A rare pearl among our careful selection of the best addresses right now

Cuando inauguraron el hotel Mandarin Oriental de Barcelona, donde está ubicado Blanc, sus portavoces hicieron gala de los precios de las habitaciones: las más caras de la ciudad. Una estrategia que por lo visto les ha dado mucho éxito. Pero no podían hacer lo mismo en todos sus restaurantes, así que en Blanc han optado por una brasserie y gastrobar donde, además de comer o cenar, también se puede desayunar o disfrutar de un brunch dominical.

La calidad de la oferta gastronómica está más que asegurada porque la carta lleva la firma de Carme Ruscalleda, poseedora de siete estrellas Michelin (dos de ellas por Moments, también en el Mandarin Oriental). En Blanc se cocina con productos de temporada de primera categoría, sin enmascararlos con técnicas extremas. Se puede comprobar en las tapas o en los platos más elaborados, la mayoría de ellos de raíz mediterránea. El interiorismo, muy amplio y luminoso (nunca un nombre de restaurante ha sido tan acertado), ayuda a rematar la agradable experiencia gastronómica.

INSIDER tip

Uno de los ganchos de Blanc es su horario: está abierto todos los días del año durante todo el día (de 7.30 a 23.30 horas).

    We book a table for 5 on a Sunday evening. The restaurant was empty most of the time. The starters were fine, but nothing special. Homemade breads were really good. We ordered the filet mignon (4) and the beef cheek, recommended by the maître. Our main dishes were served cold, and the beef cheek was impossible to be eaten, tough and full of fat and nerves. When we were ordering desert, my daughter asked the suflê. The maître repeatedly told her that this desert would take more than 30min to be served (it says 20min in the menu)...obviously trying to hush things up. We turned then to creme Catalans which were served with a taste of black smoke (burned taste). Bad experience, bad service. Not expected from such a place.

    If you enjoy luxury by itself, this is your place. If you are looking for a grastronomical experience, you will be deeply disappointed. We thought that the name of Carme Ruscalleda would be a great experience and it has been only a great cost.

    The menú was somewhat disappointing. Nothing special. There are many places in Barcelona where the food is better and the price more accurate.

    We were offered a smaller table in a corner while we were one of the first guests. The waitress said the other tables were already assigned; however, when we left after our brunch, quite some of them were still empty. The food offer is ok, but with no exceptional dishes. The sushi was certainly homemade, given the big chunks of fish. The veal had to be warmed again. Unfortunately, the experience didn't meet our expectations since we visited the Mandarin Oriental and their restaurants a few times before.
