Brasserie is not a classic French brasserie in design or concept. And it is unlike any Manhattan restaurant that serves as an American version of a brasserie.

The interior design of Brasserie is a bit like a school cafeteria from the Jetsons' cartoons. It is large, bright with all hard surfaces which mean the noise level is always cranked up.

What fills the room is the quality food prepared by a talented kitchen. The limited menu has a variety of choices. And all are fantastic. Classics such as moules frites bring back fond memories of Paris or Brussels.

The wine list is limited, but adequate to match the food.

The service is uneven and can disappoint.

Brasserie - Acceptable
