About the event

The red, white and blue will be flying at Le Pont De La Tour again this summer – not for the jubilee but for Bastille Day, the French national holiday.

The iconic French restaurant on the banks of the River Thames in London will be celebrating the values of ‘liberté, egalité et fraternité’ with a special Bastille Day tasting menu bursting with luxurious French produce and inspiration from all corners of France. The restaurant with its elegant champagne and crustacea bar and riverside terrace, offering a glorious view of Tower Bridge, is one of London’s most spectacular ‘special occasion’ restaurants.

Tom Cook, head chef at Le Pont De La Tour comments, “For this Bastille Day’s special celebratory menu, we have created a mouth-watering French menu that delivers classic French flavours and stays true to our fresh, contemporary style. We’ve worked with our favourite producers in both the UK and France to find ingredients that perfectly evoke French summer eating for our guests.”

The six-course menu will be served at Le Pont De La Tour from 9th to 14th July, 2012, and will cost £85 per person inclusive of coffee and petits fours. The menu is available with a choice of sommelier-selected wine flights – either six classic wines from New and Old World producers at a supplement of £45, or six ‘iconic’ wines from top, predominantly French producers, charged at a supplement of £90.
