New look Brasserie Blanc Opens In Milton Keynes

Date Posted:29/04/2015

Brasserie Blanc Milton KeynesBrasserie Blanc, in The Hub on Avebury Boulevard has undergone an extensive renovation giving the all-day restaurant a brand new lease of life. With a menu as delicious as ever – now serving breakfast – the restaurant has been dramatically updated and decked out with beautifully simple décor, rustic yet comfortable furniture and a wealth of home-from-home touches.

Chez Nous
Inspired by Raymond’s own kitchen where friends and family gather around the table to celebrate authentic French food, there are plenty of comfortable spots to stay and linger.  Relax with a café au lait in a cosy upholstered armchair in the new lounge; indulge in a leisurely meal at the communal kitchen table with friends or dine al fresco on the newly built terrace, which can accommodate up to 40 guests.

Formal white crockery and tablecloths have been replaced with handmade ceramics, tapestry and natural linens to give a more relaxed, homely feel. Hues of greys and blues, olive leather banquette seating and patterned fabrics give a welcoming, homely feel, whilst the circular booth seating to the rear with vintage table lamps add a touch of French glamour.  

The cheese and wine counter, entirely bright white tiled, allows guests to enjoy a seasonal selection of artisanal British and French favourites paired with exceptional wines by the glass or bottle.

Bon Appetit!
Serving simple, hearty French classics, Brasserie Blanc’s menu reads like a storybook of the flavours from Raymond Blanc’s childhood.  Prepared from scratch by skilled chefs, the à la carte menu changes seasonally and is filled with the best of British Isles produce treated with delicate French finesse.

Now open from 8:30am daily, stop in for a fresh pastry and rejuvenating coffee for working breakfasts or linger over a lazy morning brunch with eggs Royale, a croque monsieur or a full English.

Lunch and dinner is delicieux with light dishes of Gravadlax with spring vegetable salad, Scottish queen scallops or spring pea risotto. Meander through a host of traditional classics, including slow-cooked beef Bourguignon with mousseline potatoes, coarse cut Comté burger in a pillowy brioche bun and roasted Norfolk quail with golden sultanas and new potatoes. Expect decadent desserts of deep pistachio soufflé, baked lemon tart, and a chocolate delice with praline panna cotta and nougatine crumble.

For a lighter post-work bite, catch up with friends over a chilled glass of Sauvignon Blanc (wines by the bottle starts from £16.95) whilst nibbling on sharing plates that include charcuterie platters laden with French meats and sourdough bread with a selection of dips; from just £9.95 for two-course lunch and £14.45 for dinner, the reasonably priced set-value menus are perfect for a light lunch or quick supper.

The beautiful pewter bar has been retained, yet refreshed and is flanked by walnut bar stools with simplified overhead lighting. Naturellement, the well-crafted wine list features stunning French grapes by region and a selection of international bins, as well as Brasserie Blanc’s very own sparkling wine, Mousseux Premium Blanc de Blancs. The cocktail menu offers creative specials, from a Rose Petal Martini to an Apple Mojito, as well as the expertly made classics such as Dark ‘N’ Stormy and Bramble.

Pull up a chair and share a selection of French favourites at Milton Keynes’ new-look Brasserie Blanc.
