SquareMeal Review of
The Fulham Wine Rooms
Treading the same oenophile path as its Kensington sibling, this handsome venue puts down a serious marker with 48 selections offered by the glass – thanks to an Enomatic system. If drinking's on your mind, head to the bar, bag a stool, purchase a 'wine card' and get stuck into the line-up of global vintages – with perhaps a few tapas plates on the side. Alternatively, the brick-clad dining room provides a relaxed setting for some rather sophisticated cooking, with suggested wine matches alongside each item on the evening menu: a glass of Sicilian Arianna Occhipinti Bianco with crab cakes and smoked chilli jelly; a 1er cru Chablis Domaine Billaud-Simon with sea bream, pak choy, oyster mushrooms and saffron sauce; a Luddite Shiraz 2008 (from the Cape) to complement ibérico pork presa and romesco sauce. Brunch is a good shout at the weekend, and regular wine events are a big draw.
