Forget glassy interiors, sky-high eateries and 21st century bars. For this special dinner on 2nd July, the Bleeding Heart restaurant is taking it down, down to the Crypt in fact. But don’t let thoughts of cobwebs, gloom and dust put you off. The only skeletons in this closet are five delicious champagnes, from the Magnum-served 2000 and 2002 to the red grape Pinot Noir, to accompany this five-course Champagne Magnum Club dinner.
The Crypt at Ely Place isn’t your average horror location. Instead, expect to discover an atmospheric medieval venue that brings sophisticated modern dining to the era of romance. Indeed, with Vicomte Bernard de la Giraudiere, the director of France’s prestigious Laurent-Perrier champagne house and an old friend of the Bleeding Heart, on-hand to guide diners through the courses, this fairytale night will be certainly one to remember.
