The Ten Bells

Owned by a Frenchman named Fifi – former GM of the French bistro le Pere Pinard – and several partners, this wine bar was built by combining two tenement building apartments. It is named after a historic London pub said to have been frequented by Jack the Ripper and some of his victims.  They serve tapas, and raw oysters, which are all prepared behind the bar.  Each Sunday night is dedicated to a pork dish featuring a different part of the animal.  English, French and Spanish are spoken.  247 Broome Street www.thetenbells.com/
