About Authentique Epicerie & Bar

Authentique – Epicerie & Bar is the brainchild of Amaury, Alexandre, Matthieu and Thomas, 4 French guys who grew up with a passion for artisan food and drinks.
Having lived abroad for years, we have witnessed a strong crave, from local communities, for craft products from France and the French Speaking world.

Authentique – Epicerie & Bar is our way to combine our enthusiasm for Francophone Gastronomy with our urge to share and learn with you about the savoir-faire, the products, their creators and terroirs.

As a result, every month you will have the chance to discover one of the 12 Francophone Regions we are showcasing, through a carefully curated selection of food and drinks as well as a monthly dinner designed by one of our guest chefs.

A cosy and friendly Bar with an always renewed selection of Regional Artisan products

15+ wines by the glass
2 craft beers on tap and 50+ by the bottle
A choice of mouth watering sharing boards of cheese and charcuterie

Excellent hidden gem, though Fortress Road now boasts a number of wonderful cafes and eateries. The wine list is commendable, though I'd recommend browsing the shelves and picking a bottle, which even with the £10 corkage (for wines priced under £50) is well worth it. There's a great selection of wine and cured meats to accompany the wine, and the service is par excellence. Highly recommended for a casual or romantic evening.

Been meaning to come by since you opened and so glad I did. Ambience is fantastic. The right music. Buzzy without being overwhelmingly loud. Every dish we had was delicious and the wine was even better. It took us a bit to get our order in but after that service was great. A bit pricey, but it’s London. You’re not out of line with other London restaurants.

It was our first visit to Authentique and we are definitely going back! The dining experience was just superb... Goat In The Garden are doing a pop up there with small plates that are best for sharing. We ordered 2 of every dish on the menu for a party of 5 - make sure you order the casserole! - and we had to stop one because we wanted to try out all desserts. The menu has been designed around the wines they sell at the shop and they work perfectly. The service was very friendly and efficient and very good at recommending wines that would go well with the food. Bonus is you can buy any products you like at their deli counter afterwards. Looking forward our next visit!

I had been looking forward to visiting Authentique for months & months since it opened. It was a perfect evening & did not disappoint! Wonderful service, delicious food (I can’t believe you made carrots so amazing & I am craving that dish!), fantastic & unique wine list all in a lovely, relaxed setting. I loved the pet nat wine so much I bought a bottle & can’t wait to share with friends. My only disappointment is I don’t live nearer! Will be back soon! Merci beaucoup

Absolutely wonderful! What a gem in the heart of North London. I saw the review in TimeOut initially and it was so worth the visit! Incredible selections of wines and cheeses and lovely atmosphere. Very knowledgeable staff when it comes to cheese AND wine. Will definitely go back again.

the highest quality wine and produce and exceptionally good value. we found the music a bit loud and distracting, and it's not the most comfortable venue, but this was more than compensated for by the warm, knowledgeable service and the quality of everything.

First time here and what a great place. I went along with a group of friends who are totally foodies (really into their wine and cheese) and they loved the place (just as well as I choose it). The wine and cheese menu is extensive and thus something to suit all our tastes. The service was fantastic and the atmosphere great lively friendly vibe. Nice layout too... can't recommend this place enough! We will be going back.
