Brasserie Blanc is now open in London’s Covent Garden. The
restaurant will serve an accessible take on fine French cuisine, from
its sensational setting in the iconic Opera Terrace of the bustling
London marketplace. The restaurant celebrated its opening night with a troop of can-can girls yesterday – frolics
carried on into the evening at a launch party for invited guests
including Britt Ekland, Sir Terence Conran and Pink Floyd’s Nick Mason.
The venue is to offer the chic and traditional charm befitting Raymond’s
vision for his brasseries. Situated beneath a spectacular arched glass
ceiling and offering views across the piazza, the Grade II-listed
building housing this latest addition to the Brasserie Blanc collection
is a sight to behold. The decor offers all the grandeur of a traditional
Parisian brasserie, with a contemporary twist.
Brasserie Blanc is Raymond’s way of extending the cooking he remembers
at home in Besançon to hungry Londoners. The restaurants offer
sensational French cuisine at accessible prices. Raymond describes his
Brasseries as the Can Can, explaining, “if the Manoir is a delicate
waltz then the Brasseries are the Can Can.”
Dishes offer the best of seasonal French cuisine. Menus are created by
Raymond Blanc, who has been inspired by his mother, the legendary Maman
Blanc. What’s on offer will change with the seasons, allowing the chefs
of Brasserie Blanc to make the most of fine ingredients cooked simply.
