Harden's says

Soho's Gallic “gem” Blanchette branches out with a second site in east London's always buzzing Brick Lane. Expect classic French small plates as well as new dishes with influences from southern France and North Africa.

For 25 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 60,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.


“A touch of France in the centre of London” – this “buzzing” two-year-old “feels like it’s been in Soho for years” and is “an excellent place for the price”. “Traditional-ish Gallic dishes with a tapas twist”“rustically presented and packed with flavour” – include “a good selection of regional French cheeses and charcuterie”. ‘Blanchette East’ opened in mid-August 2016 on east London’s curry mile, with a similar menu, but also new Southern French and North African dishes.
