Wine List Confidential: Bubbledogs

20th September, 2017 by Niall Penlington

Founded in 2012, Bubbledogs offers a Champagne list bristling with grower Champagnes.

Considering the margins applied to the wines, it is probably the best place to drink grower Champagne in London, a true Who’s Who of great producers that would grace the finest Michelin-starred tables in town: Larmandier-Bernier; Egly-Ouriet; Georges Laval; Laherte-Frères; Benoit Lahaye; Vilmart; Chartogne-Taillet; Francis Boulard; Christophe Mignon – and so it goes on.

Billed as a ‘Champagne and hot dog specialist’, this quirky restaurant is the brainchild of restaurateurs Sandia Chang and her husband, James Knappett (who is also the chef behind the pair’s Michelin- starred offshoot Kitchen Table, located at the back of Bubbledogs).

Those who may want a glass of wine can request something, but it would be churlish (and foolhardy, given the friendly margins) to drink anything other than fizz at this restaurant.
