All seems calm. St John Street, Clerkenwell. But there’s something bubbling away behind the scenes. Car chases, mystery, action… and ‘Gotham city police station’. All directed by Christopher Nolan (of the massively successful Inception). So bat fans, it’s time to check out Gotham’s finest. You might not catch a glimpse of the Dark Knight himself, but as I sink a spoon into one of the temptingly gorgeous cheese soufflés with a glass of Merlot at hand, I wistfully smile to myself. Forget Batman, I prefer our local food heroes. Sitting right amongst the buzz of the action, behind our trademark green canopy and wine barrels, keeping an eye out for Mr Bale et al on one of their breaks, I look forward to the movie release and will always remember, in the wise words of his super onscreen lady friend Rachel Dawes, “It’s not who you are underneath, it’s what you do that defines you”.
What are you going to do tonight? (eccentric billionaires welcome)
We’re incredibly proud to announce the opening of our first Bistro du Vin in London. Not only is this our first foray into the big city, but it’s the first Bistro du Vin of its kind. We’re thinking all the Bistro taste, style and classic dishes you know and love from your visits to Hotel du Vin in the heart of Clerkenwell.
Over the coming weeks prior to the big launch we’ll be featuring pics of the construction and general paraphernalia surrounding this exciting step for the du Vin brand.
If you want to check it out yourself in person on location the construction work is currently taking place on the former Eastgate Inn. To get there alight at the Farringdon tube station take a left on exiting and walk up the hill passing a plethora of bars and the obligatory Starbucks on your left. At the end of the road you’l see the majestic Smithfield Market , turn left then left again at Pret. Cross over to the other side of the road, walking past St. John’s restaurant and we’re on the right hand side.
We think London is ready. Are you?
