And they have done it again, La Mouette have changed their menu and changed lives. Ok, well, at least my life. It is really great, I had a sneak peak of it at their annual Twitterati Party, which was better than I could ever have imagined. Well done to Mari, Henry and the entire team for pulling off such a successful event, the biggest and best yet. I look forward to the next one.
In the meantime, go check out the new menu. It is très superbe mes amies!
