French bread

French celebrity chef Raymond Blanc has said the vast £1 billion Liverpool One scheme ‘eez not posh enough’ for one of his restaurants.

The Michelin-starred gastronome had planned to locate his new Brasserie Blanc in the Grosvenor-backed development. But the managing director of Blanc’s enterprise told the Liverpool Echo: ‘I hate saying it, we are slightly too posh for a precinct.’ Ooh la la! It seems it doesn’t matter if the scheme includes projects by Cesar Pelli, Wilkinson Eyre and John McAslan – Blanc n’aime pas! Instead he is looking for period property in the city.
