Flat Iron to celebrate 10 years in business with 10th site opening

In spring 2022, London's Flat Iron will open its 10th restaurant, which will be situated opposite The Young Vic on the The Cut in Waterloo.

The new opening marks a milestone ten years since the original Flat Iron launched as a pop-up above a pub in the backstreets of Shoreditch.

The short but considered menu will continue to champion the signature ‘Flat Iron’ steak, taken from the feather blade cut, alongside classic Flat Iron sides such as beef dripping chips, creamed spinach and roast aubergine with tomato, basil and mozzarella.

Specials will include other cuts, carefully selected according to availability, as well as a new burger from Head of Beef, Fred Smith. No Flat Iron visit will be complete without their complimentary soft serve chocolate ice cream, made with milk and cream by the Estate Dairy and Original Beans’ Cru Virunga chocolate.

The charming triple-shop-fronted site, designed by Clare Nash and Applied Studio’s founder Patrick Abrams, draws inspiration from traditional dining rooms and Victorian butcher shops. Reclaimed oak floors, Victorian tiles, antique furniture and timber panelling will create the familiar, warm atmosphere of Flat Iron whilst giving this restaurant a unique look and feel.

For those looking to enjoy a meal al fresco, a large terrace will spill out in front of the restaurant, just in time for the warmer spring weather, perfect for sipping on Flat Iron’s homemade house fizzes and cocktails.

Founder Charlie Carroll said, “It seems like yesterday and a lifetime ago that I was in that tiny pub kitchen in Shoreditch slicing the very first steak for the very first Flat Iron guest. I am excited and proud that almost a decade later, the dream has come so far and we are now opening our tenth restaurant.

'We still love to find historic and characterful buildings and to work with passionate craftspeople, enhancing what is there already and giving spaces a new lease of life. The Cut should be a beautiful restaurant and I look forward to welcoming friends new and old.'
