Met friends at Braise for dinner tonight. Had heard a lot about its opening and was looking forward to giving it a try. Centrally located in Va Beach so handy for all to try. Shortly after being seated a warm basket of rolls were brought to the table. We started with the crab cake appetizer and our friends tried the pork belly and asparagus soup. All were very good. The ladies went with the fish of the day (halibut) and both thought it was excellent. For the guys, one of us tried the bone in ribeye steak and I went with the etouffee. The steak was very large( 20 oz+) and served with a large dish of augraten potatoes. The etouffee was loaded with large shrimp, clams, crawfish, and rich spicy broth. We splurged and tried desserts - crème brulee', neapolitan sorbet and the special tapioca with orange sorbet. All were very good. Our waitress was very attentive and did a great job providing recommendations. A bit pricey - over $120 for the two of us, but very good and would definitely recommend.
