Next I have the Spanish striploin. It is firmer, but as I cut into it, there is a stunning pink colour that meets my eye. Notwithstanding the gorgeous low lighting of the restaurant, I can still marvel at its colour. I bite into it and am struck by a fuller flavour. The dry ageing has given it a very intense beef taste. A bit more chewy, but the flavour compensates!
To end the evening, I have a glass of Remy Martin VSOP Cognac. Sipping slowly, I look at the menu again. In the last few weeks I have been able to see the extent to which beef is over priced in the city, obviously market driven. There is a tendency among many guests to associate excellent beef with spending a lot of money. The Park Bar & Grill illustrated to me that you can have really top class beef without spending over the odds prices. This has also been my discovery at a couple other places in the few couple of weeks. What makes this restaurant even more noteworthy is that it is part of the Park Hyatt, so you are getting affordable premium beef in an ultra stylish but relaxed setting. Of course, there are not many restaurants that are so adept at serving fine dishes which originate on both land and in the sea. The Park Bar & Grill is one of a few!
