Mon 20 Feb 2017 - Hawksmoor Air Street Monday Wine Club

Post by AHB » 00:08 Tue 21 Feb 2017

Three of us happened to be in the right place at the right time to take advantage of Hawksmoor's Monday Night Wine Club where you are charged £5 corkage for any bottle of any size. We had a lovely, deep Pommery Cuvée Louise 2002 Champage as an aperitif, a magnificent deep and powerful Gruaud Larose 1949 to accompany a perfectly cooked Porterhouse steak that was the ideal size to share between three, and then rounded the evening off with a bottle of Burne Turner 1904 vintage port.

A splendid evening with the food and staff being excellent. At £85 a head it is certainly more expensive than Davy's but made a very good alternative for a one off catch up.

Thanks to my two companions for the excellent company at short notice. Staying overnight in London could otherwise have been quite dull.

I had a teenie-weenie lamb steak with mushrooms and green stuff and a glass of whisky at home. It sounds like we had similar nights :confused:
