Brasserie de Paris, located ground-floor of the 17-story Sky club apartment building, is as close as you can get to an authentic Parisian brasserie. In France, brasseries are regarded as being more intimate and upscale than bistros.
Beginning with your entrance to the brasserie, you are cordially welcomed by the French Maitre d' Serge greeting guests in his native French language. The ambiance has a decidedly French feel with the managers and hostesses all speaking fluid French.
Brasserie de Paris is popular with French speaking Americans, family diners, couples enjoying a quiet evening in a secluded corner, and for those just wanting a glass of wine to relax after a long day at work.
The attractive curved bar is a popular meeting place for singles grabbing a drink and a bite at the bar, for a pre-dinner specialty cocktail and for having a nightcap before heading home.
On most nights you’ll find the bar area filled with patrons at the bar and at the smaller intimate tables.
The decor is attractive with warm colors, soft lighting, cozy banquettes, distressed mirrors, and brass fixtures.
If available on the evening you are dining, for a cozy romantic dining experience, ask to be seated in the rustic "wine barrel" shaped private room with seating for 10 .
The seasonal menu is decidedly classic French using fresh ingredients. The dishes are well prepared and offered at a moderate price.
The wait staff is friendly, accommodating, and knowledgeable. This is especially the case with Serge when not greeting guests, can be found roaming the floor to ensure diners are pleased
During the warmer months there is a charming outdoor terrace for dining.
Validated, free valet parking is available in the buildings Sky Club.
Child friendly with a kids menu
Brasserie de Paris is open daily for dinner: Monday - Thursday 5pm - 10pm; Friday & Saturday 5pm - 11pm; Sunday 5pm - 9pm; and for Brunch: Saturday & Sunday 11am - 4pm
