The atmosphere does work a pseudo-Parisian charm and can easily be classed as a romantic little getaway with its flickering candles...

It was way back on Bank holiday Monday evening when I finally managed to catch up with two of my lovelies whom were proving hard to pin down. Exhausted of all my ideas I asked F to book and Blanchette in Soho was her (excellent) choice, a place on my hit list to tick off!
