When you think about it, it's incredible what the humble grape can produce and it's this eatery's mission to put lesser-known wines on the map. And they're never tastier when drank alongside some tasty European plates!
And just like their wine collection, the dining experience in their Islington branch is sophisticated from start to finish. Their art deco-inspired dining room is the picture of class, with turquoise velvet booths, understated wicker chairs and that signature Scandi touch with delicate handing plants and neutral colours. Step into their tasting room and you'll be blown away with their shelves upon shelves of gleaming bottles.
While you're drinking such remarkable wines, it makes sense to indulge in intricate and artful plates. To start, sample their innovative pairings, like the pork and fennel meatballs or seared octopus with roasted piquillo peppers and a dazzling grape vinaigrette. Alternatively, play it safe with some aubergine parmigiana or the king prawns with salty chorizo.
The star of the show in the bigger plates has to be the côte de boeuf that has been dry-aged for an incredible 35 days! For something lighter, opt for the whole seabass or roasted spicy cauliflower. And we're not going to attempt and describe the wine menu; it's akin to a religious text but mark our words, there's a glass from every corner of the world. In short, there's a humble grape for everyone!
