Cellar Gascon
© Ming Tang Evans

This Smithfield sliver of a wine bar is from the Gascon Connection stable, so is sister to Comptoir Gascon, Cigalon, Baranis and the Michelin-starred Club Gascon. As the name suggests, it's a group focused on the cooking of the Gascony region of France, and comes from Vincent Labeyrie and chef, Pascal Aussignac. 

The wine list goes big on bottles from across the South of France, with a particular concentration on the south-west. There are more than 200 in the cellar (many of which are sourced exclusively), with at least 20 different wines available by the glass. Monthly wine dinners offer the chance to sample at least four.

Food-wise, it's all about Gascon small plates. Expect dishes ranging from Toulose sausage with lentils, a signature duck burger and pine-smoked prawns with horseradish cream to crunchy beans with a chilli dressing and egg and caviar on toast. A selection of foie gras dishes also features.
