Hot new London restaurant openings


We’re delighted at the emergence of an increasing number of new restaurants where wine is given equal if not top billing to food. One such newcomer is Sapling in Dalston, where the food is curated to pair with the ever-changing wine list.

Founded by former dairy farmer Bob Ritchie, Sapling’s sommelier is the aptly named Dan Whine, a former Liberty Wines man who has also worked under Gordon Ramsay. Whine’s list focuses on organic and biodynamic drops from boutique producers and shines a light on grower Champagnes.

Some of the stars from the list will be on pour in small measures via Coravin. But what of the food? I hear you cry. You can tuck into gooey gougères with smoked cods roe; Scottish langoustines blanketed in lardo; Jersey Royals with monk’s beard and pangritata; and Medjool date pudding with pistachio crème anglaise.
