Dollar Grills (pardon the pun) and Martini’s is an American themed restaurant located on the corner of Exmouth Market in the heart of Farringdon. Renowned as one of the best steak and burger restaurants in London, this swanky little venue oozes Vegas-style glamour with its boudoir red decor, large crystal chandeliers and mood lighting, and boasts a American-style menu that is simply unbeatable.
Though the interior of Dollar Grills and Martini’s is impressive in itself, the menu is out-of-this-world and includes a delicious range of gourmet burgers, Argentinean steaks, seafood and sharing platters, all of which are cooked to order in the open kitchen. The burgers are our fave (boring you may say but trust us, these are not like your average Maccas) and there are a whopping 14 to choose from, all of which are served in a glazed brioche bun with a touch of garlic, salad and the restaurants famous secret dollar mayo. This place has everything, from your cheeky cheeseburger through to ‘The Bellagio’ (baby spinach, parma ham, mozzarella, tomato chilli jam) and ‘The Lincoln’ (Montgomery jack cheese, pickled cucumber, fennel yoghurt, tempura onion rings), to die for! If you’re after something a little more upmarket the steaks are cooked to perfection and you have the choice of the rump, sirloin, ribeye and fillet, all of which are important from the US of A.
Once you’ve finished your meal you can slip downstairs to the hidden cocktail bar and treat yourself to one of the best Martini’s on this side of Manhattan. The vaulted cellar nooks, comfy leather sofas and warm red lighting is the perfect setting for a night sly night cap and will make you never want to leave. Cocktail-wise, you’re in for an absolute treat and dare we say it, the Pornstar Martini is the best cocktail we have EVER HAD! This incredible cocktail is a seductive mix of cariel vanilla vodka, passion fruit & vanilla sugar served straight up and accompanied by a small glass of champagne. If you don’t fancy a cocktail (crazy but ok), Dollar Grills and Martini’s has an extensive wine and spirit list so you’ll be sure to find something else to sip on whilst the DJ spins the night away.
