“Brasserie 8 1/2 excellent lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2007

On my annual New York visits I invariably have lunch at 8 1/2 and have never been disappointed. The chef seems to be able to take the usually mundane and make it superb. A New Yorker who had lunch with me there in October had not heard of the restaurant. She and her husband returned that same evening. From the service and food to the ambiance it has been excellent.
