Topic: Brasserie Blanc/ Cote-Restaurant Chains

The general malaise of the UK reasonably priced, yet tasty places to eat has always been a bit depressing. Trying to find anything worthwhile among the Prezzo, Pizza Express, Jamie's,  Caluccios cardboard has always been hard.

For now both Brasserie Blanc and Cote are worth a wander if you fancy reasonably priced, well cooked French classics served well. All the basics, none of the bullshit. Had a family meal in Cote last night, moules etc to start, fillet, duck and chateaubriand as mains, half a bottle of wine. £130 for 4 plus tip.

All of us came away having enjoyed and would go again, which makes a change from the usual endured.

I went to a Cote on Charlotte Street in London. Nice food, table outside, very Paris. Thought same thing, good quality for a chain.

Also did the Wahaca on there once as well. Nice food

Blanc have a very reasonable early bird menu.

I'd offer you a beer, but I've only got six cans.

Cote in Brighton is very good. Beautiful building as well. Generally go for my brunch on the weekend.
