Squaremeal Review of Brasserie Blanc Southbank ?

Situated between Waterloo Bridge and the Royal Festival Hall, this branch of Raymond Blanc’s user-friendly brasserie chain is tailor-made for commuters, families and culture vultures en route to exhibitions or live performances. Start with a drink in the bar, before moving into the main dining room for reasonably priced helpings of French bourgeois food. To start, try a bowl of sweetcorn velouté or share a ‘plateau varié’ (deli board), before sampling steak-frites, grilled Loch Fyne salmon fillet with sauce choron or wild mushroom risotto with a parmesan crisp. For afters, share a flamed baked Alaska or go for an Anglo-French alliance of treacle sponge with Cointreau 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. There are also alfresco tables on the terrace.

I had a confirmed reservation at Brasserie Blanc for 6 weeks. Less than 6 hours before the restaurant called to say they had taken a celebrity booking for the whole place and our booking was cancelled. Really shocking. I used to be a regular but no more.

A totally unexpected disappointment!

After watching a great afternoon matinee theatre performance we were looking forward with great hungry anticipation to our meal at Brasserie Blanc. For the first time ever we had not looked at any reviews beforehand, expecting rather foolishly that we could not go wrong with a restaurant with such an esteemed chef owner. How wrong we were. The two mains we chose were quite the most unpleasant we can remember having anywhere ....bland, tasteless and amateurish cooking and presentation. We were...

The restaurant is dark and sub-teranean. Service was acceptable though standard of spoken english poor. The food was acceptable, but the wine served warm. We were expecting a better all around fare, certainly not as good as the city outlet, in every respect.

    Brasserie Blanc Southbank has reopened with a spiffy new look. I liked what I saw (and tasted) during my recent snoop.
    Revered Chef Raymond Blanc’s growing group of French restaurants has been mentioned with a nom-nom-nod of approval on this blog before – just not by me. An invitation to admire the refurb and the menu at Blanc’s Southbank brasserie rectified that matter and resulted in a lovely night out in a stylish setting.
    I don’t known what the place looked like pre-renovations, but it’s certainly pleasant now. There’s a nice terrace at the front for outdoor seating and a smart and cozy bar just inside...

Raymond Blanc

'RB’ came to England from Besançon in 1972, originally to work as a waiter in Oxford. Entirely self-taught (unless you count the influence of his dear mother ‘Maman Blanc’), he opened Les Quat’ Saisons in Oxford in 1977, followed by Le Manoir aux Quat’ Saisons just outside the city in 1984. Among his other achievements are an honorary OBE, a French knighthood and the founding of the now 20-strong Brasserie Blanc group.
