The month of May has finally arrived, the weather is looking good and in true Gallic style, it’s fiesta time at Le Bouchon Breton with the  launch of La Fete de St Tropez, a celebration of the culinary  delights of Le Sud de France and ideal for alfresco dining on the  handsome terrace overlooking the hustle and bustle of Spitalfields  Market.

The Breton chefs have devised an exceptional range of tempting hot  fish and shellfish sharing platters all served with deliciously  moreish buttery sauces, crusty bread and ice cold local rose,  creating the ultimate and very reasonable “lunch or dinner  complete”.

With three delicious courses including a vegetarian option and ½ a bottle of Chateau St Magerite Rose for just £30  it’s certainly not going to break the bank.
