Brasserie Blanc has recently taken over the Chez Gerard restaurant in the amazing venue at the top of Covent Garden. As local residents we were very excited at the thought of a new restaurant take over from Chez Gerard which was appalling! I am so disappointed to say that last night was equally as bad as the ‘old Chez Gerard days’. The food was extremely basic and the sharing platter for 2 people was tiny. I had mussels which were over cooked and the steak verged on inedible. I think the service would have been better if they had had any food coming up from the kitchen to serve. We had to permanently ask for more wine (we were drinking quickly so you would have thought that they would have noticed this and been prepared) and had to ask 3 times for the coffee that we had ordered and 4 times for the bill. The first Irish coffee that they served had no whisky in it…
All in all, a poor effort which is such a shame as it really is the most amazing venue. Raymond Blanc you need to get your finger out – we will not be returning!
