Bastille Day at Tratra, Boundary Shoreditch

Lovers of French cuisine should mark Tratra on their maps. Chef and cookery writer Stéphane Reynaud has opened his latest venture in art hotel Boundary in Shoreditch.

Boundary Restaurant 1

The restaurant at Boundary will be his third restaurant and the first outside Paris. A chef for 25 years, his casual cuisine is largely inspired by recipes from the Ardèche region in south-central France, where he spent his childhood. Having grown up in a family of pig farmers and butchers, Stéphane naturally places a huge emphasis on meat and charcuterie.

In keeping with current trend for all things carnivorous in the capital, Bastille Day on 14th July promises a feast with the launch of the ‘Mise en Bouche’ menu. Meaning dishes to enjoy before a meal, the new menu will feature three hors d’oeuvres and three matching fine wines. Dishes will showcase seasonal ingredients and be determined by what is available in the kitchen that day. Plates will be complemented by wines from Tratra’s extensive cellar of French bins. Served in the venue’s wine bar, the menu will be available daily from 6pm – 8pm and priced at £15 per board. SEEN hears they’re great for sharing. As if that wasn’t enough to make you wish you were French, Tratra are offering 2-4-1 all night on July 14th on the Mise en Bouche menu. Bon Appétit, tout le monde.
