Celebrate World Malbec Day with the best of Argentina at M Restaurants
With Malbec World Day coming up on April 17, the City’s hot new culinary destination M Restaurants will be celebrating the event in style. The complex, which includes two restaurants and a cocktail bar, is launching its new outdoor terrace featuring a Malbec vineyard and grape-crushing pool. With the weather warming up, the outdoor area is expected to become a big draw over the spring and summer, with views of the Bank of England.
From the 13 April, M will be hosting Malbec Week featuring a special Argentine menu and wine tastings from the Enomatic machines with head sommelier Zack Charilaou. There will also be screenings of Argentine movies. Diners will be able to sample top Argentine produce and visit the Malbec vineyard and crush some grapes barefoot.
As seasoned red wine connoisseurs may know, Malbec has become one of the popular grapes in recent years. Although the grape originated in France, it has particularly thrived in Argentina and become an ingredient in many of the country’s red wines.
M, from former Gaucho MD Martin Williams, opened in November 2014 and has made waves as the first restaurant in Europe to serve Kobe Beef. The complex comprises the M Grill steak restaurant, M Raw eaterie (which serves raw food), cocktail bar and wine-tasting room. M recently hosted the world’s first drinkable art and is set to host an election-themed cocktails in the run up to the General Election.
- M, 2-3 Threadneedle Walk, 60 Threadneedle Street, City of London, EC2 8HP. Nearest station: Bank or Liverpool Street. Malbec Week at M runs from 13-18 April 2015. For more information and booking, visit the M restaurants website.
