It’s probably just the bare redbrick walls that they have in common, but I quite like to think of this Fitzrovia bar and kitchen is a Cheers-style hangout for wine nerds.
‘Relaxed, friendly, a bit geeky’ is how The Remedy describes itself. There’s a clear aim to show the great bounty of characterful wines being made by small-scale, artisanal producers around the world.
It’s done in an entertaining way too – on the list, rosés are described as ‘Reds cavorting as whites’ and are followed by orange wines, described as ‘Whites emulating reds’. Champagne comes with an explanatory subheading that says simply ‘Yes’.
Whites are headed under ‘Quench’, ‘Cleanse’ and ‘Nourish’; reds as ‘Quench’, ‘Whet’, ‘Entice’ and ‘Feed’.
Much sympathy with natural and low-intervention winemaking is evident throughout the list, which is updated every week or two.
There’s a superb range of Pereira D’Oliveiras Madeiras, magnums of Testalonga and one of the most impressive lists of orange wine in London.
