Casse-croûte du Beaujolais

Thursday 15 November 2012 19:00-23:00

Bistrot de l’Institut

The Beaujolais nouveau arrives! A big event that gives us the theme of this new ’diner du Bistrot’

Every year on the third Thursday of November, tradition has it that we open the first bottles of Beaujolais nouveau, the most popular ’vin de primeur’ that has just fermented for a few weeks.

On this third Thursday of November and for one evening only, Le Bistrot sports the colours of Beaujolais and serves a selection of specialties from the region to tickle your taste buds while you are enjoying the new wine.

For the sake of comparison, a larger selection of older Beaujolais wines will also be available!

Menu du Beaujolais
£13 (£12 for members)

1 glass of Beaujolais (12,5 cl)
- 1 caillette (pork parcel)
- All-you-can-eat Buffet du Beaujolais (charcuteries, salads)

Advanced booking is not essential but if you would like to reserve a table, please call the box office at 0131 225 5366. Please pay directly at Le Bistrot (cash or check only).
