About Brasserie Blanc Oxford
Inspired by French chef Raymond Blanc, Brasserie Blanc brings a taste of France to the historical city of Oxford. Hosting a range of French classics and international cuisines, Blanc’s no-fuss-or-frills cooking are led by fresh and seasonal ingredients. The contemporary and comfortable interior and French-inspired outdoor seating make for a laid-back environment, ideal for enjoying a meal and a glass of wine after a day of seeing the sights in the city.
The all-day dining option makes it a great spot for quick breakfasts and relaxed evening meals alike. The breakfast menu keeps things conventional with the option of a full English, smoked salmon and scrambled eggs and smashed avocados. Or if you’re in a rush the house granola or selection of pastries and is great for on the go.
Blanc, famous for his incredible knowledge of French cooking, showcases this in the a la carte menu. Try the escargots to start if you’re feeling really adventurous. But don’t worry if you aren’t, because the chicken liver parfait or asparagus with soft poached egg is sure to tickle your taste buds.
For mains you can choose from a selection of French dishes, such as slow-cooked boeuf bourguignon or moules frites. However, as Blanc himself said, he believes ‘travel enriches my food’ something that is evident in the international section of the menu. The Venetian-style grilled cod with preserved lemon marinade and chili squid is sure to add something different to your meal. Or if you are a sucker for Moroccan cuisine, the lamb tagine is for you.
Desserts include both fresh and fruity options and hearty homey puddings. If you’re craving chocolate, try the chocolate feuillantine – a classic, French dessert. Or if you’re looking to get your five a day, the summer berry pavlova (it counts, we promise) is too good to miss.
French cuisine can sometimes seem complicated and intimidating, but Brasserie Blanc simplifies its dishes and makes the dining experience in its restaurants one to remember.
