9 d'Arbley Street
London, W1F 8DP
Blanchette opens this week on D’Arblay Street in Soho. Run by three brothers, Maxime, Yannis and Malik Alary, the quintessentially Parisian restaurant is named after their mother and will serve classic French sharing plates with a modern twist.
Head chef is Tam Storrar, former senior sous chef at Bibendum, and the menu showcases adaptations of traditional dishes, including chargrilled beef onglet with snails en persillade, salsify chips and red wine reduction, ox cheeks bourguignon with ventreche, warm confit of salmon and duck with puy lentils and herbs and prune and armagnac clafoutis with crème fraiche for dessert. The wine list features wines from all over France plus a selection of organic Normandy ciders.
In the dining room, the design features mismatched furniture and artwork, and antiques sourced from Helene Allen of Little Paris. The vibe is ‘rustic country home grandeur’: plants, wine bottles, hams, terrines, cheeses and desserts are displayed along the back of the bar.
Music will also play a big part at Blanchette, with Malik, founder of sound design company La Music du Faubourg in charge of tunes conducive to the atmosphere plus there will be occasional live music with small jazz and acoustic musicians playing during Sunday brunch.
Salt Yard Group co-founder Simon Mullins and Chef Director Ben Tish, good friends with the brothers, are on board as consultants and stakeholders in the new venture. Blanchette will seat 50-60 with a private dining room for 14-16.
Our french and dedicated team are here to listen to you for your request. We will be able to build your selection for Christmas from 8.- pounds to 200.- pounds, men, woman, kids, decorations, leather, accessories.

When night falls, I will go to my new favorite restaurant, perched 7 floors above the oberkamph district with soaring views till scare coeur. Benoît Dumas le chef treats you to the most amazing dinner which consists of a fixed menu in this modern, industrial themed environment. And yet it's all so charmingly *French*.
On Sunday I will do a little bit of history and go to the Museum of the art decoratif who present a new exhibition' La mecanique des dessous, une histoire indiscrete de la silhouette ' this exhibition explores the ‘underworld’ of female and male undergarments such as the fly, the pannier, the corset, the crinoline,...
On monday direction Drouot, and the Bouillon Chartier for a real french lunch. I wouldn't say Chartier has the best quality French food in Paris, but if you're looking for a Parisian cafe experience, this is probably the best you can get at great prices!! And, if you've never had escargots before and you want to find a place to try it, Chartier is the place to go! Of course this stop, will help me to be prepared for the Drouot auctions.
I will finish by a coffee in the bar and brasserie The Drouot who is rhythm by the actions that follow in the eponymous hotel nearby and for an unique experience you need to tried once ;)...
