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.
