They’re known for running the beloved Bottles & Battles in Mercato Metropolitano, and now Franco Mancini and Daniele Marano are headed east with Bottles, an Italian wine bar now open in the centre of Old Spitalfields Market. Head here for expertise, and when you’re in the mood to try something new: each member of the wait staff is a sommelier in his or her own right, so use the opportunity to pick their brains and find some new favourites of the 180 labels in stock. SOOD Kitchen join the fray as the in-house restaurant, pairing dishes to specific wines from each region. Don’t miss the open kitchen for private parties and tasting dinners either – or the mozzarella bar out front.
