Out Of Office visits Brasserie Blanc, a brasserie set in a Georgian building serving a classically French menu devised by celebrity chef Raymond Blanc
We kicked off our leisurely lunch at Brasserie Blanc in historic Bath by bagging a window seat, the perfect spot for people watching from the corner of pretty Queen’s Square where the restaurant is situated.
From the very beginning of our lunch the service was top notch – the staff were polite and courteous and nothing was too much trouble.
To start we opted for the mediterranean fish soup with the garlic and saffron rouille, croutons and grated cheese. It was a large portion; incredibly rich yet moreish and set the standard for the rest of the meal.
For mains the boeuf bourguignon came highly recommended and it certainly didn’t disappoint. The beef was tender and was accompanied by a deliciously smooth mash and red wine sauce. The duck with blackberry sauce with dauphinoise potato was also utter perfection – the meat was rich and crispy on the outside.
To finish we chose the caramel soufflé with rum and raisin ice cream. The dish took 15 minutes to prepare but worth the wait. The trio of chocolate desserts from the Valentines set menu were also divine – and very generous, as are all the beautifully prepared desserts.
What? This is authentic French food at its best. Decent prices, a welcoming décor and fantastic service make it a top chain restaurant.
Why choose Brasserie Blanc? The smart and modern restaurant with warm and welcoming staff is the perfect place for a leisurely lunch or dinner.
