The Fleet Street branch of a high-quality trio of wine bar/restaurants, equally good for food and wine
An abundance of wood and soft lighting give this City branch of the three-strong 28°-50°group a low-key, almost rustic feel. It’s a type of place you wouldn’t be surprised to find in Paris. Wine bars are often a funny hybrid of bar and restaurant: are you ordering food with your wine, or wine with your food? This place does it both ways, offering both proper meals and bar snacks of refined pedigree, including cheeses from La Fromagerie. While you can certainly splash out a barrelload on vino if you wish to (the ‘Collector’s List’), the ordinary list offers loads of interesting stuff for under £30 a bottle – and much of it by the glass, including a 75ml measure for those just wanting a taste.
