Time Out Says

Far and away one of the city’s most attractive restaurants, entering Bleu Blanc is a bit like walking into a new acquaintance’s house and discovering they have your dream living room. But don’t enviously yearn for that rug or those light fixtures for too long – the cooking here deserves your undivided attention.

From American-born chef David Myers, the restaurant’s French country house theme is evident both in the setting and selection of dishes on the menu. Several of which are cooked over the showpiece wood fire (quell that envy again), which snaps and crackles throughout.

For the love of all that is good and dairy in this world, do not be so churlish as to miss the butter-poached lobster risotto starter, with its zesty ping of kaffir lime. Not rich enough for your Tudorian palette? Go for the outrageously savoury oxtail toast, bread sagging with juices.

Steaks, done over the aforementioned fire, are satisfyingly charred and generously seasoned, served with an unexpected – but not at all unpleasant – flourish of lamb’s lettuce.

Service, meanwhile, is superb – attentive without being overbearing, forthcoming with recommendations without veering towards the more extravagantly priced dishes on the menu. And speaking of prices, be prepared to splash out. High-end ingredients come with the digits to match, though they’re absolutely worth it.

Eat here as soon as you can.
