From Cavendish Square to Hampstead Heath
Saturday, May 13th , 2023
110 des Taillevent in Cavendish Square serves fairly classical French food, with dishes like beef tartare and pear tarte tatin. The food is a capable enough, but what is more interesting is the wine list. Not only is the selection huge, with getting on for two thousand separate labels, but the markups are unusually low by London standards. If you move up the price point then you will find many, many wines below their retail price, in some cases far below their market value. If you are a wine lover with a bit of money then it is like being a kid in a candy store.
The Bull and Last is a gastropub in Kentish Town, situated near Hampstead Heath. It serves pub classics like haddock and chips, but also slightly more ambitious dishes. It has particularly good service and a nice view out over the greenery of the heath.
