Septime La Cave is a small, sparse bar and cave quite close to its mothership Septime. It serves a short, but nicely conceived list of wines by the glass at very reasonable prices, or you can buy a bottle from the shelves that line two walls and they will open it for you at a very modest mark-up. They also serve small snacks which are quite delicious.
We have tried the anchovy and ricotta dish which saw three, high-quality anchovy fillets draped over a mound of very nice ricotta and sprinkled with puffed buckwheat. We also enjoyed a slab of foie gras-studded in the centre with little pieces of smoked eel, some excellent slices of pancetta and a charcuterie plate with some excellent house-smoked duck slices.
To accompany these dishes you might choose the excellent Mont Blanc sparkling Gringet from Domaine Belluard in the Savoie or a Pet Nat from Herve Villemade or one of the stunning wines from Occhipinti. Actually whatever is on offer is of the highest quality with all of the wines on offer being the best of the natural wine community in France, Italy and beyond.
There are not many stools and the bar is not very big, but the vibe here is excellent and the food and wine what you would expect from the Septime team.
