Two Ladies Wot Dine à la française

15 Apr

As I’m sure you have gathered, I love food, I love dining and I love my girlfriends, so whenever I’m able to combine all three variables, I am one happy bunny!

I recently had dinner with my darling-ette and fellow Lady Wot Brunches Feyi and what a fabulous time we had!  We went to Coq D’Argent on 1 Poultry, Bank (do you get it?  Coq + Poultry = chicken theme!) for some catching up, business chat and of course a good old goss!  The food on this occassion was an added bonus!

Coq D’Argent is a French restaurant, with plenty of good French fare on the menu.  From the themed lift which takes you to the top floor, to the wonderful service and fun and flirty atmosphere, as a slick City worker, you would appreciate it.  As a non-City worker, you’d also find a certain charm in the restaurant which is small enough to accommodate the intimacy required for a dinner for 2 and yet not too big to become a mass haven for wannabe cool cats (you know the type that always want to be seen, talking loudly and obnoxiously about absolute sh!t!).  I’d been craving snails since our trip to Paris, so when I spotted them on the menu, I jumped straight at the opportunity!  Yummy!  They were seasoned and cooked very well, although it took a little while to work out how to get them out of the shell!

The highlight of the meal I think were the desserts.  Not only were they ridiculously well presented and decorated, they tasted soooo good!

Contrary to what the title suggest, we did NOT receive all our food at once and instead, it came out in a staggered but appreciated order.  If you’re based in the city, or fancy a bite to eat in the Capital’s business district, make sure you pay the restaurant a visit.  We loved it!
