London, UK

Stacks of records and the odd succulent make up most of the decor at this stripped-back wine bar and dining counter in hip Hackney. This minimal approach also extends to the food offering. A streamlined, single-sheet menu of daily changing small plates is the perfect companion to interesting, low-intervention pours. Think a daringly simple chicken katsu sandwich, grilled green asparagus with brown butter and cuttlefish linguine. With their preference for dungarees and black t-shirts, the staff may look laidback, but they reveal an impressive depth of knowledge when probed.
