Blog: Care to see the water menu?

Michelle Russell | 1 September 2011

It thinks it's a wine list but it's not.

An LA restaurant has created a water list that could put any wine menu to shame. Yes that's right, a water list. And if you need any convincing you may want to look at the Wattwiller from France ...

"Its pedigree dates back to Roman times, with the source ultimately controlled by the monks of the Abbey of Murbach in 785 AD," reads the menu description. "With salty aftertaste, this elite water delivers terrific calcium, magnesium, sulphate, and flouride."

At US$11 for a 30cl bottle it would want to.

Although, this isn't the first restaurant to create a water list. No, indeed. Mayfair hotel Claridge's in London created a water menu in 2007, from which patrons could choose from 30 selections of bottled water imported from all over the world.

It appears there are water connoisseurs amongst us. However, I couldn't see Peckham Spring on the list.

A jug of water for Table Two please.
