Skirt is fa­mous for its steaks, but the con­cept has evolved to in­clude mod­ern Euro­pean dishes with an Asian ac­cent. Re­sist the urge of snack­ing on the ad­dic­tive breads and save space for grilled king prawns, topped with zesty chimichurr­i sauce that en­hances the prawns, rather than over­pow­er­ing them. The Hokkaido scal­lops, browned on the out­side and juicy in­side, are perched on an earthy sprout purée, paired with pick­led sea­weed for an acer­bic fin­ish. Meats should still be on the agenda, and the deftly pre­pared full-blood wagyu steak is lean and suc­cu­lent, served with a side of gar­lic purée. Ser­vice is up to stan­dard, with the staff in­tu­itive to din­ers’ needs and sur­pris­ingly quick on their feet. The wine list com­prises the usual sus­pects from the old and new worlds, but with a few sur­prises, in­clud­ing se­lec­tions from Slove­nia.
