Pascal and Sabine is a popular Asbury Park restaurant for millenials and one of the top French brasseries in Monmouth County for ambiance.
This is one of the four Asbury Park restaurants owned by the Smith group, who currently own the popular Porta, Brickwall Tavern, and the Annex.
Pascal and Sabine is an upscale version of a French/European Brasserie where dining patrons come to enjoy quality, simply prepared food, and high end drinks in an atmosphere of elegance.
The interior is eclectic and elegant with an ambiance that is apt to be found in NYC. There is seating for 80 in the dining room, 18 more at the main circular bar (with no TV's) and 20 additional seats in the lounge area, which features a round espresso bar and a salon menu.
The decor is rich in its use of colors, fabrics, wood, mirrored/exposed brick walls and soft lighting, There are cave-like banquettes, artwork of Paolo Ventura, and to enhance the feeling of being in Paris, there is French pop music playing in the background.
There is also a bakery bar with a back entrance for those seeking a fresh baguette to go. Fresh bread is baked daily on the premises.
They serve an excellent Brunch on Saturday & Sunday.
During the warmer months there is outdoor sidewalk seating

New Jersey Leisure Guide strives to provide analytic restaurant reviews .
The methodology used is research, analysis driven --- as opposed to that of a single restaurant critic or a viewer comment posting board.
Data is gathered from our viewers e-mail restaurant comments, Internet research, and professional restaurant critics. The data is sorted, (weeding out the obvious biased, "bone to pick", and out of consensus comments), analyzed, and the review is created.
