Fodor's Expert Review Brasserie Blanc
Raymond Blanc's sophisticated brasserie in the Jericho neighborhood is the more affordable chain restaurant cousin of Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons in Great Milton. The changing menu always lists a good selection of steaks and innovative adaptations of bourgeois French fare, sometimes with Mediterranean or Asian influences. Try the rich duck confit in cherry sauce or the slow-cooked blade of beef. In a happy concession to more Anglo-Saxon tastes, they also do a fantastic traditional British roast on Sunday.
