This week we're seeking out the finest salads in London. Is there somewhere near you that dishes up a wonderous bowl of the stuff? Answers in the comments...
Kensington Wine Rooms
This Kensington restaurant and wine bar is one of three London spots from a group specialising in all things wine. Here you can sample more than 40 wines by the glass, as well as more than 150 bottles, from worlds old and new. There's a pre-pay card system in place (a bit like an Oyster card), with wines by the glass are served from Enomatic wine dispensers, with pour sizes including 25ml, 125ml and 175ml. Wines come with detailed notes and are organised by helpful headers such as 'heavyweights', 'crisp & dry' and 'aromatic'. A number of natural wines are available, too. There's a European slant to the food menu, with options ranging from foie gras with onion chutney and brioche, tuna tartare and scallops with cauliflower purée, pancetta and samphire to char-grilled racks of lamb, fillet steak with hand-cut chips and aubergine and mozzarella ravioli with cèpes, pine nuts, baby red chard and parmesan.
Venue says: “We love wine and all that’s enjoyable around wine: good food, good friends and good conversation.”
