Côte Brasserie – Review


Côte was always one of those chain restaurants I avoided. The French brasserie chain certainly wouldn’t have got anywhere near my top 10 chain restaurants for vegetarians. So when I was invited along to review their new vegetarian menu, I accepted with a mix of curiosity and trepidation. I was half expecting the classic botch job of many chains: collecting their pitiful handful of veggie options onto a separate piece of paper with the dessert menu and claiming that they’d put together a whole separate menu. To my excitement, I found no such thing, not only have Cote deisgned a brand new menu of tasty vegetarian dishes with great choice, they’ve re-invented their French classics to allow us veggies to enjoy them for the first time!

Veggie Pros
  • Separate vegetarian & vegan menu with a large range of tasty options.
  • Vegetarian and vegan wine and drinks menu – something I’ve never seen in other restaurants
  • French classics reinvented- like French Onion soup with veggie friendly cheese. Delicious!

Veggie Cons
  • The menu is pretty reliant on cream, eggs and cheese and therefore not that vegan friendly.

Veggie LAD Verdict

 The LADS and LASSES at Côte have put together a really great vegetarian menu here and it’s great to see them make so much more effort than your average large chain. The specially designed menu items and vegetarian wine list show them really going the extra mile. It’s just a shame they haven’t given vegans the same consideration as you’d still be struggling here. A big step in the right direction though, well done Côte!
