Square Meal Review of Blanchette ?

Run by three French brothers and backed by the Salt Yard Group, Blanchette takes the essence of a Parisian bistro and gives it the small-plates treatment. Bare-brick walls, eclectic furniture and a scattering of home-style knick-knacks (from teapots to dolls) create a playful, cool look, with low lights and flickering candles adding a warm, romantic glow. The menu features all-French charcuterie and good-value cheeses alongside a raft of dishes ranging from addictively crispy pigs’ ears with just the right texture to bigger helpings of gutsy grilled beef onglet accompanied by intensely rich, earthy gravy and tangy, parsley-sauced snails or elegantly presented fillet of sea bass in brown butter with capers and baby gem. Service is more smiley than the Gallic stereotype, making this a seriously good French eatery that doesn’t take itself too seriously at all.

    Frenchy love food :: BLANCHETTE

    After several attempts which failed before Christmas to go to the new French bistro Blanchette in Soho, last week I managed to go there and had lunch. The decoration and atmosphere as soon as you arrive makes you feel in France, with a lot of French objects from a Bécassine doll to the Gérard Depardieu cookbook (I didn't know he wrote one before I saw it there). Tiles at the bar are painted with an Art-Nouveau style frame like Nover from the 1900's, and on the counter you can see some fresh products such as French baguette, saucisson, charcuteries and cheese...

  3. A while back three French brothers (two of which used to be part of the Salt Yard group) decided to open a French bistro, et voila, London is now blessed with yet another brilliant French bistro. One of the best French bistros in London at the moment (with Brawn, Androuet, Casse Croute and 10 Cases). The dishes are imaginative and very well executed...
