Square Meal Review of Vinoteca Farringdon ?

‘Quick and easy, unfussy and unpretentious’, gregarious Vinoteca’s winning formula matches the oenophile virtues of a top-notch wine emporium with a penchant for smart brasserie cooking. Wine flights and by-the-glass selections are unmissable, and the full list of around 250 bins is stuffed with helpfully annotated bottles from every corner of the winemaking globe – although judicious food-matching suggestions are the mini-chain’s ’biggest USP’. British cheeses and European charcuterie are mainstays of the menu, but the regularly changing line-up runs from crispy confit duck, pear, orange and walnut salad (recommended with a glass of Weissburgunder 2011) to Cornish hake with cockles, arroncina beans, lemon and samphire – perfect with a Kumeu River Chardonnay 2007 on the side. Light airy interiors, funky lighting and retro posters create just the right mood, and the bill is always easy on the wallet.

Wine List Of The Year Finalist

It’s a perennial problem: you want to choose your wines by style, but your dining companion wants to peruse the list by country of origin. What do you do? Well, this list will keep both parties happy. The wines are split up in both ways (the former with full, helpful tasting notes), and with a wide spread of wines there should be something for everyone, however they choose to find it! And the tasting note ‘Yes. Lambrusco. And it’s bloody lovely.’ should win an award.

    vialaporte :: Vinoteca // Farringdon // London

    Filled with offices buildings, Farringdon might not be the first place you think of when it comes to choosing a restaurant for the weekend, but you’ll find it’s actually quite a smart move. With plenty of good places to eat, the weekday punters who crowd the area leave its restaurants deserted, tranquil and relaxing over the weekend. Vinoteca on St. John Street is a perfect example of this. On Saturday, the lights are low, the jazz is on and time flies by with a glass of something nice in your hand. While having a strong focus on their Spanish wine, they also serve-up some appealing food, which you should definitely hang-about to try...
