"VERY GOOD"

The “brilliant new restaurant” from sommelier Xavier Rousset (ex-Texture) has given Marylebone’s bon viveurs yet another reason to celebrate. Seated at the smart counter and marble-topped tables, they can delight in a list featuring over 50 Champagnes, 20 interesting by-the-glass offerings and knock-out vintage bottles, with the chance to steer future picks during monthly tastings. The “unpretentious” neighbourhood vibe demands great food, and chef Ben Mellor obliges with a “terrific” menu based on prime ingredients: from stuffed courgette flowers or slivers of raw lamb dressed with fresh Amalfi lemon and mint to ‘Med-on-a-plate’ octopus with potatoes, olives and tomatoes, readers “absolutely love it”. An approachable £15 lunch deal brings the dish of the day, a glass of wine and tea or coffee, though punters in more extravagant mode can also share a côte de boeuf with confit new season garlic, red wine jus and new potatoes. To finish? Cheese and wine, of course.

Not quite a straightforward wine bar, not quite a restaurant. Good wine list but difficult menu, the sort where you really have to scan for something you want to eat. Lots of 'as a starter, as a main pricing' which tended to highlight a lack of value. For example the fish offering was salmon or soft shell crab, fine if you happen to be in the mood but salmon is usually where I go when I've run out of ideas. I like a restaurant where there are two dishes you really want, here none of us was really delighted and I ordered extra bread, worried that we would not have enough food.

Seeing as this is a wine bar, we spent some time with the very helpful and charming sommelier to choose a decent bottle of Burgundy, and then chose the food to go with it. A lovely fresh and flinty Meursault Grand Charrons worked a treat with the stuffed courgette flower, and burrata with heritage tomatoes. Main courses of scallops with peas and baby broad beans, and hake with artichoke barigoule were thoroughly enjoyed with sides of Jersey Royals and green beans with mustard dressing. The restaurant was pretty full and busy, staff were friendly and helpful and after desserts of lemon tart and cherry frangipane we went home happy.
