Review on Peploe's Wine Bistro

Owner Barry Canny (formerly of Browne's Brasserie) named this venue after one of his artistic heroes, the Scottish colourist S.J. Peploe. The bistro occupies an old banking vault beneath St Stephen's Green and it puts on a cosmopolitan face.

Vaulted ceilings, polished limestone table-tops, hand-stitched leather chairs and an amusing 'celeb' mural running the length of the dining room give the place a distinct clubby feel. It's stylish, sophisticated and stays open right through the day for food and drink.

'Small plates' are available to go with your chosen tipple, but the full menu promises greater things. Modern European trends show in starters such as carpaccio of veal with 'Bella di Serignola' olives and basil aοoli or seared scallops with wild mushrooms, spinach lasagne and white tomato beurre blanc. Main courses are in similar vein, offering magret of duck with sweet potato fondant, yellow beans and Muscat jus as well as smoked haddock cake with braised cucumber, shrimp, lemon and caper butter.

Desserts are mostly standards with a new twist, as in rice pudding served with pistachios and red wine figs. The 'wine bistro' moniker is apt, since Peploe's full list runs to more than 200 appetising bins – including a dozen Champagnes and around 30 other offerings by the glass.
