Brasserie may be a misnomer for this chic restaurant, a partnership between Georges Perrier, chef-owner of the haute cuisine temple Le Bec Fin, and executive chef Chris Scarduzio. The menu is basically French with international influences: you can go from tuna tartare to veal tenderloin with spätzle, from bouillabaisse to hoisin-glazed Peking duck. The plats du jour reflect Perrier's desire to emphasize a traditional brasserie ambience. Among the desserts are a warm chocolate cake with raspberry sauce and a classic vanilla bean crème brûlée. The extensive wine list contains many treasures, but there are surprises from small vineyards and little-known shippers in the Loire Valley and the Languedoc. The glittering bar attracts a thirty-something professional crowd, and features its own menu. You will find meticulous appointments, flattering lighting and a professional waitstaff.
