Champagne + Fromage

A new French inspired shop-cum-bistro has just opened its doors in Covent Garden’s Wellington Street. Focal point is an over-sized fromagerie alongside displays of Champagne, cheese and charcuterie. Mismatched furniture and reclaimed materials – including bright red chairs sourced from Parisian bistros and old wine crates – add to the Gallic ambiance. C + F is all about ‘grower Champagne’ meaning that it’s sourced from only the smallest, most independent producers – and offers 25 varieties from its cellar. Nicknamed 'farmer fizz,' it’s made entirely by producers in their very own vineyards, as opposed to blending together grapes from different […]
