What is it good for?

- Signature dish
Le Mistral is well known for its organic, vegetarian and vegan dishes.
- Who's the boss?
Jim Anderson is the boss of the three Le Mistral restaurants in Derby and Nottingham, but the Wirksworth branch is managed by Sam North and Saskia Oosterwoud.
- Tips please?
Le Mistral regularly holds events including wine tasting evenings, gourmet nights and live poetry performances.
- What's the damage?
For two courses expect to pay around £18. There are lighter alternatives, such as fresh baguettes, soup du jour and omelettes from £5-£10. Excellent for a quick bite without breaking the budget.
