Jason Atherton's Social Wine & Tapas to open next week

Social Wine & Tapas, the latest restaurant from Jason Atherton's Social Company, is to open next week.

Headed up by the group's executive sommelier Laure Patry, Social Wine & Tapas on London's James Street will feature over 500 bins alongside a tapas menu devised by head chef Frankie Van Loo.

Set over two floors, Atherton's sixth London site includes a wine shop on ground floor level alongside an open kitchen and 26 covers. The 40-cover basement features a charcuterie and cheese counter, wine bar area, and cellar visible through a window in the wall holding large format bottles.

Patry's wine list will focus on Europe, along with a wide selection of sherries and Madeira. Around 14 white and 14 red wines will be offered by the glass, while there will also be a series of wine flights available showcasing various regions.

Patry said: "It's more of a wine focus than our other restaurants, but we've got a good food element too.

Van Loo's menu will include: jamon, Manchego and truffle toastie; heirloom tomato salad with burrata, basil and gazpacho dressing; seafood and rabbit Spanish rice; and creme Catalan with orange.

All waiters will be trained sommeliers to ensure guests are guided through the list.
