Brasserie Blanc now open at Covent Garden's Opera Terrace
Brasserie Blanc is now open in London’s Covent Garden. The restaurant will serve an accessible take on fine French cuisine, from its sensational setting in the iconic Opera Terrace of the bustling London marketplace. The restaurant celebrated its opening night with a troop of can-can girls yesterday – frolics carried on into the evening at a launch party for invited guests including Britt Ekland, Sir Terence Conran and Pink Floyd’s Nick Mason.
The venue is to offer the chic and traditional charm befitting Raymond’s vision for his brasseries. Situated beneath a spectacular arched glass ceiling and offering views across the piazza, the Grade II-listed building housing this latest addition to the Brasserie Blanc collection is a sight to behold. The decor offers all the grandeur of a traditional Parisian brasserie, with a contemporary twist.
Brasserie Blanc is Raymond’s way of extending the cooking he remembers at home in Besançon to hungry Londoners. The restaurants offer sensational French cuisine at accessible prices. Raymond describes his Brasseries as the Can Can, explaining, “if the Manoir is a delicate waltz then the Brasseries are the Can Can.”
Dishes offer the best of seasonal French cuisine. Menus are created by Raymond Blanc, who has been inspired by his mother, the legendary Maman Blanc. What’s on offer will change with the seasons, allowing the chefs of Brasserie Blanc to make the most of fine ingredients cooked simply.
