Steak of the Art - launch night

Hello there,

Last Thursday 18th February saw the launch of an exciting new restaurant in Southampton - Steak of the Art - and yours faithfully was lucky enough to be invited along to their launch night.

Now what makes this different to other restaurants? The clues in the name. Each restaurant has a gallery of artwork that not only brightens up your day but can be purchased too. For the Southampton launch, the Southampton Art Society was invited to display some of their works. What a great idea! For me, that's two of my most favourite things combined into one setting - good food and beautiful art. I couldn't wait to go along and see it for myself in person.

So the glad rags were put on and myself and the other half hit the town. The restaurant is in Ocean Village which is an area of Southampton that's really seeing some regeneration over the last few years. As you can guess, it's right on the waterfront with views over the harbour. It's an amazing place to have lunch at any time of the year.


As you walk in, you can really see the gallery effect, plenty of space to browse, sit and admire the artwork









We even had entertainment during the evening, first up was the caricaturist Picasso Griffiths  Now you're not likely to see any photos of my other half on this blog as he's very camera shy (or grumpy, you decide) so this is the closest you'll get to a pic


That's me on the right!

There was also a magician - who doesn't love a magician and this one was brilliant. Even close up we just couldn't see how he did any of the tricks (and we hadn't been drinking!).



The staff were kept busy keeping us all fed and watered with selections from the menu, these were so light and fluffy, we nearly fought over the last one...


Some of the seating areas were so unique - there's even a proper crows nest that you can book







There was also a beautiful side room for more private functions - perfect for that special party or even a small wedding reception?





What did I wear for the evening? My Lovedrobe dress which is turning into such a favourite. So easy to wear and comfortable too



Oh my goodness - look at that concentrating face! The bag is from the Limited Edition collection at Marks & Spencer

There's two other Steak of the Art restaurants - in Bristol and Cardiff. So if you're ever near any of these, I'd recommend a visit. We had a lovely evening and can't wait for our next visit! Thank you to Steak of the Art for inviting us to your launch.

Thanks for reading
