Café Pistou, an all day Provençal brasserie, opens on Exmouth Market this October. Serving Provençal inspired food and drink, with a focus on small plates for the table, the café, restaurant and bar will open from breakfast until late. The menu reinterprets Provençal cuisine for an urban audience, featuring an imaginative range of ‘sunshine food’ full of fresh, bold flavours. Located at the heart of Café Pistou is a horseshoe shaped bar that will serve up a selection of small plates and classic cocktails reinterpreted to evoke a taste of Provence. Café Pistou also offers French artisan coffee, and a carefully crafted wine list focusing on the South of France.
The 95 cover restaurant, situated at the entrance to the famous market, will accommodate an additional 40 covers for al fresco dining during warmer months. Founder Charlie McLean, previously with cau and Gaucho, has handpicked a specialist team to bring his vision to life. The menu was created by Alex Mackay, who trained and worked with Raymond Blanc before setting up a cookery school near Saint-Tropez and writing an award-winning book, ‘Cooking in Provence’. French cocktail specialist Anthony Bannier and coffee enthusiasts Dunne Frankowski have created a drinks offer that imaginatively reinterprets the region’s flavours and traditions.
Injecting some sunshine flavours into the foodie haven of Exmouth Market, Café Pistou is an all-day brasserie serving up Provençal small plates reinterpreted for London’s urban audience. Enjoy artisan coffee and croissants whilst soaking up the sun in their outdoor seating or head there after dark when Southern French wines and small plates are the order of the day. Hop up to the cosy horshoe bar to sample Provencal favourites such as Pissaladieres (puff pasty tarts with caramelized onion and a choice of toppings) or sit at the more formal dining tables for spatchcocked poussin and chargrilled lamb cutlets. There’s even a Southern France inspired cocktail menu to accompany the extensive wine list.
