There's definitely a sense of normality returning when restaurants start launching special dishes - and Flat Iron's new steak sandwich looks like it's worth emerging from lockdown for.
Designed by their Head of Beef (a title we aspire to), it was apparently inspired by a trip to Casa Julián de Tolosa in Madrid. After various versions, the sandwich they eventually landed on is one that's on soft glazed brioche, with a marbled bavette steak from West Scotland, slow-cooked sweet red peppers, Béarnaise sauce, lamb’s lettuce, freshly grated horseradish. It's then finished off with crispy fried batter, cooked in beef dripping - and they definitely had us at fried crispy batter.
It comes in at £10 and is available now at Marylebone and Covent Garden where they have terraces and will join the menu at all other Flat Irons on 17 May.
