Free-pour Bordeaux wine. They won't be trying this is in Australia.
Imagine telling Australians that they can drink their fill; as much Bordeaux as they want to consume over the duration of a long restaurant lunch.
It would be a recipe for ructions; a prescription for pandemonium; a magnet for mayhem. Australians are often prodigious drinkers and are keen on value for money. In London, apparently, diners can be trusted to pay £15 per head and enjoy unlimited refills of Bordeaux when they order Sunday roast at one of a number of top-end eateries. And still behave themselves. That's around 25 bucks in Aussie dollars. Restaurant group D&D London has partnered with Vins de Bordeaux UK to launch “Red Roasts”, a "bottomless drinks" deal for October. Butler’s Wharf, by Tower Bridge, New Street Grill near Liverpool Street station (above), Southbank’s Skylon and Paternoster Chop House near St Paul’s are all taking part in the Red Roasts promotion.
D&D will also serve sharing roasts alongside the bottomless Bordeaux deal, which will include pressed Waveney Valley pork belly, roast Aberdeen cross sirloin, half-spit-roast corn-fed chicken, braised autumn lamb shoulder with a selection of sides served with bottomless gravy for £22.50 per head. It all sounds deliciously decadent. Just don't let them know in Earl's Court.
