This month’s silly rule: English wine bars not allowed to serve exclusive wines in small glasses

The Scandinavian monopoly markets don’t have a, ehrr, monopoly on silly rules…: Some English wine shops (e.g. The Sampler and Selfridges) have opened wine bars in connection with the shops to give the customers the possibility to taste some of the wines before buying. They have also sold some very exclusive wines by the glass […]

More restaurants and wine bars in Stockholm | BKWine Pick

Eriks Bakficka (Erik’s Back Pocket) Erik’s Back Pocket is not exactly next door to Eriks Gondolen so he must have big trousers. The Bakficka is close to the Narvavagen street in fashionable Ostermalm. Classic Swedish food (“husmanskost”) mixed with more unusual cooking (for example delicious gnocci). A decent wine list (but far from outstanding). Very […]

Eriks Vinbar, Stockholm | BKWine Pick

Eriks Vinbar (wine bar in Swedish) is at ground level in the same building as the luxury restaurant Eriks Gondolen (from which you have a view over all of Stockholm), close to Slussen. It is a small and cosy place, really a bar and not a restaurant even if you can have some small things […]

Terreno Wine Bar, Stockholm | BKWine Pick

Perhaps the most important reason to visit this wine bar is to see how it functions. It built around an original self-service concept: First you have to buy a “wine card”, like a pre-paid phone card. then you go to the “dispensing machine”, insert your card, push the button for the wine you want (don’t […]

Midi Vins, Paris 6 | BKWine Pick

Newly opened wine bar and bistro in a renovated traditional café. Original tables made from old champagne “pupitres”. Very good value menu with starter, main course and dessert from 21 euro. I had an excellent salad with crayfish to start with followed by a perfectly grilled “bavette” (steak) with potato gratin. The fish was also […]

L’Ecluse, Paris | BKWine Pick

There are six L’Ecluse wine bars in Paris, and that it is a “chain”, albeit small, can by some be seen as a negative. But in this case they are ambitious and focused, without being complicated or sophisticated. They also have excellent opening hours, which can be particularly good for overseas visitors who are not […]

Le Domaine Léopold, Paris 1 | BKWine Pick

This is a very nice wine bar/restaurant on the already restaurant dense rue Leopold Belland in the 2nd, just a stone’s throw from the market street rue Montorgueil. In summer time they have a big and calm ‘terrasse’. The menu is short but with a good selection of typical wine bar food made from fresh […]

Le Café du Passage, Paris 11 | BKWine Pick

Very pleasant. Exceptional wine list, cool jazz, mix of English club atmosphere and Italian design (owner is ex-interior designer). Outstanding selection of Rhone and southern France. Small things to eat. Also a small shop where you can buy to bring home even late at night! Say hello to Gerard from us!

Le Porte-Pot, restaurant Paris 5 | BKWine Pick

A nice wine bar and wine shop in the centre of the Quartier Latin (Latin Quarter). It just opened in February (2005). Nicely decorated with a dominant red that contrasts with the old wooden beams. The choice at lunch is “today’s special” (served hot – all other dishes are served cold) (12€) and salads (8€), […]
