Wines are always an integral part of the experience at Morgan M. The tasting evenings are designed for those who enjoy good wine and good food and diners will be supplied with tasting notes and information on the six wines sampled, as well as an explanation from restaurant manager, Stephane Aupre, and the team on why the wines match the food. Amongst those to be tried are Bourgueil Les Vieilles Vignes AOC 2006 (Loire Valley); Pernand Vergelesses 1er Cru Sous Fretille 2005 (Burgundy); and Jurancon La Magendia de Lapeyre 2004 (South of France).
Morgan M is well-known for its high standard of French cuisine, with Morgan’s signature light touch producing delicate dishes with subtle flavours. Most diners opt for the 6-course tasting menus but the restaurant also serves an à la carte. Dishes on May’s menu will include chilled cream of broad beans with horseradish foam; lightly seared yellow fin tuna, Provençale vegetables, tapenade, red pepper and basil sorbet; ragout of French rabbit with mustard, saddle roasted with olive, steamed gnocchi and courgette, wild garlic froth; and raspberry soufflé, lemon verbena ice cream, red fruit coulis.
The interior provides a warm atmosphere with wood panelling and plush burgundy walls contrasting well with the comfortable, green dining chairs. The restaurant is light and airy, benefiting from large windows throughout.
The restaurant is open for dinner Tuesday – Saturday from 7pm to 10pm, and for lunch Wednesday to Sunday (closed Saturday) from 12 noon to 3pm. For more information visit www.morganm.com or telephone 020 7609 3560. Quote “special wine tasting evening” when booking these events.
