Monday was national French toast day. So with that in mind, let’s take a look at the Top 10 Best
French Restaurants to eat in this week.
1.Edinburgh; L'Escargot Bleu
This French restaurant with a Scottish twist, nominated for an Award of Excellence, now has their special Christmas menu available for lunch between 12:00pm and 5:30pm; and dinner from 6:30pm till late. Whet your appetite with steamed Shetland mussels before a fresh plate of sea bass a la plancha, then the finale: a rich baked chocolate tart!
2. Newcastle; Cafe Rouge
With live music every night and regular featured deals on their website, Cafe Rouge should be a definite on every foodie’s list to visit. Until the 4th December, they are offering a 2-for-1 deal on their breakfast menu — buttermilk pancakes, French Toast croissant, and even morning cocktails are all available!
3. Liverpool; Caveau
For those chasing the coattails of more intimate ambiance, this French restaurant fits the bill perfectly. They even offer private dining, bringing you one step closer to that romantic Parisian taste.
4. Belfast; La Bastille
Bringing with it a menu of class and style, this restaurant is not a French restaurant with a Gallic twist but rather the opposite way around. Indulge in either a traditional beef bourguignon or branch out a little and taste their delicious sweet potatoe gnocchi. There’s even a lemon and passion fruit posset for dessert, giving you that exotic feel!
5. Dublin; Pearl Brasserie Restaurant
Having opened only sixteen years ago, Pearl Brassiere offers a comfortable yet sleek dinner hideaway — the perfect location for couples or groups. Toast a wine glass with your partner whilst sampling their rich and tender Irish beef fillet; finish with an intimate exchange of warm chocolate puddings.
6. Manchester; 63 Degrees
Just because this brasserie is family run does not mean it is losing any points for elegance — rather, it’s gained them. Their open planned layout is readily available for group functions and work get-togethers — who could say no to such fine dining?
7. York; Rustique
Rustique brings into its chic setting some of the city’s fine History. A large stained glass window illuminates the main dining area and the wooden furniture makes you believe you really are in a small restaurant in the heart of one of Paris’ many streets.
8. Plymouth; Bistrot Pierre
A relaxed bistrot which is located in the very thrall of Plymouth’s Royal William Yard, providing the very food which fuels the steady influx of eager diners. With a variety of menus, including pre-theatre, party, and a Carte des vins, there is guaranteed to be something for everyone to enjoy.
9. London; Bar Boulud
This is the only London based restaurant of Michelin star chef Daniel Boulud and it truly shines in his image. It features not only a stylish bistro and wine bar, but a charcuterie counter where you can watch the chefs prepare your meal in front of your eyes!By Heather Lukins
