Six of the best restaurants for Burgundy in London

Andrew Edmunds

Overall WLC ranking: 33

“The setting is a quaint old townhouse beside a shop of the same name specialising in English and French 18th and 19th-century prints and drawings.The atmosphere harks back to the ‘old Soho’ in this busy, bijou, romantic spot. The word ‘gem’ is bandied about all too loosely when it comes to London dining spots, but here we have the very essence of that word.

“Given space constraints, the wine list is surprisingly ample. Start with an £9.50 glass of Pol Roger White Foil Champagne, then fill your boots, perhaps with a bottle of Vincent et Sebastien Chereau Muscadet, which comes in at less than £25, or, if you are feeling particularly gregarious, a well-priced magnum of 2008 Chassagne-Montrachet (V&S Morey) for £140. There is a good range of Sherries and sweeties, too, including Austrian eiswein, Samos Nectar and 1947 ‘Port’ from Crimea.”
