SquareMeal Review of Brasserie Blanc Threadneedle Street

As the supremo behind Michelin grandee Le Manoir aux Quat’ Saisons, Raymond Blanc talks a good game on his TV show, The Restaurant, but more to the point, he also delivers in the marketplace. His informal chain, Brasserie Blanc, brings gastronomic joy to a select few towns (the list continues to grow), courtesy of classical & regional French food that is ‘elegant & appropriate’ rather than earth-shattering. Smoked Lyburn cheese soufflé or ‘Maman Blanc’s miscellany of salads’ are highly original ways to get started, ahead of robust mains of steak-frites, rack of Cornish lamb with rösti or Cheddar cheese & onion tart. Dessert isn’t the usual mousse au chocolat; instead, try buttonholing a date or buddie into sharing a flamed baked Alaska. French wines direct from the producer & three menus for kids are further reasons to be impressed.

The food was well presented and well cooked. The steak was excellent as was the hake. Service was prompt and so we were out in about an hour, as we required.

I booked this restaurant for my boss and his client and when I asked his opinion he said the restaurant was good and fairly good value for money.

We ate as a group of 6 for an early dinner midweek; the bar area was busy though we were seated in the main dining area. It's a large space for the City; our service was efficient at this early point in the evening. We had a mixture of starters (beetroot salad, charcuterie, snails) and several mains - Steak Tartare, steak frites, mussels, duck and venison casserole (particularly good). Some reasonably priced wines, including my current fave a Picpoul at £22.50, and a Rioja at £26. With sundry teas and a pudding it came out at £40 pp before service. Pretty reasonable when catering for a business audience in the middle of town. Note Threadneedle St is much nearer Bank Tube than Moorgate or Liverpool Street as mentioned in the address details on its Squaremeal page.
