LEROY, LON­DON

The own­ers of the el­e­gant, edgy and Miche­lin-starred El­lory have now moved on to this more low-key venue. Start your evening with a glass of or­ange wine and a plate of Padron pep­pers in the light, airy Shored­itch space, cre­ated by Bri­tish de­signer Fred Rigby (leroyshored­itch.com).

ALCHEMILLA, GLAS­GOW

Pull up a stool at the coun­ter­top in this con­tem­po­rary new tapas bar, named af­ter the herb oth­er­wise known as ‘lady’s man­tle’. It only serves sus­tain­ably-sourced nat­u­ral wine, and food ranges from a sim­ple saucer of fresh an­chovies in olive oil to re­fined dishes, such as pi­geon, pis­ta­chio, dates and herbs (thi­sisal­chemilla.com).

BRIGHT, LON­DON

The team be­hind Clap­ton’s leg­endary nat­u­ral wine shop and bar, P. Franco, has opened a sib­ling bar with more ta­bles. Step in­side for a glass of some­thing ‘friz­zante’, cold and chem­i­cal-free – of­ten poured from bot­tles with la­bels so beau­ti­ful they could be hung on a wall – and a plate of grilled prawns (brightrestau­rant.co.uk).
