When it comes to summer holidays, you can’t beat the French Riviera.
With blue sea, blue sky, picturesque villages, quiet beaches and fantastic food, no wonder it’s been the playground of the rich & famous for so long!
However, no need to be rich or famous (or even to face the dreadful summer holiday airport check-in lines) to experience this little piece of Summer heaven, because Le Méridien Piccadilly is bringing Nice to London for the Summer!
Nod to the French origins of the brand, Le Méridien Piccadilly’s restaurant, Terrace Bar & Grill, has been transformed into an idyllic coastal resort.
Complete with striped sun loungers, sun umbrellas, blossoming climbing plants, espadrilles and a spot of apéritif…
… and even a pétanque field!
The iconic French sport is a favourite at family gatherings and a classic beachside hobby.
The rules are really quite simple: you throw the small ball (the ‘cochonnet‘) first, and then it’s all about getting the big, metal balls as close as possible to it.
Whether you play in a tête-à-tête (one-on-one) or in teams, it’s always great fun and perfect to work up an appetite!
Which you’ll most definitely need to make the most of the antipasti menu, all inspired by classic Niçois dishes.
Beautiful Artichoke Barigoule with creamy aioli.
Mini pots of melt-in-the-mouth Daube Provençale with carrots and olives.
Pan Bagnat (a tuna-filled bun & Nice’s answer to burgers!) and Pissaladière mini Tarte Tatin.
Niçoise salad (of course).
And the cutest little macarons!
All washed down with icy glasses of Sifflet cocktails (martini Bianco, Champagne, mandarin syrup & citrus zest).
And a glass or two of crisp local wine (when in France…)
… or, get two birds with one stone & indulge your French fashion fix with the Cocktail Espadrilles.
The perfect summer drink + the perfect Summer shoes? Summer packing’s never been that easy!
Which means more time to soak in the sunshine of the French Riviera!
So gather friends, book a nice big table, put on your stripy Tees and enjoy the Summer vibes!
