- ‘Despite hostile reception from UK critics and box-office disappointment, this is quite hearty, suety, meaty British fare - if you can get through the hefty side-orders of modern / American corn and cheese.’
- ‘‘I try to make them picture-perfect,’ Ken Stevens said, and they were: row upon row of 12-day-aged top sirloins, Tbones, rib eyes and porterhouses, blood-red and juicy, their suety white edges trimmed just so, with flecks and veins of marbled fat guaranteeing the locked-in flavor that is one of the most famous of American tastes.’
