dp An American Brasserie Restaurant Review

: Slick décor, a well-stocked mahogany and granite bar (wines by the glass, single malts, brandies and Cognacs) and cityscape views draw everyone from the business-lunch gang to the après-theater crowd from nearby Capital Repertory and music clubs. True to its brasserie designation, you can get anything from a quick bite to a complete meal. Lunch favorites include Santorini lamb salad, steak frites and pork belly bánh mì, while dinnertime brings chicken Gabriel (pistachios, prosciutto, shiitakes, Madeira cream), seafood potpie, and crispy skin Long Island duck with jasmine rice. For dessert, we recommend the “Death by Chocolate,” Kentucky bourbon nut pie and seasonal pastries. Owner/certified sommelier Dominick Purnomo's 600-label wine list means you're rarely without suitable pairing choices.
