Brasserie is full up at lunch and much of the day with hungry diners who love classic French gastronomy. It features everything that good French bistros or brasseries have to offer right down to the authentic wood and mirrored interior. From salad nicoise to beef tartar, paté en croute or herring with potatoes and a full oyster bar, the menu is nearly exhaustive. And because rituals are important, every day of the week has its own speciality: Sunday is poulet à la moutarde or chicken with mustard, Monday is pot au feu, followed by choucroute, coq au vin, beef bourguignon, bouillabaisse or cassoulet. All of the regions of France are represented. In addition the fries are excellent, served in a paper cone in a pretty glass, while the dessert menu features classics such as crêpes Suzette, Millefeuille, tarte tatin, or riz au lait. BRASSERIE is remarkable in that it manages to recreate a little corner of France through its gastronomy, while respecting all of the traditions. It is a pity that all of the French wine growing regions are not as clearly represented. For lunch you mustn’t be in a hurry as they don’t take reservations and you must patiently wait your turn. However, they do take dinner reservations.
