Happy, happy Christmas
"Happy, happy Christmas, that can win us back to the delusions of our childish days; that can recall to the old man the pleasures of his youth; that can transport the sailor and the traveller, thousands of miles away, back to his own fire-side and his quiet home!"
- Charles Dickens, The Pickwick Papers
Well, happy Christmas and Joyeux Noel to all! The season for all things festive and frivolous is upon us, and we can't be the only ones buzzing with the anticipation of upcoming celebrations.
There's no denying London is a very special place in December, from the sparking lights draped over Oxford Street, to the carollers bursting into song on frosty corners, and the scent of mulled wine drifting out through doors of glowing restaurants.
But for a Christmas lunch to remember, make sure to embrace the joie de vivre of French feasting, since Petit Bistro is the only place to dine. Whether you're a guest at Victory House hotel, staying in the city on December 25th, or simply a Londoner who wants to be cooked for, we've got a Christmas menu perfect for you.
We believe on Christmas Day you should be sipping Champagne rather than scrubbing pans; popping a canape into your mouth rather than peeling sprouts over the sink. Forget about the stress of getting timings right or trying to figure out how many roast potatoes are needed for everyone at the table - at Petit Bistro we take that hassle out of your hands so you can thoroughly immerse yourself in Christmas cheer.
We have a trio of different options to suit every budget, and each includes a starter, main and dessert for three courses of festive feasting. To begin, tuck into Lambert & Jackson dark oak smoked salmon with avocado, or perhaps Sweet potato & pumpkin veloute with roasted chestnuts & truffle fromage blanc. A traditional Christmas lunch is of course available for the main event, as we serve up Aubrey Allen cranberry stuffed crown of turkey with roast potatoes, chipolatas, roasted roots, vegetables & cranberry sauce. There's also Seared Cod or Pithivier of wild mushrooms for anyone wanting to mix things up a little. And for dessert, Warm Christmas Pudding, Rum Baba and a fantastic cheese selection served with walnut & raisin bread are the perfect ways to sink into that post-dinner daze.
And for anyone wanting to eke out the celebrations a little more, our £55 and £75 menus also come with a trio of irresistible canapes in the form of Smoked ham croquettes, Mushroom gougere and Crab bon bons - because this is the season for indulgence, after all.
So all that's left to do is take a look at our £45, £55 and £75 menus and see what you'd like to eat on Christmas Day, then rest assured the cooking, crackers and cleaning up will be organised by us!
