Flagship Brasserie Blanc to be refurbished

Brasserie Blanc, the 17-strong French restaurant chain led by celebrity chef Raymond Blanc, has announced that its flagship restaurant and bar on London’s Southbank will be renovated.

The restaurant will be closed from the end of January and is set to re-open in early March.

The refurbishment process forms part of a wider re-branding strategy across the group, with the chain’s Trinity Street and Threadneedle Street restaurant having undergone the same treatment.

A new 35-cover cocktail bar will be installed at the site, and the 136-cover main dining room will include a communal kitchen table to encourage a casual dining experience and atmosphere.

The current private dining space will see an increase in space, enabling it to cater for 70-covers seated or 100 guests standing. There will be an opportunity to split this space into two private dining areas, one with 22-cover and the other with the capability to serve 40. The 16-cover outdoor terrace will also receive renovation.

The restaurant will work with design agency Blacksheep to create a ‘stripped-back’ interior that makes use of a range of natural materials and a muted colour palette of heritage tones.

Chief executive Mark Derry said: “Being in such a prominent, high footfall location, Brasserie Blanc Southbank is our flagship London restaurant and its huge capacity means we can cater for a vast range of group sizes.  The refurbishment will transform it into a more inviting and versatile space for local office workers and tourists to enjoy.”
