Knutsford restaurant crowned Restaurant of the Year
Knutsford’s Brasserie Blanc has been crowned Restaurant of the Year in the 2017 Cheshire Life Food and Drink Awards after months of secret restaurant visits by the awards team.
The prestigious industry accolade comes just a year after the restaurant’s launch in the refurbished Royal George building on Regent Street. Owned by Michelin-starred chef Raymond Blanc’s group, the restaurant serves classic French food, cocktails specials and bespoke French wine.
General Manager of Brasserie Blanc, James Billson, said of the awards win: “We were really happy to be nominated for the award, and obviously even happier when we found out that we had won! The great thing about the Restaurant of the Year award and the judging process is that it reviews the restaurant as a whole from a customer’s perspective rather than just on certain aspects so it means a lot to us. We’re working really hard to maintain our standards and have lots of local events in the community planned over the rest of the year.”
Owned by Michelin-starred chef Raymond Blanc’s group, Brasserie Blanc was launched last year in the Royal George building on Regent Street in Knutsford. The Grade II-listed building has been host to many authors over the year, including Elizabeth Gaskell, which proved the inspiration for a magic-themed event taking place for customers at the Knutsford Heritage Open Days in September.
