A Blanc Birthday!

A Blanc Birthday!

Sunday. 4pm. I spent a delicious 2 and a half hours of culinary bliss indulging in one of my favourite restaurants…Blanc’s Brasserie in Winchester. In France at this time the place would be heaving – being England, it was quiet but blissful. The staff here are so unassuming, gentle, polite and welcoming. House wine arrived…and the ordering took little time – a sumptuous rare rump steak for my son, roast beef for my other half, and for my daughter and I, onglet steaks… rare.

Puddings were phenomenal – a trio of delicate ice creams for me – hazelnut, choc and vanilla.

My wife had a stunning hot chocolate mousse and my two kids shared the quite stunning baked alaska.

I accompanied my ice creams with a velvety glass of muscat – it was my birthday meal after all! We then retired to the bar and sank into chairs so comfortable I thought I might sail away…..a double macchiato rounded it all off for me. This place is fantastic value for money…stylish, warm, friendly and somehow homely. I cannot recommend it highly enough. It made my birthday weekend and lifted the fog from the FA cup defeat of my team yesterday!

  1. Keith, I have said it before and I repeat it again, you have a way with words, I just love reading your food ventures! I can actually feel myself sinking into the comfortable chairs and sailing away, blissfully, never wanting to leave the Blanc’s Brasserie, ever! Thank you for sharing your birthday dinner experience. Have a great weekend and my warm regards to your family.
