Ground zero for next-wave wines, sharp share plates and fine times.
It’s the ease of everything. There’s the space, little more than a cosy box of a room, with classic bentwood chairs, a blackboard, a communal table a wine fridge and some outdoor seating. There’s nothing more, nothing less than is required. It’s the menu, a beguilingly small affair, that understates the flavours on the plate, with dishes such as “white beans” coming adorned with only olive oil and lemon zest, but packing a flavour punch more fancy restaurants can only dream of. It’s the drinks list, put together by a team who know that natural wine is more than a movement, it’s about flavour and pleasure, not just the latest and the most ‘interesting’. This is the wine bar you’ve been looking for, where ego has no place, where comfort is found in perfectly pink duck breast atop grilled radicchio and a perfect match in the glass. Small wonder it fills to the brim nightly.
