These “refitted pub premises” are in their second year as a Marylebone wine bar, brought to us by a part of the family which owns world-famous claret, Château Margaux. Winning solid ratings for its “smart small-plates of French bistro cooking” and “great service” – it’s “all very nice, but too expensive” to attract much feedback… unless you’re tempted by a glass of 1999 vintage Margaux for £160.
This year-old Marylebone wine bar, owned in part by a scion of the family who own Château Margaux, has yet to win a huge fan base amongst reporters – those who have discovered it however award high ratings to its wine list and its menu of Mediterranean small plates.
Set in a chicly revamped Tudorbethan pub, this plush new Marylebone wine bar has an impressive pedigree – for example, one of the owners is Alexandra Petit-Mentzelopoulos, daughter of Corinne Mentzelopoulos, who owns Château Margaux! The focus is on the wines (with a whole page of the list dedicated to Margaux), and to offset them is a menu of Mediterranean small plates.
Clarette is a chic and stylish restaurant & wine bar split across three floors, offering a fine wining & dining experience in the heart of Marylebone.
Clarette is situated in one of London’s most vibrant and coveted locations - on the corner of Blandford Street and Manchester Street, housed in a wonderfully distinctive multi-storey building, jewelled with stunning stained glass windows.
With a vibrant and sophisticated interior, Clarette is a delightful place to explore wine and to enjoy French-inspired food.
The wine list includes countless exceptional wines by the bottle, and over 50 wines served by the glass including an immense Coravin range. Clarette boasts an extensive list of Château Margaux wines sourced directly from the Château and in pristine condition - which is no surprise as the inspirations behind the independent restaurant come from co-owner Alexandra Petit-Mentzelopoulos of the family behind Château Margaux, the prestigious First Growth wine estate in Bordeaux.
Alongside a magnificent wine cellar and fabulous food, personal service and attention to detail are what make wining and dining at Clarette so special.
|Wine per bottle||£40.00|
The food menu at Clarette is led by British Head Chef Aaron Ashmore – a MasterChef the Professionals Semi-Finalist. His menu is designed as the perfect complement to the wine and features refined modern European dishes, beautifully presented and expertly served.
Dishes change regularly to keep the menu both exciting and full of seasonal, quality ingredients. Signature dishes include the Comté & Truffle Beignets and Pulled Pork Croquettes, Lovage Emulsion.
There is a private dining room tucked away on the second floor featuring an impressive wine wall - perfect for an intimate and stylish, yet under-stated ambience. The Salon Privé accommodates up to 18 seated guests for lunch or dinner; or up to 30 for a reception or cocktail party – a perfect setting for a private celebration.
