Vinous Table: Osteria Le Logge, Siena, Italy

Vinous Table, Italy: Tuscany

Antonio Galloni, Jun 2023

Tuscany can be challenging for dining because so many places cater to the tourist crowd, and few establishments take proper care of their wines. Readers visiting this corner of Tuscany absolutely owe themselves a visit to Osteria Le Logge. It’s the real deal.

Neal Martin, Jun 2023

Two visits to Noble Rot Mayfair will not be my last. On reflection, it might be my favorite of the trio due to the ambiance and that duck. It represents Keeling and Andrew’s most ambitious opening thus far, given the higher number of covers and the fact that Mayfair doesn’t have the footfall of Soho.

The standard of cooking at Aurora was exemplary, and with a six-course menu at £65.00 per person, you would be paying twice as much in London, perhaps more. You could probably fly up to Edinburgh and save money.

Neal Martin, May 2023

When I was invited to join a Tuscan-themed dinner in the private room at 67 Pall Mall, I eagerly accepted. I wanted to reacquaint myself with Tuscan wines and placate my palate, which was protesting that it wanted to taste anything other than Cabernet or Pinot Noir. The bottles were deeply impressive and showcased Tuscany at its best.

Cervejaria Ramiro is the ideal way to commence your Lisbon epicurean odyssey. As the taxi driver put it on the way back, it’s a favorite with locals because it lacks pretentiousness and offers value for the money.
