Telegraph

I had time to kill before getting seated at Longman & Eagle, so my boyfriend and I decided to kill time by getting a snack and drinks close by at Telegraph.

We got some pomme frites to munch on, and I got a rose wine to sip on while waiting to get seated for a late dinner due to a long queue! The pomme frites are not your normal pomme frites, they vinegar their fries here. Kinda neat and nice to try. Think salt and vinegar chips, except in fries form. The drinks were pretty good. We had our drinks at the bar. I usually don't sit at the bar, but Telegraph has a nice wine bar set up. A happy hour, lounge, wine bar-ish setting for those that just want to kick back and chillax. If you want more of a dining experience, they have another section that serves as a restaurant for the full dining experience.

I came here on a Friday night, and I'd be willing to come back on a Friday night, catch up with friends over drinks, etc.
