Review on Brasserie Blanc
Situated right next to the Theatre Royal in Winchester, this recent addition to the chain of Raymond Blanc brasseries (originally Le Petit Blanc) has the bonus of a summertime terrace and balcony for al fresco meals. Like its siblings, it offers flexible modern French and European food, good-value set menus and a genuinely warm welcome for children.
Raymond Blanc's fingerprints are obvious throughout the seasonal menus, which embrace such things as Brézain smoked cheese soufflé with pears and walnuts, seared sea bream with ratatouille and roast tomato sauce, Toulouse sausages and mash, and desserts such as chocolate and hazelnut délice - not forgetting the croustillant of ice creams and sorbets.
The wine list favours forward-looking French producers and reflects M. Blanc's interest in the current winemaking renaissance. For details of other branches, visit the Brasserie Blanc website.
