On 16th October this year, 110 Wines by the glass (in french, les 110 de Taillevent), the brasserie belonging to the famous French group Taillevent, officially opened its doors in the British capital.
Modelled on the iconic Parisian restaurant, 110 Wines by the glass serves 110 wines by the glass to accompany their choice dishes. Each dish on the menu is linked to different wines by the glass. For instance, you can sample highly prestigious wines like Haut-Brion, or choose a bottle from among the 450 listed in their cellar. This is a big first for the Gardinier family, owners of the luxury restaurant group Taillevent. Directed by the three Gardinier brothers, the Taillevent group owns a gastronomic restaurant in Paris, le Taillevent, which has two Michelin stars, les Caves de Taillevent as well as les 110 de Taillevent. It is this concept in particular that is being exported to London for the first time. With the same decor palette, materials and similar menus, 110 Wines by the glass in London could be mistaken for its Parisian counterpart. With a sophisticated décor in golden browns, trompe-l’oeil wooden panelling, green velvet curtains and soft lighting, the new restaurant should be highly popular with British and international clients.
Located in the former Coutts & Co Bank in Cavendish Square, 110 Wines by the glass has a few new tricks up its sleeve: there are vegetarian dishes on the menu, small producers are being promoted and they are including world wines, particularly from America, Spain and Morocco. The wine list has been put together by Pierre Bérot, Taillevent’s Cellar Master in Paris. In the afternoons the restaurant propose their Wine Time. This is a selection of five dishes, sweet and savoury, with corresponding wines. The wine-dish formula proposed by Taillevent should please everyone.
