Interested in trying something new this autumn? Love a good cocktail? We’re here to tell you about the Bloody Mary Brunch at the Bellanger restaurant in Islington Green.
This charming French brasserie in the vibrant neighbourhood of Islington showcases the rich cuisine of the Alsace region in eastern France. Because this area was once part of Germany, its cuisine has French and German elements, which can be seen in dishes like Riesling-braised Landaise chicken and Gewürztraminer-infused sorbet.
Inspired by Parisian brasseries
Bellanger is a stylish restaurant, cafe and bar, all in one space. It emulates the lively atmosphere of a traditional Parisian brasserie, with informal dining, regular live music, and a spacious terrace that’s perfect for warm summer evenings.
This year’s Bloody Mary Brunch
Held on Sunday 5th November, Bellanger will be hosting its second Bloody Mary Brunch which will include the traditional cocktail plus a few other variations such as the Alsacienne Bloody Mary, in line with the brasserie’s Alsatian theme. As a Weekend Brunch customer, you’ll not only enjoy delicious food; you’ll also receive a complimentary Bloody Mary when you arrive. After that, each cocktail will be priced at just £6.95.
A special partnership with Grey Goose
The event has been created with Grey Goose, the renowned French vodka brand. Founded in 1996, it uses 100% French ingredients, with the distillate blended with spring water at Cognac in western France, a medieval city famed for its brandy.
