The Collection relaunches

The Collection on London’s Brompton Road has relaunched with a Champagne bar, pop-up retail space and an innovative approach to wine list presentation.

Continuing a current London trend, the restaurant will host a series of pop-up retail stores, collaborating with jewellers, designers and artists, who will be given space to showcase their collections.

A mezzanine floor carries the Pommery Champagne Bar, where guests can taste their way through a series of Champagne flights. At weekends The Collection will serve up Champagne brunches.

The 80-bin wine list has been sub-divided into stylistic categories, with a number available by the glass or carafe.

Whites appear under headings including “The Miner’s Collection” for mineral-driven white wines, “The Gardener’s Collection” for fruity or herbaceous whites, and “The Baker’s Collection” for richer, buttery whites.

The reds are broken down into “The Forester’s Collection” for leafy styles, “The Greengrocer’s Collection” for bright fruit-driven wines and “The Butcher’s Collection” for fuller, meatier listings.

Within these parameters, the list offers a mix of familiar styles such as Chablis and Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, big ticket classics in the form of Vincent Girardin’s Puligny Montrachet “Les Folatieres” 2007 or Château Gruaud Larose 1990, as well as more adventurous wines, including a Cretan Kotsifali/Syrah blend and an Aglianico from Southern Italy.

Meanwhile, executive chef Alex Fanzola has put together a menu built around Mediterranean cuisine, a theme reflected in the cocktail list, which incorporates ingredients such as rosemary syrup and muddled Spanish grapes.

The Collection is open from 10am-midnight, seven days a week.
