Brasserie Colette has just opened in December. At that time the place was very crowded, delicious canapés were served, and I passed some nice hours in company of a girlfriend. At the lunch I could finally see the whole interior in all its glory. I’m a huge fan! My boyfriend was reminded of an old waiting hall at a French trainstation. The heave carpets on the floor and heavy marble tables made it cozy again.
We arrived around 12:30 and the restaurant was filling very quickly. Next to us there were seated three elder guests, who apparently had already eaten several times there. In front of us a French family from Munich with children were sitting, and some couples had occupied the tables near the windows. A potpourri of young and old people. The neighboring retirement home Tertianum Premium Residences shares its kitchen with the Brasserie. Hence the Terianum residents may enjoy their meals either at the Tertianum Restaurant or at the Brasserie Colette.
Brasserie Colette the food
We enjoyed our lunch to the fullest and it’s been a while that my boyfriend and I have been on a proper date. I took mainly meat-dishes, while he went for the fish ones. As a starter I chose the beef tatar with poached egg and N. took the marinated salmon with grapefruit and chervil. Both dishes were really delicious and the toasted bread along went really well with the tatar. At the adjacent table they had ordered steak et frites and I was a little upset having ordered the wrong main course. Next time I will certainly order the steak. I went for the poulet en croute, which is a traditional dish that I haven’t eaten in a long time. Really heave, though! What I missed were a little bit more fresh sides but all in all it was good. The lobster my boyfriend chose looked delicious but I found the portion really small. As sweet finale I could not resist taking the Crêpe Colette, which was really very delicious. The Crêpe Colette was just too good. I love beurre salé in crêpes so much, not a fan of the normal one, though. N. ended with a variaton of cheese – so French!
The prices are definitely in the higher range. What we missed were some sorts of menus for lunch. For example in France they offer entrée + plat oder plat + dessert, or a whole menu a lot of times. I think something like this doesn’t exist in Munich. All in all, I loved the whole ambience a lot and I will definitely come back on a special occasion.
