THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Titanic Restaurant Review

: The Titanic opened to such celebrity fanfare, and such emphasis was given to its fabulous bar, that the cooking was inevitably accorded third-class passenger status in spite of being captained by the great Marco Pierre White. But many have reported back that the cooking is consistently very good, and indeed it is. The menu reads like a collation of the most popular items from the top-twenty London restaurants from the last three decades. It offers fourteen starters, fifteen main courses dishes that encompass a vast array of styles and cuisines, including Spanish, French, and Moroccan, whilst the last words of the captain of the Titanic are ironically quoted at the bottom of the menu: ’Be British’. There is obvious glee at the inclusion of updated versions of prawn cocktail, macaroni and cheese and Black Forest gâteau. Marco Pierre White’s joke even extends to the infamous burger, with a steak haché à la McDonalds---and it’s about as good as a burger gets. The bar, which dominates the room, is hugely popular in the evenings, so beware. The wine list is extensive, reasonably priced and well-chosen.
