Le Garrick have put together a special La Fête Nationale menu showcasing their signature dishes using French recipes passed down through Charles’ family. ‘One of the secrets is staying true to your roots’ said Charles Lepelletier, owner of Le Garrick. ‘We’re a French restaurant renowned for our classics, so they have to be on the menu. People come expecting their favourite dish, so we like to keep them on the menu.’
The Bastille Day menu includes all the classics – start with either Soupe a l’oignon, Cassolette de Calamars au Piment D’Espelette, Pate de champagne maison or Escargots de Bourgogne. Followed by mains which include Faux filet sauce au poivre ou béarnaise, Coq au vin and Moules Frites. Or if you have more of a sweet tooth, opt for a main and a dessert instead for the same price, including in Tarte au citron, Crème brulee or Petit pot au chocolat.
