanfare (albeit later than anticipated) last year at the Rixos Premium Dubai. And it’s safe to say it was worth the wait. With sister restaurants in London, New York and Miami, the uber-trendy brand fits well with Dubai’s dining scene.

The space itself is cool and moodily lit, with artwork adorning the walls and cherry blossom trees among the tables. It’s worth arriving early to grab a drink at the chic bar, too.

We take our seats in the main dining room – there’s also an outdoor terrace – and peruse the menu. Although the star of the show is the steak, there are also plenty of seafood and veggie dishes, such as butternut squash fregola.

To start off, we opt for the roasted octopus and a portion of tiger prawns. The giant, juicy prawns are delicious, but the octopus is overcooked.

When it comes to the steaks, there’s plenty of choice, and we go for a fillet and a sirloin. Both are perfect, but the fillet is standout – butter-soft with plenty of flavour. Sides are costly (Dhs42 for broccoli, gulp), and can quickly add up.

But with an upbeat and upmarket vibe – it’s one to dress up for – the room is far from empty throughout the night.

There’s no hiding the fact STK is expensive, though the food – octopus aside – is top-notch. However, there’s a ladies’ night deal at Dhs149 for two-courses and three free drinks, or a Friday brunch at Dhs499 with house drinks for more affordable options.

A second branch is due to open in Downtown Dubai later this year, and if it’s anything like the first one, we can’t wait.
