Knutsford locals are to get a touch of je ne sais quois as Raymond Blanc opens his Brasserie Blanc on the site of the Loch Fyne restaurant in the Royal George Building, Regent Street.

General manager Andrew Giles says: ‘Brasserie Blanc is focused on freshly cooked food, seasonal produce and a menu that changes with the seasons. And of course it has a French theme.

‘This will be the 19th Brasserie Blanc in the UK but Brasserie Blanc is very much like a family company and everything is focused on fresh and seasonal.

‘It’s really quite exciting, as so many of the restaurants in Knutsford are Italian so it’s adding to the variety here. The building is Grade II listed and Knutsford is a brilliant location as there’s such a lot goes on here.’

In a recent interview, Raymond Blanc said: ‘This place [The Royal George, in Knutsford], is the place of the original café society of Knutsford; I like this. It reflects the café society of Paris, where writers and artists gather – I like this association with the history of this building. Here you have knowledgeable customers - curious, bon vivant – and where a restaurant can really be part of a community and not separate from it. To me this is very important: food connects with everything and everyone.

‘When you make a business commitment it’s not only this, it’s a commitment to the whole community, a collective movement to putting food at the heart of our society. The name Blanc can somehow dampen the enthusiasm, but I assure you our values are of fun and generosity and good food and sustainability.’
