First things first. Of course Côte Brasserie is French and so with that there is ALOT of meat on the menu. You can ask for a vegetarian menu but I think if you want to make the most of your trip here you’d really have to be a meat eater. Now to be honest I don’t eat red meat but I was happy to see chicken on the menu, so I went for half a chicken with garlic butter. The meat was really tender and the frites were great, of course because who doesn’t like frites?! I liked that this was a quite a simple dish but done really well.
I’ve skipped ahead a little bit here as we actually had the Pissaladière with Reblochon cheese and thyme to start with. The ideal starter to get you in the mood for your main meal. so tasty, I could of had a couple of these. The menu itself is extensive so make sure you take everything in before making your choice, the staff are really knowledgable if you need some advice.
For dessert I went for the Frozen Berries with White Chocolate Sauce – really tasty and something fresh to finish off your meal. As it was only lunch time I didn’t want something too heavy and this was perfect.
Of course they have a an extensive wine list, something which is a must for me. I go a little bit crazy for a Côtes De Provence Rose and was pleased to see it on the menu. We may or may not have had a couple of glasses over lunch… and tipsy shopping was next on the agenda.
All in all this is the perfect place to come with friends for good food, fine wine and a good gossip. I’ll be visiting again very soon to do just that.
