It’s polished, it’s chic, it’s packed with designer-clad South Enders swirling wine goblets and nibbling on pâté, it’s…a butcher’s shop? Yes, indeed—as well as a cosy soapstone-and-slate wine bar. Barbara Lynch’s culinary team stocks the display cases with every delicacy—from pig heads and whole hams to quail eggs and truffle butter—and fills the short menu with equally delicious, honest fare. House-made charcuterie and antipasti pair nicely with a selection of mostly European boutique reds. After a nosh, regulars often cross the street to B&G Oysters, also owned by Lynch, to complete their surf-and-turf crawl.
