Nibble frogs legs and sip peach soup surrounded by Parisian antiques while listening to nu-disco at this new Brick Lane restaurant.
Blanchette East is the second venue from brothers Maxime, Yannis and Malik Alary and is named after their mother.
The 70-seater venue takes popular elements from the Soho original and adds a few twists. Dishes are flavoured with spices from Southern French and North African and the décor is inspired by the Parisian Belle Époque era and urban East London.
There is a white marble dining counter, wooden tables and a large mural replica of a Picasso sketch in the private dining area.
Executive chef Tam Storrar has put together a menu featuring dishes such as crispy frog’s legs with bois boudran sauce, merguez sausage rolls with harissa mayonnaise, lamb tagine with apricot and pomegranate yoghurt and chilled peach and saffron soup.
The drinks menu has French, Spanish and Italian wines and classic cocktails while the playlist curated by Malik blends elements of nu-disco, funk soul classics and new wave.
