Steak favourites Gaucho are kickstarting their new premiere season with the slickest man on the silver screen. Bond is returning full-force when Spectre is released nationwide on 26th October and what better environment to gasp at his bravery/heroism/good looks (delete as applicable) than Gauchos slick monochromatic restaurant at the O2.  A Belvedere Vesper Martini masterclass will start the day before a two-course meal with Argentine starters and, yep, no surprises here, steak.
