Quality Wines

As if serving the best sandwiches at lunchtime and offering their cult confit potatoes to make at home wasn’t enough, the Quality Chop has now turned into an evening cave a manger since September: a few salvaged tables and chairs, the simplest kitchen kit, a large counter-wine display, vintage crockery and cracking bottles. Pure bliss.

Nick Bramham rustles up in all Mediterranean simplicity from the top grocery products on induction hobs: pretty radicchio and pancetta salad; Galician octopus, potatoes and paprika; fluffy veal and pork meatballs in a rich passata… Mop it all up cheerfully with the focaccia by candlelight, while ordering more of that ridiculously lush lardo batutto. Keep it natural on the wine side, by the glass or picking a bottle from the shelves, all cleverly sourced by Gus Gluck.
