Last Thursday I was invited to attend French Aperitif at Brasserie Quartier. It is located at the beautiful St.Regis Hotel. The Brasserie Quartier is a contemporary French restaurant that offers rich culinary fare from France.
St.Regis was on my must-visit list since it opened in Dubai recently. I was thrilled to visit the hotel finally. The hotel looks stunning from outside, it is more spectacular inside. It has an old world charm about it. Loved the spiraling stairway, gorgeous chandeliers and fresh flowers.
Brasserie Quartier is on the Level 1 of St.Regis. The ambience of the restaurant is classy and elegant. It has a Parisian vibe to it. The spacious restaurant has floor to ceiling windows. The place is well lit with comfortable seating areas.
For the French Aperitif we were seated at the bar area, as that was where the main action would take place. Lively music in the background got us into the weekend mode.
The bar at Brasserie Quartier is big and well stocked. After being seated on the high bar stools, we started checking out the French aperitif menu.
French Aperitif at Brasserie Quartier happens every Thursday from 7 PM to 9 PM. It is priced AED 190 per person.
What can you expect at the French Aperitif?
A wide selection of house beverages like wine, beer and cocktails, along with French canapés at the bar area of Brasserie Quartier.
I tried three of their cocktails- Lychee Raspberry Bellini, Ginger Margarita and Parisian Punch.
Lychee Raspberry Bellini- I started off with the light and refreshing Lychee Raspberry Bellini. It had nice and subtle flavor.
Ginger Margarita- Fresh ginger added the extra zing to this drink. Made with Tequila, Cointreau, ginger, lime and ginger salt-it made a fantastic cocktail.
Parisian Punch- Had Absolut pear vodka, Absinthe, ginger ale, cucumber, lemon and mint. It had well balanced flavors. Yes, this drink definitely packed a punch.
The Freshly shucked oysters were a big hit with everyone.
Loved the various kinds of French Cheese that was on offer.
I also had the Creamy dip with vegetable sticks and toasted bread.
Wide range of French canapés were laid out on the bar table– Tarte Flambee, Mini beef Tarte, Mini Jambon beurre, Petit croque monsieur, French style pastry pissaladiere and Chickpea Croquette panis.
I tried all the vegetarian offerings and it was fantastic. Exotic cocktails, great canapés, beautiful and relaxed atmosphere on a Thursday evening is a fantastic way to bring in the weekend.
Celebrate the end of the week with an authentic French Aperitif at Brasserie Quartier, St.Regis Dubai every Thursday evening. I definitely recommend the French Aperitif at this French hotspot at the St.Regis.
