Marylebone retains its crown as the chicest corner in London, with the arrival of Clarette. Counting Chiltern Firehouse, BXR and The Providores amongst its neighbours, the newly opened wine bar and dining room is in great company.
From the outside, Clarette maintains a grand appearance, with classic Tudor beams and stained glass windows. But step inside to be greeted by truly Pinterest-worthy décor from top to bottom – all brass fittings, navy walls and pink velvet seating.
It’s no wonder it has become a firm favourite with locals already – so arrive early or be sure to book to avoid disappointment.
First and foremost Clarette is a wine bar, so no surprises that their wine list is extensive and varied to suit all tastes. There are expert sommeliers on hand to guide you through the selection, and options starting from £4.50 a glass to cater for all budgets.
You can even ask for ‘low dosage’ if you are feeling particularly virtuous…
To compliment your wine, choose from dishes like charred cauliflower & tahina sauce, crab cakes & guacamole, grain salad, kale & feta cheese or braised octopus, olives, tomato & capers – all light on the carbs and heavy on flavour.
With romantic corners, multiple bars, ample seating and even a private dining room, Clarette can handle any occasion, so bump it to the top of your list for your next glass.
