Charlotte street, is jam packed full of amazing restaurants and bars, so much so it can be pretty overwhelming, I mean where do you start? Well we can give you a nod in the direction of Brasserie Blanc, which we recently visited, situated in an old townhouse. It’s a modern and stylish restaurant with three floors. If you so wish to have a private dinning room for you and your friends, you can dine upstairs, in a very luxurious dinning room. We sat in a cosy booth on the ground floor and order a bottle of red wine.
We were very curious to see what the new Spring menu had to offer, which is inspired by Raymond Blanc’s global travels, featuring some mouth-watering exotic dishes, from sweet malabar fish curry to a rich lamb tagine.
For the starter I had the vegetable summer rolls – fresh rice paper rolls with vermicelli noodles, avocado, carrots, mint and cucumber. It was a very light dish, packed full of fresh ingredients. My guest, being a big cheese fan opted for the BB cheese souffle.
For the mains I had the lamb tagine – slow cooked spiced Cornish lamb with apricot, golden sultanas and medjool date, pistachio and almond cous cous. The lamb was nice and tender, cooked perfectly and the cous cous was a real delight, bursting with a lot of flavour.
My guest had the malabar fish curry with toasted coconut – roast hake with aromatic spices and coconut milk, grilled king prawns and coconut rice.
The portion size was very filling, so we took a while to digest our mains before we tucked into the zesty lemon tart for dessert. It was moist and sweet, but not overly sweet. it was a combination of the right sugar hit and heaven on a plate.
This restaurant, is definitely the place you would want to take a date to wine and dine them or to treat a loved one. We shall definitely be back!
