Avenue

avenueOf all the D&D restaurants, Avenue is the one which has championed Coravin the most. Following its relaunch in 2014, it was also one of the first restaurants to adopt the device.

As part of the D&D stable of restaurants, Avenue is always going to have a deep well of wine options to draw from. The venue’s American theme is emphasised by a canny theme of the Judgement of Paris – the revelatory 1976 blind tasting in which Steven Spurrier pitted some of the most celebrated wines from France against wines from a selection of boutique producers in California – and in which the Americans came out on top.

The list takes this story as its starting point. Embrace the theme and dip into wines from Heitz Cellar or Ridge; Pinot, Cabernet and Chardonnay from the US and France are naturally well covered. Wines are listed according to grape with section for ‘Other Distinguished’ whites and reds from less common grapes.

More than 20 wines are available by the glass, including a nice little selection of ‘Reserve’ reds available as 75ml or 125ml – giving diners the chance to dabble in, for instance, San Andreas Fault 2012 from Hirsch Vineyards, a Château Clarke ’89 or Viña Tondonia ’94. Avenue is also trialling wines on tap, and it’s good to see decent drops starting at just £5 for a 175ml glass.

There’s also D&D’s Mondays Love Wine promotion to tempt you out at the beginning of the week – with a selection of wines available at retail price flagged up at the top of the list.
