Following the success of last year’s Lodge d’Argent winter pop up, City restaurant Coq d’Argent will once again be creating a magical winter wonderland on its rooftop this festive season. Running from 23 November until the end of February, Lodge d’Argent will this year be inspired by the Little Red Riding Hood story, evoking the French fairy tale with rustic wooden walls, and fur blankets and cushions. In addition, beautiful mason-style jars with miniature Little Red Riding Hood scenes will be displayed throughout the terrace, and rafts of wintry ferns will adorn the space. The chic white, red and gold scheme will allow guests to snuggle up while enjoying indulgent dishes and cocktails against the festive backdrop.
This year, head chef Damien Rigollet’s Lodge d’Argent menu will focus on well-loved, hearty French classics, including Raclette gratin with ratte potatoes and Alpine dry cured ham; Pomme frites with Chablis and black truffle mustard mayonnaise; and Leek and Comté tart with mixed leaf salad. The dessert menu will offer dishes paired with Hennessy Cognac, including Chestnut macarons and Fresh waffles with hot chocolate and chantilly cream.
Angel De Sousa, bar and grill manager, has curated a list of winter warmer cocktails in collaboration with Hennessy Cognac, including the Holly Winter with sweet vermouth, ginger, spice syrup, cranberry juice and ginger ale; Mitten with Mozart dark chocolate and gingerbread, topped with hot chocolate; and Fire Wood with Pedro Ximenez, Kahlua, orange bitters and walnuts bitters.
