The week in pictures

On Wednesday, we hopped on the Jubilee line to Mayfair.

If there’s one thing we will brave central for, it’s excellent food and gorgeous wines, so when the invitation to the opening night of Mercato Mayfair came through, we simply had to scope it out.

Mercato Mayfair, housed in a Grade I listed church, is the latest street food market to crop up in London after a £5 million refurb from. It is Italian food specialist Mercato’s latest outpost in the city, having already opened a hugely successful marketplace in Elephant & Castle.

Spread across four floors, there are dedicated areas for cheese, deli produce and wines, while the market will also host events, workshops and classes in the vaulted basement.

Andrea Rasca, founder and CEO (the man with the microphone), has opened markets in the U.K. and Italy, and is now looking to the US and Japan for new sites, each offering food from a range of cultures, produced organically.

    The Sommelier does not carry a bottle of Romanee Conti…..
    And the colour of the wine in the glasses does not look like a 1978 Burgundy….
