Wow! I went to Brasserie 8 1/2 recently with my coworkers for an after work drink. The cocktails were wonderful and cheeper than anyone in town. Never have I been to a place with ...

I have been to many resturants and I usually order a bottle of wine for $100 or more. When my glass is empty I would expect them to refill the glass. I had to fill both of our win...

Stunning presentations 4/28/2006

I've never come here for dinner or brunch, but I think you can't go wrong here. It is an elegant Continental/fusion style restaurant that presents everything beautifully. The calamari, for instance, comes in a wavy bowl. The soft shell crab I have tried had a tower of tomatoes with balsamic vinegar sprinkled on top. The warm chocolate cake (that is so yummy and is served with vanilla ice cream) is a work of art. One person who I ate with ordered the bento box of chocolate desserts. It was so cute! I actually saw Brasserie 8 1/2's dessert chef on the Food Network too. The prices are a bit high (considering I am from New Jersey), but I think it was worth it. The waiters are attentive and the decor is very well-blended. I think it's not all the food (which is above-average), it's the look of the place that makes Brasserie 8 1/2 a worthwhile eatery. You feel as if you are in awe when you walk down that curvaceous stairway into the restaurant. more

Brasserie 8 1/2: a feast for your eyes AND your stomach 3/27/2006

Brasserie 8 1/2 is one of my favorite restaurants in the city. The restaurant itself is beautiful, with a winding red staircase that leads you to the bar. The seafood is DELICIOUS: fresh lobster, crispy calamari, and moist fish. The food not only tastes good, it looks good as well; the plates, which are decorated with special flowery designs and dots, are very aesthetically pleasing. The desserts and cocktails are also excellent. more

brasserie 8 1/2 3/23/2006

this brasserie located in midtown west is very modern looking and features an art collection. when you walk in, you walk down a flight of curvy stairway to the dining room area which is really glamorous looking. the food was quite good but i was more impressed with the decor, space, and atmosphere. Worth a try if you happen to be in the area. more

Perfect for Brunch 3/9/2006

Brasserie 8 1/2 is one of my favorite places for brunch (on a special occasion or just a regular old Sunday). Come with an empty stomach and plenty of room for desserts (they are laid out on the bar beneath the winding staircase that leads into the cocktail lounge). You can feast on things from the simple (plain omelette) to the divine (one of the best carveries in brunchland). Alcohol is not served until noon, I believe, so you may have to wait for your Bloody or Mimosa. I have also enjoyed lunch & dinner here! more

Editorial

  • In Short
    A sweeping spiral staircase allows everyone to make a grand entrance at this subterranean spot. The space is blessed with two bars--one near the lounge rotunda filled with low slung leather chairs; the other stretches the length of the spacious and colorful dining room. Executive Chef Julian Alonzo, a Bouley disciple, cooks new American cuisine with French and Asian influences. Zucchini blossoms and crab cake are among the first courses, with arctic char, roasted pig, filet mignon as entrees.
