SquareMeal Review of
Champagne + Fromage Brixton
In contrast to the upscale Covent Garden original, the second branch of Champagne + Fromage keeps humbler company among the greengrocer’s stalls, butchers and shops selling pots and pans on Granville Arcade (aka Brixton Village). Occupying what was a Caribbean grocery, the site operates as a shop and wine bar serving an inspiring range of small-grower fizz alongside Gallic cheeses, charcuterie, tartines and upbeat seasonal specials. You probably won’t recognise the names on the Champagne labels, but with weekly by-the-glass selections and knowledgeable staff on hand to talk you through every intriguing bottle, you’re bound to discover something new. All the fromage and fizz will also be available to take out.
