Dishes such as Dexter beef tartar, chicken liver scarpinocc and spider crab bigoli meet their match in the sensational wine selection chosen by sommelier Ian Fitzpatrick.
The newcomer’s complementarity flows through to the music, powered by Toby Hatchett’s beautifully designed speakers.
Full menu Tues-Sat 5pm – 10pm, with snacks available until midnight.
