Blanchette East

Blanchette East

| Shoreditch, Clerkenwell

The original Blanchette was a big hit in Soho, serving up small plates of French cooking. This restaurant has a similar small plates approach as the original, but the menu has expanded to include more influences from South France and North Africa too.

"A mention here for executive chef (for both restaurants) Tam Storror — a chap with a long stint at Bibendum on his CV — who obviously understands the irresistible lure of the simplicity of just sleek potatoes and garlic fried in duck or goose fat." READ REVIEW

"The term “fusion food” is bandied around a lot, but it’s rarely done this well. A low-key bistro with big, ambitious flavours and a changing menu that rewards repeat visits." READ REVIEW

"But the food is more than just aesthetic, it's close to genius - relaxedly rustic, laced with the tastes of Spanish holiday. For at this brand new Brick Lane outpost of Soho's popular French bistro a mix of Mediterranean sharing plates come thick and fast, big meaty flavours finessed with delicate dressings almost dancing over the top."
