The Brasserie is a stunning reincarnation of New York's original 1959 Brasserie, and showcases
award-winning designs of Diller and Scofidio and the gutsy modern brasserie fare of executive chef
Luc Dimnet. The menu demonstrates a bold use of flavor and unexpected taste to classic French
brasserie fare. Savor traditional dishes including Onion Soup Gratinèe and Maine Bouchot Mussels
Marinière or modern plates like Gougonettes of Cod and Long Island Duck Breast and Confit, superb
desserts (especially crème brûlée), and contemporary takes on traditional brasserie fare. The cozy and
lush booths are especially prized, but seats at the bar are perfect for being seen and watching the crowd.
