It’s been a while since we hit up Mac & Wild restaurant, Fitzrovia and we have no idea why it’s taken us so long! For the past two years or so this award winning meaty hangout brought to London by street food sensations The Wild Game Co has been taking guests on a journey to the Scottish highlands, enjoying the finest wild venison, game and seafood in a rustic setting.
The simple concept proves that quality of good food far out weighs novelties. Quietly making it’s mark, it has gained such popularity and demand it opened another in the City end of last year.
Staying true to their roots, Mac & Wild’s dynamic team have fun cooking and promoting modern British game and seafood. All of the meat is sourced and then butchered with care by Andy Waugh’s (Founders) family’s game-butchering business, which has been in existence for over 30 years.
We can never resist a good old steak when we do visit, their melt in your mouth rib-eye is sublime and a must. Very reasonable price wise too. You can tell the restaurant takes pride in what it serves and it serves it exceptionally well. Their burgers are one of the best out there.
Meaty lovers – next time try the new Mince on Toast venison mince, toasted sourdough & watercress. Veggie’s and Pescatarians can rejoice too, (if they can put up with the fur and meat focussed pics all around the joint) there’s a host of new arrivals to suit all, Goats Cheese & Beetroot Terrine – red & candy beetroot, pickled heritage carrots & radishes, toasted walnuts & croutons, Pappardelle With Mushrooms & Barwhey Cheddar, Steamed Scottish Mussels served in an Arbroath smokie skink – smokies, shallots, white wine, parsley & crusty bread, Balvenie Smoked Mackerel -house cured & smoked mackerel, radish & chive oil and Wester Ross Salmon Salad Poached salmon, Jersey Royals, broad beans, mint, rocket & baby gem lettuce.
Mac & Wild also have an excellent whisky collection for the brave hearted to enjoy as well as a delicious range of cocktails.
We’re already planning that next trip, maybe we’ll check out the City branch next…
