  • Yes, I would go back!

I thought this was going to be another one of those restaurants in a club where the food plays second fiddle to the party. BOY WAS I WRONG. Julian Alonzo (Brasserie 8 1/2) has created a unique and affordable menu. The food is outstanding and the ambience is terrific. You can have a wonderful meal, have a drink in the lounge and then go downstairs to hear live music. I went with a large group so I was able to try a lot...highly recommend the scallops, sea bass and the pork and the chocolate cake is to die for. Can't wait to go back often.
