It’s a great time for wine bars in London at the moment. There’s St Paul and Weino BIB, both of which we loved, and now there’s a brand new one up in Walthamstow called Forest Bar + Kitchen. It’s from the people behind Forest Wines, also on Forest Road, which has been selling organic wines to the good people of E17 for a few years now. And now Forest Bar + Kitchen is giving locals a place to come and drink and eat around a big communal table with a short menu and, of course, lots of organic and biodynamic wines from small producers.
It’s only open Friday and Saturday nights at the moment, and the menu changes every week, but it could include the likes of a cheddar and kimchi toastie; mussels, ‘nduja and fried bread; braised pork belly with canellini bean mash; and dark chocolate mousse with salted caramel brittle. Yep we’ll see you there.
