Vinous Table, Italy: Piedmont

Antonio Galloni, Dec 2022

Guido Ristorante remains one of my very favorite spots in Piedmont. Food, service and hospitality are absolutely top-notch.

Readers visiting Piedmont should carve out the time to go to Guido at the Relais San Maurizio. The hotel is wonderful too, should you not want to leave. Andrea Alciati, Monica Magnani and the team at Guido are at the top of their game.

Neal Martin, Nov 2022

Wild Flor is an outstanding addition to Brighton’s dining scene. After years of coasting, Brighton is finally waking up to the fact that it can coexist with the proliferation of casual gastropubs and vegan eateries. It was refreshing to see a serious, thoughtful wine list whose accumulative costs are probably a little more than that 1996 Chambertin! I cannot wait to return.

Eike lived up to expectations – the food was just delicious and exhibited just the right amount of flair whilst keeping it “real”.

I cannot recommend Andrew Edmunds highly enough, especially those seeking a place to eat that is suffused with history and draped with charm, a bit rustic and yet serves delicious food accompanied by a trove of vinous treats.

Vinous Table: The Sportsman, Kent, UK

United Kingdom, Vinous Table

Neal Martin, Sep 2022

I first heard about The Sportsman not long after it opened from a local friend, and it had only taken a couple of decades to visit. Thankfully, it did not disappoint. This is cooking where the chef wisely takes a back seat and allows the ingredients do all the talking.

The trout and rabbit dishes served at the bistro.

Vinous Table: L’Espace PH3 Bistrot/La Pyramide, Vienne, France

France, Vinous Table

Neal Martin, NM

The hotel boasts two restaurants, the two Michelin-starred La Pyramide and a bistro, L’Espace PH3. On the first night, attendees convened at the bistro in order to mine its eye-boggling wine lists, and the following day, the second part of the Chambertin tasting was accompanied by a specially prepared menu in the flagship restaurant.

Vinous Table: Cornerstone, London, UK

United Kingdom, Vinous Table

Neal Martin, Sep 2022

Cornerstone is the kind of restaurant that I am seeking more and more these days: either waiting patiently for a Michelin star or recently in receipt of one, yet unburdened by the accolade. As a showcase for Tom Brown’s culinary skill, Cornerstone works perfectly.

Antonio Galloni, Sep 2022

With its seafood focused menu and bright décor, Bar Le Côte is a very welcome addition to the Santa Barbara wine country dining scene.

Cabotte plaice

Vinous Table: La Cabotte, London, UK

United Kingdom, Vinous Table

Neal Martin, Aug 2022

A small number of people, a small number of bottles, fantastic cuisine, first-class service and the usual lively cross-table banter – you could not ask for more. Prices are extremely reasonable within the current inflationary climate. If you are a Burgundy lover with time in London, then this restaurant has to be one of your first ports of call.
