Bar Douro City will bring Portuguese food and wine to Broadgate

What: Bar Douro City

In a nutshell: Portuguese wine bar in the City

Summing it all up: The original Bar Douro in Flat Iron Square (near London Bridge) has proven such a hit that they're getting ready to open a second. This time they'll be bringing their Portuguese wine and food to a big new development near Broadgate. 

The low-down

After success south of the river near London Bridge, Portuguese restaurant and wine bar Bar Douro is about to get a second outpost in the City. 

Launched by owner Max Graham, who spent his childhood in Porto and whose family produces wine in Douro, they'll be opening the new restaurant at 1 Finsbury Avenue. That's the latest big re-development that London's been seeing a lot of at the moment (this time at Broadgate), in this instance revamping a grade II listed building (and adding an Everyman Cinema too). 

We don't know too much about the menu yet - but expect a Portuguese offering similar to the original - Petiscos (snacks), Pratinhos (small plates) and Pratos (large plates) and plenty or Portuguese custard tarts too. 

On the drinks list there will be a curated Portuguese wine list, sourced from independent wineries. And there will be a special list of fine wines on their cellar list - the City does like to spend a bit on a bottle, after all. On top of that, there will be special wine dinners and they're importing Portuguese craft beers too. 

As for the look of the place - counter dining will surround an open kitchen (the counter at the original Bar Douro is impressive) and there's more traditional seating in the restaurant, with a terrace outside too.
