La Grillade

A couple of weeks ago, I was invited to La Grillade‘s relaunch party. While I hadn’t been to the restaurant before the revamp, I was impressed by its fresh French appearance and subtle rustic charm. La Grillade has been operating in Crows Nest for over 25 years and I must admit this party showed no sign of age.
There was plenty of French wine circulating but unfortunately, not enough food… So it would only make sense that I plotted myself near the kitchen. And because I did, I’ll let the pictures do the talking.
Here’s an example of what to expect on the new menu:
