SquareMeal Review of
Brasserie Blanc Chancery Lane
Pitched in the heart of London’s legal district, this branch of Raymond Blanc’s user-friendly brasserie chain is spread over two levels, with the upper floor morphing into a wine bar as the
post-work crowd moves in for drinks and socialising Rich oak panelling, wooden floors and booth seating create just the right mood for head-to-head business lunches or congenial get-togethers. To
start, share a ‘plateau varié’ (deli board) or go for ‘Maman Blanc’s miscellany of salads’ before sampling steak-frites, devilled lamb’s kidneys with sautéed potatoes or grilled scallops with
truffle mash and braised fennel. For afters, why not order Valrhona chocolate crumble or go for a poached pear with butterscotch sauce. Two-course set menus (from £10.95 lunch, £14 dinner), various
kids’ deals and Gallic regional wines direct from the producer are further reasons to be impressed.
