Small wine bar serving cheese and other snacks in Soho
A new wine bar in the heart of Soho, La Fromagerie serves a small selection of high quality French wines and cheeses in a casual setting.
A neat little joint with a red wine paint job, the space is decked out with a small bar and couch and stool seating, with upcycled wine crates decorating the walls.
There’s no menu, only a small selection of varying wines – bottles of which are displayed on the wall – and a chalk board telling of cheese platters, pies and other snacks. We ordered a glass of E Guigal 2013 Côtes du Rhône and M de Minuty Rosé 2016 Côtes de Provence, and some Comté, brie and deep fried camembert.
The Côtes du Rhône was full bodied and fruity, pairing well with the nutty and salty Comté, whereas the refreshing and citrusy rosé cut through the pungent brie. The deep fried camembert was a little underwhelming and the bread that accompanied the cheese was stale in texture. It would’ve been nice to have some condiments with the cheese but the high quality means they hold their own.
It may seem like La Cabane lite but La Fromagerie is cute and does the job. It’s a welcome addition to Elgin Street and, never being one to say no to wine and cheese, I’ll definitely be returning.
