I’m not licensed so I’ve decided to get into bed with Ten Green Bottles. Not literally, more’s the pity (a couple of handsome lads actually). Ten Green Bottles are a small bespoke wine company that offers an interesting and reasonably priced wine list. They’ve spent years in Italy and know the small producers. (Italy has had a reputation of keeping, rather than exporting, their good wine; Ten Green Bottles is changing this by sourcing great little regional wines).Each week I will tell them my menu so guests can order and pay for their wine from Ten Green Bottles and have it delivered directly here. I’ve tried several of their wines and they are all gorgeous, far better than the stuff you will get in your local offie or supermarket.
“What it to them?” I thought “it’s not costing them anything”.
Now I know better. The one thing that I hate more than anything else at The Underground Restaurant is providing glasses. They break easily and are a pain to wash, dry and store. Each guest uses at least three glasses. Do the maths. That’s a lot of glasses.
