Arbutus Opens New Bar

Today sees the launch of Michelin-starred restaurant Arbutus’ new bar – the cheekily titled Les Couilles du Chien – if you don’t know your French then Google it.

Leather topped hairpin stools will stand at the polished white stone bar which will stretch across the length of the bar. French Gray walls will be adorned with Keith Coventry artwork and a red neon sign of the bar’s name will rest against Dutch tile-patterned wallpaper.

The new bar menu is designed by Chef Patron Anthony Demetre and Will Smith, no not that one, will be matching each dish with a wine.  So you’ll find the the likes of warm pig’s head with spiced mayonnaise served with a glass of La Bota No 52, crisp boneless ‘label Anglais’ chicken wings with Texas ranger or just ‘a load of b*****ks’ (their name not ours) crisp lamb testicles with tripe with an organic Bobastrell from Murcia.

The Coravin (where wine can be poured without removing the cork) method will be used to serve the wine  by the glass from impressive bottles including the biodynamic Lion’s Tooth Chardonnay, New Zealand, Condreiu ‘Chaillet’ a Viognier from the Rhone Valley and Andromeda Pinot Noir by Devil’s Gulch Vineyard, California.  There are cocktails too and they’re getting creative, how about a prune negroni? Or a cocktail made with peas and basil infused vodka?

Les Couilles du Chien: Opens today, 63-64 Frith Street, W1D 3JW , www.arbutusrestaurant.co.uk
