About Manhattan Grill

Steak restaurant Canary Wharf

What is it that makes the perfect steak? The breed of cattle? The choice of feed? The way it’s cut? You could talk about it until the bulls come home, so we set off on our very own steak odyssey.

Great Steaks. . . “and that’s no bull”

We sampled countless steaks to find the world’s ‘Best in Show’. And, after too many meals to mention, we struck culinary gold: the wet-aged USDA prime Black Angus from Creekstone Kansas, and dry-aged Scottish cuts from Inverurie – the birthplace of the legendary Aberdeen Angus steak. All served overlooking West India Quay and Canary Wharf.

These prime meats are individually cut and freshly cooked on our authentic Montague Broiler in our open kitchen. You’d be hard-pressed to find a better steak anywhere in London, let alone Canary Wharf.

Seating up to 40 people for dinner and 50 people for reception our dining room is sure to impress your guests with its fantastic views over West India Quay and out of this world culinary experience.

About the Chef

Damian Trejo

Originally from Mexico City, Executive Chef Damian Trejo spent 7 years in Poland before joining us and he previously worked at the Warsaw Marriott Hotel.

Chef Trejo’s inspiration to become a Chef came from his mother and “Grandpa” – as he calls him – who, although not a professional chef used to cook the most lavish seafood paellas for 500 people.

Before moving to Europe Chef Trejo’s first job was a grill chef at a steakhouse in Tabasco state, Mexico where the speciality was USDA prime beef seared to perfection on a 3-meter long charcoal grill in scorching summer heat. Since those early days Damian has served up too many tons of steaks to count and travelled around the world preparing meals for celebrities including President Obama and the Dalai Lama.

Full of enthusiasm for great meat cooked to perfection … Damian moved to London with his family to carve into the London steakhouse scene at the Manhattan Grill, in Canary Wharf.

Chef Trejo has a passion for fuss-free chef-crafted food using quality seasonal ingredients. He inspires his team to deliver the classic steakhouse experience to all of Manhattan Grill’s guests… and that’s no bull.
