The little sister site to gourmet destination Galvin La Chapelle next-door offers a simple but dependable menu of well-priced, French-biased wines to complement French and Italian café food.
Put together by Galvin group sommelier and wine buyer Andrea Briccarello, the one-page list offers a whistle-stop tour of classic French wine regions, but more interestingly for the value-conscious will be the section of wine on tap – of which Briccarello is an enthusiastic adopter.
Try a biodynamic Cahors Malbec or a fresh, fruity Refosco from Veneto in 125ml or 175ml glass, or 500ml or 1l pot (there are five wines on tap to choose from). And, while you’re on a roll, why not go for a HOP special ‘Luxe Dog’ gourmet hot dog too?
