ABOUT THE CHEF

RAYMOND BLANC RESTAURANTS

Brasserie Blanc is just one part of Raymond Blanc’s ever-popular restaurant empire.

Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons in Oxford is one of the most celebrated restaurants in the country, and is the culinary vision of Raymond Blanc. The Oxford restaurant is rightfully recognised with two Michelin stars, and is known as one of the “ultimate gastronomic destinations in the country”.

Blanc described his first restaurant, Les Quat’ Saisons, as having “opened in a corridor between a lingerie shop and Oxfam”. Blanc is entirely self-taught, but has gone on to inspire some of the most influential chefs such as Heston Blumenthal, Marco Pierre White and Paul Liebrandt.

THE STORY

HISTORY OF BRASSERIE BLANC

Blanc’s first Brasserie, Le Petit Blanc, opened in 1996 in Oxford. Le Petit Blanc brasserie was awarded a Michelin Star in its first year, as well as being recognised as one of the ten best restaurants in the UK at the time. Following the success of the Oxford Le Petit Blanc, a second venue opened up in Cheltenham in 1998. This was followed by a Birmingham Le Petit Blanc opening in 1999 (which later closed in 2008), Manchester in 2000 and Tunbridge Wells in 2004, although the latter was to close in 2009.

In 2006, Le Petit Blanc was rebranded as Brasserie Blanc. In the years since, multiple new locations have opened, including:

  • 2007 – New sites in Leeds and Milton Keynes

  • 2008 – Bristol and Winchester

  • 2009 – Portsmouth

  • 2010 – Chichester and Threadneedle Street

  • 2012 – Bath, Berkhamsted, St Albans, Chancery Lane, Charlotte Street, Covent Garden (closed in 2016), St Paul’s and Tower Hill

  • 2017 – Brasserie Blanc opened their first restaurant in a hotel. The Bournemouth Highcliff Marriott Hotel, overlooking Poole Bay, was chosen.
