It’s 110 as in 110 different wines available by the glass – the largest choice in France. Les 110 de Taillevent offers an intelligent updating of the brasserie centred round wine. With ten starters, ten mains and ten desserts and cheeses, and four wine proposals for each dish, mixing countries and colours and in four different price ranges, this is wine and food pairing made easy. Despite being in a smart business district, it’s also a happily democratic approach, with all wines available by the glass or half glass. Satisfying French dishes include sea bass carpaccio, oeuf meurette (egg poached in red wine), merlan colbert (whiting fried in breadcrumbs served with sauce tartare) and rack of lamb. Wines range from simple Loire Valley reds to Yquem, and discoveries like Ukrainian wine and rare port.
