New Sunday Brunch Menu + our mate Chef Stefan @ Bar-Roque Grill
Today, Sunday 6/10, I am off to the UK for a week for the new job. So we decided as a gang to visit a couple of our all-time favourite restaurants this weekend before I go. Yesterday we hit the specials board of Etna, going all Italian. Today we smash the French slopes with the New Sunday Brunch Menu + our mate Chef Stefan @ Bar-Roque Grill. We ordered so much food, even Chef Stefan himself said; “Having a light lunch today then mate…?” of course with a wry smile.
I saw a certain post from a certain gentleman, AKA Chef Stefan, that he was launching a new Sunday Brunch Menu. I also saw a post about this incredible food-porn dish he had just finished making – did you see it? I nearly fell off my chair reading the post. His words were; “Okkkkk so today with finish one of my Favourite Terrine, Pâté en Croute, 4 days process, pork Iberia, Foie Gras, Morels, Sweet Bread & Pistachio… AMAZING” And fuck me sideways, it was. More than AMAZING in fact, and I’ll get to that.
Let’s just have a wee meander 1st. PLEASE ignore Google, they are not closed, they are open. Good job we rang to confirm the booking Google. We arrived at midday, with the restaurant has been open since 11am. A great chance to pause and soak in the new menu, and to get a snap next to the incredible red award placard. Bar-Roque Grill is the only European restaurant to have been awarded the Michelin BIB Gourmand Award three years running for 2017, 2018, and 2019. Great work team. Be proud. It’s no wonder with your incredible food and restaurant.
Enough banter – let’s get to the food and that new menu. Here is my little write-up for the New Sunday Brunch Menu + our mate Chef Stefan @ Bar-Roque Grill.
This place really is ‘Death-Row’ cuisine. It really is. We can’t stop coming back. Literally any excuse, usually after Chef Stefan has posted some amazing food snaps of what he just created. We’re like, shit, book a cab and table and let’s get over there. If you have not been, you simply must. Come say hi to Stefan and Nico and enjoy the food and ambience. It’s right up there with the very very best believe me. And today for New Sunday Brunch Menu + our mate Chef Stefan @ Bar-Roque Grill was no exception.
Let me just share the few words they say about themselves which ring true every single time we come here; “We celebrate the artisanal craft, which is why our highly sought after charcuterie, rillettes and terrines are made from scratch in-house. Our latest pride and joy? A customised chiller for an exclusive meat ageing programme, a dream of Stephane’s for many years that was transformed into reality after his immersion with butchers in Paris and Strasbourg to learn the finer art of dry-ageing meats. A special hunting menu to celebrate the game season, spectacular seafood platters and a spotlight on French classics…it’s always going to be a special meal at Bar-Roque Grill.”
