    A new bar has opened on Camden High Street and the clue to what it's serving is in the name - Trufflesecco. Yep, that's right it's a Prosecco and truffles bar.

    We don't know much more than that - but dishes on the menu include ‪‎crostino‬ with truffle sauce and gnocco fritto with ‎mozzarella‬ and ‪‎mortadella‬.

    And, if you're after something to take away, they feature a selection of truffle goods, pasta and wines to buy.

    We love burgers. And we love wine. So the idea of Big Fernand and The Remedy collaborating for a Natural wine and Hamburgé Salon sounds just peachy to us. This one night event will see The Remedy heading over to Big Fernand on Percy Street where they'll be hosting a mini wine bar pairing natural and biodynamic wines by the glass for a fiver with Big Fernand’s burgers.

    So there'll be La Garnacha Olivdada de Aragon – an old vine garnacha from Asturias, Northern Spain

    Bag-in-box wine taproom BIB is coming back to East London for a six month residency, following its popular pop up in November. And this time they're teaming up with chef Harry Kaufman, adding some small plates to the menu.

    You may have been reading about White Lyan's revolutionary new 'wine' offering - the revolution being that they don't actually grapes to make it. Instead the team have been creating drinks based on taking the "flavour profile" of wine and deconstructing it, and then rebuilding it.

    Now they're planning a five day pop up "wine bar". Lyan Cellars will run run for five days next week at Lantana Cafe in Shoreditch. And they've brought in Doug McMaster of Brighton

    London is in the grip of a wine bar revolution. And there's a huge new one on the way. Humble Grape opened its first wine bar and shop in Battersea last year and now they're planning a second one - this time on Fleet Street.

    They'll be taking over a huge space on St Bride’s Passage, just off Fleet Street which, fittingly, used to be The Press House Wine Bar, once a famous drinking den for journalists. It all sounds very convivial, being tucked away in the

    Opening today on Pall Mall is a new private members club devoted to wine. But despite its St James location, the club's aim is to focus on offering fine wine to its members without costing them an arm and a leg. The idea came from founder Grant Ashton deciding he was "fed up of being mugged by punitive London mark-ups on fine wine."

    The club's Master Sommelier is Ronan Sayburn who counts Cafe du Vin, Gordon Ramsay Holdings and the Dorchester Collection

    There's a new wine list at Restaurant Gordon Ramsay and it aims to light a small fire under the way in which wine is sold and enjoyed in top restaurants.

    The list is the brainchild of the three Michelin-starred restaurant's Head Sommelier Jan Konetzki. "Classically wine lists in fine dining restaurants can be intimidating," he told us. "We think it is great to have a a lot of different wines but we're also trying to make the wine choice a great experience for our

    When the much-vaunted Tasmanian restaurant Garagistes announced it was closing in Spring this year, folk down under wondered where the respective members of the talented crew would end up. Co owner Katrina Birchmeier moved to NYC to open The Four Horsemen in Brookyn and now Head Chef William Gleave has tipped up in London.

    Gleave (pictured above right) has just been announced as the new head chef at P Franco in Clapton. A quick look at a draf menu includes dishes like

    So while we were excited to bring you news of the opening of Escocesa on Stoke Newington Church Street a week or so ago, seems we'd completely missed another new opening from recent weeks, Rubedo.

    There's always room in Hot Dinners' lives for some crazy pop-up shenanigans in the run up to Christmas and B.I.B sounds right up our street. This Dalston spot will be taking over Brunswick East coffee in Dalston from 6pm every Wednesday to Saturday this November. And the B.I.B? Well that stands for Bag in Box. Yes this is a natural wine box pop-up. It couldn't be more East London if it tried.

    Opening its doors on Holloway Road today is new wine and cheese store Provisions. It's the brainchild of two ex-Borough Wine blokes - Hugo and Ben. "We want to put the producer at the fore and tell their story to people here," Ben told Hot Dinners. "It’s what got us hooked on them in the first place and what we love about working with them."

    Expect to find around 100 wines in stock from France and Italy. There'll be a wine refill system where a reusable bottle
