What: Bar Crispin
In a nutshell: Crispin Mk 2
Summing it all up: The people behind Crispin in Spitalfields are coming to Soho with a new natural wine bar (backed up by a great snacks list).
Since opening in Spitalfields, Crispin has been a big hit with both its own chef and the occasional pop-up or residency. Now, they're expanding into Soho, taking up a space on Kingly Street with their new wine bar, Bar Crispin.
Primarily all about the wine, it'll have a list of 150 bottles curated by Crispin's in-house sommelier Stefano Cazzato. The list will take the same approach to its selection as the original Crispin - so that's old-world primarily and small producers. They'll also have monthly wine events, including tastings, food pairings & more.
On the food side of things, Crispin's head chef Naz Hassan (previously at Anglo and Clipstone) has been working with their consultant executive chef Tom Cenci (Loyal Tavern) on an all-day snack menu. That'll include dishes like white beans, green sauce & Le Coste olive oil and Crispin's Fish in a Tin - a smoked mackerel tin, with sourdough & butter as well as native oysters, truffle crisps and more.
As for the bar itself, that will fit 20 inside plus another 10 on the terrace and there's a private dining room downstairs with the design taking on a retro look inspired by Soho in the 80s.
