Pique-Nique is the new Bermondsey restaurant from the guys behind neighbourhood favorite Casse-Croute, and the food is very good. Rich, buttery, creamy, artery clogging good, as classic French cooking should be. The menu comes in two parts: a super short a la carte section which is 90% butter and cream, and the “Menu autour du poulet de Bresse” which Google translates roughly as, “serving chicken in a bunch of different ways for your entertainment”. Some parts of the Bresse chicken set menu are better than others, but the course with the epic mashed potato - sorry, pommes purée - is the part we want to have an illicit affair with.
