So when I got the chance to go to Champagne and Fromage a bistro in Covent Garden that does both cheese and champagne I was really looking forward to it. What better way to spend a Monday evening after work than eating cheese and supping champagne.
The shop from the outside looks unassuming but looks can be deceiving inside is a shop that reminds me of a true French fromagerie. If you are visiting London this really is a must.
The shop sells over 25 award winning Champagnes, so what better way to start our evening than sampling some.
We opt for a bottle of Champagne Philippe Dechelle Brut, which has 33% Chardonnay, 33% Pinot Noir and 34% Pinot Memier. But the Bistro also sells Champagne by the glass at £9 - £18.
The bistro has lots of lovely food on offer (menu) from cheese, charcuteries, tartinnes, salads, Foie Gras, snails and baked cheese.
For us the choice was easy we opted for cheese and cured meat boards (£8 each).
The shop offers over 30 soft and hard cheeses. For us the selection was easy we opt for Roquefort and Brie.
The Corsican cured meats are a delicious accompaniment to the cheese.
If you are looking for a hidden gem in the heart of London well this could be it. Champagne and Fromage really could be my new London secret, well that was until I shared it with you all.
We had a really lovely time.
Got a good London restaurant to share?
