Terroirs Wine Bar & Restaurant

5 William IV Street, Covent Garden, London, Edinburgh, WC2N 4DW
An excellent wine bar, particularly if your interest is in reaching beyond the generic French grape staples. The business is divided into two floors - a ground floor wine bar, full of posters & offering lighter dishes; and a basement for more serious dining.

They also offer a short seasonal menu of traditional regional dishes, cooked in a rustic style.

These are offered as 'Small Plates' and more substantial 'Plat du Jour' in the ground floor section. But dishes such as 'Pea & Sorrel Soup'; 'Champignons à la Greque'; 'Piperade Basquaise' and 'Duck Rillettes' set the style for the former.

'Braised Rabbit Shoulder with Tomatoes, Olives & Soft Polenta'; 'Roast Landaise Chicken with Chopped Livers on Toast, Artichokes, Wild Garlic Leaves & Roast Potatoes'; 'Boudin Noir, Fried Eggs, Broad Beans & Mousserons' and 'Gilt Head Bream with Heritage Tomatoes & Fennel with Cream' the latter.

A short list of desserts offers the like of 'Bitter Chocolate Pot' and 'Crème Caramel'.

The relaxed, friendly, service can become stretched to the point of cracking.
