Voulez-Vous Manger Avec Moi - This Valentine's Day?!
Trust the French to get our romantic juices flowing as the big day approaches... Here's our top recommendation for a tres chaud date this February.
Blanchette has all the romance of Paris, yet manages to avoid all the cliches associated with that particular 'R' word. It's cool, even a little quirky, but not in-your-face contemporary, retaining the warmth or a traditional French bistro. The food is superb, and we think that the sharing plate vibe makes it the perfect Valentine's Day destination - who doesn't want to fall deeper in love over a board of fine French cheese? Other menu highlights include the Crispy Black Squid with Lemon and Caper Dressing and the Ox Cheek Bourguignon with Aligot, Onion Ring and Lardons. Feeling brave? Feed each other Crispy Frogs Legs with a Bois Boudran sauce.
