One the best additions to the Virginia Beach dining scene is Braise. I've been here 3 times in the last month. Twice for lunch and once for dinner. ALL meals were great. The menu is excellent.
This location was once Forbidden City in Princess Ann Plaza. It's easy to miss, but one you want to find. Entering Braise, you're transported to a roomy bar and dining room unlike anything you would expect from the outside.
For those who have been in the area awhile, will know Monroe Duncan, a great Cajun Chef. The Chef at Braise is a protégé of Monroe. I guess that's why the Bouillabaisse is so great (the first dish I ever had at Braise). Of course, you go to a place called Braise, you want something braised. The chicken and the short ribs fall off the bone and melt in your mouth. A business associate had a "horseradish tuna" that was very flavorful.
The prices are reasonable (under $25) and best of all, the wines are interesting and a good value (most under $25).
The service is first class and I can't wait to go back. I have a "wish list" of entrée I'd like to try. I hope to see you there.
