What we say:
Rubedo boasts a commendable ethos; this charming eatery only serves food and drink that has been naturally-sourced - treating nature and it's products with the utmost respect. All of the wines that you'll find here have never seen any mechanical nor chemical treatment; they're simply a direct result of the soil, vine, and climates that they were made in. The result? Each bottle boasts an energy that's sure to intrigue and exhilarate the tastebuds. The kitchen here takes a similar approach too; everything on the menu has been sourced from unadulterated, naturally-grown ingredients. Mirroring their humble ethos, this charming North London spot sports a charmingly asperous interior with exposed brickwork and chalkboard menus found throughout. Fused in with this self-effacing decor is a air of Parisian charm which is most pronounced with the bottles of vino that decoratively adorn this eatery throughout. Au naturel.
