The team behind Berrington’s and Wolf & Waffle are excited to announce they are launching a new French restaurant, Brasserie Loup, which will open its doors on Tuesday 18 May.
Serving a delectable menu of classic French fare cooked to perfection, diners can expect great tasting simple dishes, hearty portions and a lively atmosphere.
Located above Wolf & Waffle on Berry Street, the 60 cover restaurant offers traditional French dishes exquisitely cooked using simple flavours and the finest season ingredients, with highlights including indulgent cheesy onion soup and Moules frites with garlic & white wine sauce.
The space itself provides a relaxed dining area with luxurious green velvet furnishings, chic French artwork and hanging plants throughout. Added playful interiors reflect the easy going style of the restaurant, including a beret clad gold mannequin head, eye-catching pink neon sign and an antique chandelier draped in ivy.
The concise menu is split into Entrees, Plats, Fromage and Desserts with examples including:
