Blanchette East | London (UK) | By Lee Fleming

The Blanchette have opened up their second restaurant in London's East End following the success of their Soho restaurant and the IDMCo team can't wait to check it out. Brothers Maxime, Yannis and Malik Alary alongside Sam Storrar who is executive cheff for both eateries chose London's Brick Lane as the ideal setting for the latest expansion of their French sharing plates experience with a modern French menu that's more informed by the country’s southern styles as well as North Africa.

Named after the Alary brothers mother, Blanchette has been designed by design Agency Black Sheep, the space finely balances Parisian Belle Époque with urban East London. The dining room is decorated with antiques sourced from Parisian vintage markets while a white marble counter, rustic wooden and marble tables set the scene in front of a backdrop of distressed walls and ceilings. Blanchette doesn't only serve up great tasting food, the music played a perfect match; a well considered playlist of nu-disco, funk soul classics and new wave sounds curated by Malik (Check out the Blanchette soundcloud here).
