EAT | Coq D'Argent

Sunday, 6 April 2014 ·

Last weekend Matthew and I were lucky enough to be invited for dinner at Coq D'Argent for a friends birthday. I decided to make the most of the lighter evenings to take an OOTN. Although we may now be creeping into springtime it as still a little chilly hence the blazer and black tights but this is still one of my favourite outfits for in the evening. 

So from the top my blazer is from Primark and I absolutely love it - it's such a lovely pale peach colour and goes with almost everything and is perfect for spring/summer time. The dress is one of my all time favourites from  a brand called Mimi Chica, I picked it up from TK Maxx just before Christmas. My shoes are super old (hence all the scuffing) but are undoubtedly the most comfortable heels I own - I got them years ago from Monsoon. My clutch is from Osprey, I was given this for my birthday last year by my parents - it's a great colour as it seems to go with most things and is ideal throughout the year. It's big enough to fit my keys, purse, phone and camera which is perfect for things like going to dinner.

This photo shows off the necklace a little better than the last one - it's from New Look, I picked it up in the sale after Christmas. It's perfect for a dress like this as it adds a little bling without being too in your face, also it's really light which I love. I always find myself drawn to big statement necklaces but the weight puts me off as I imagine them to be quite uncomfortable. 

We popped up to a bar called Madison in Bank before dinner. My knowledge of the city is beyond awful seeing as I never have to go up there so I couldn't have been more surprised when we got out of the lift and I looked to my left to see this stunning view of St Pauls - could it be any more beautiful? Unfortunately we didn't get time to have a drink but I highly recommend going up there just for the view if you're ever in the area.

Onto Coq D'Argent, this is a beautiful restaurant up on a rooftop near Bank. Matthew started with St Jacques - scallop and bacon crispy sandwich with braised peas - personally I hate fish but Matthew seemed to love this. I had Tarte - caramelised onion, goats' cheese tart fine, watercress and black olives. This was absolutely delicious, although anything with goats cheese is a winner with me! I wolfed this down so fast I completely forgot to take a picture!

Believe it or not the mains were even better than the starters! Matthew (and almost everyone else for that matter) chose Chevreuil - almond and cacao nib crusted roe deer venison, parsnip puree and Amaretto sauce. I tried some of this and the meat was beautifully cooked so I highly recommend it!

After much back and forth I finally decided on Agneau - slow cooked lamb belly , carrot and cumin puree, rosemary and orange sauce. Lamb is one of my favourite meats and this literally melted in my mouth - it was incredible.

Now at this point in the evening we all got a little carried away on the extensive wine cellar and I forgot to take anymore photos. The bottom line though is that if you have something to celebrate or just fancy something a little more high end this should definitely be on your list!
