M Raw, Bank
Nope, decadence isn’t just for December. Dating certain types requires a certain amount of (razzle) dazzle and sometimes you want something without that rustic charm that pop ups and gastro eateries are currently crazy for. M Raw is in the heart of the City. Filled with glass, dark wood and ideal date lighting, the place screams suits, sex and slinking off to the bar together after excellent food.
Guys, don’t get too carried away by the vast displays of Wagyu beef and the grill restaurant offering you every type of steak imaginable. Far more date friendly is M Raw which offers perfectly sized sharing dishes with ceviches, tartares, sashimi and small plates. Must-haves include the Yellow Fin Tartare, Scallops and Bacon Tiradito, and Cured Langoustine. Share a White Chocolate and Lavender soup for dessert, and giggle naughtily at the fact that the latter ingredient is supposedly soporific.
You’ve got to pull in this place. It’s a sure fire success route. There’ll be scores of single men (the place has a private dining room with a table football table and Xboxes) so you’ll instantly feel smug cosying up as a couple. Meet at Bank, walk there together and don’t worry about heading to your table early – the after work buzz builds up quickly so you’ll likely enter into an already fuelled up atmosphere. Drink with your meal and at the bar afterwards where you can easily spend another few hours. Get swept away here, it’s whispering seductively for you to do so.
The M should stand for MAN. This place yells testosterone – some girls may wince.
