On Tuesday night Burger and I finally got a chance to enjoy the dinner for two that I won from fancy pants French restaurant Bistro du Vin in Soho via a competition I entered with M:/P Magazine. The choices were almost too hard to make on the two course set menu, I could have ordered everything. In the end we chose the pumpkin parmesan soupe du jour for starts along with an order of garlic escargot on toast from the main menu. Nom nom nom.
For mains I chose the succulent Donald Russel onglet steak frites while Burger opted for the light and perfectly roasted salmon & forestiere. Talk about melt in your mouth. We were also given a complimentary bottle of red house wine that paired well with the strips of steak.
It was easy to take your time and savour every single bite rather than stuffing your face as fast as possible as is so often the case when you live life on the go. We ended the meal with a perfect treacle tart with clotted cream, but I was so busy enjoying myself that I forgot to take a photo. Bistro du Vin is definitely the perfect restaurant for that special occasion. HUGE thanks to all the friendly and accommodating staff as well as to Sha from M:/P Magazine!
