Food Mission
Mixed Feelings

The atmosphere is way too modern for my taste, but I could see others liking it. I had a really hard time finding something on the menu that sounded appetizing. My boyfriend called before our date to make sure they could accommodate a vegetarian. He was told that the chef was really great about making changes. However, their idea of ""changes"" meant cutting out the meat sections of the dinner without replacing i... view more

Great Lunch on 5th Avenue

I had lunch at Brasserie 8 1/2 with some friends. We had the Kampachi Sashimi ($18), MIxed Green Salad ($12),Lobster Club ($26), and the Coca Cola Cobb Salad ($22). Everything was artistically presented especially the Coca Cola Cobb. The flavors were as vibrant as the art work throughout the restaurant. Service was outstanding genuinely attentive. I'll certainly be back soon!!!!

Best Bar Snacks In Manhattan

Wow! I went to Brasserie 8 1/2 recently with my coworkers for an after work drink. The cocktails were wonderful and cheeper than anyone in town. Never have I been to a place with so many wonderful bar snacks. Everything from goat cheese croquetts to crostini with tomato was all delicious and not to mention all freebies. How could I forget the spanish style tortas and the mini croque monsieurs. 8 1/2 is my new after ... view more

The Art of the Chicken

Brasserie 8 1/2 is perfectly located along 5th Avenue. A great proximity to shopping, which is why my girlfriends and I went. Among the many things we had, there was one of honorable mention. The chicken. It was rubbed with anchovie and preserved lemon and cooked to a beautiful golden brown in the rotisserie. The moment I bit into the perfectly crisp skin, I knew they had mastered the art of cooking a perfect chi... view more

Easter Brunch

My family and I had Easter Brunch at Brasserie 8 1/2. They offered a wonderful array of items on the Buffet. From Omelettes to Gravlox, everything was wonderfully prepared. The pinnacle of Brunch besides the Easter Bunny would definately be the BBQ pork. So smokey and rich. I won't forget this one anytime soon. The brisket was spot on too. Never have I tasted it so tender, and with the saltyness of the cabbage, it ... view more

Dry Aged Duck

My mother and I recently had theatre tickets so we thought of Brasserie 8 1/2. They are a short distance from Broadway. We voiced our time restrictions which was gracefully met. We skipped the appetizer and just had entrees. I had the ""dry aged duck"". Apparently they hang their ducks peking style and let them dry over a period of several days. It was simply pan roasted and served with foie gras spatzle ($30). I nev... view more

A Must Have

I did lunch at 8 1/2 recently. The Lobster Bolognese is ""A Must Have"". The handmade angel hair was a perfect al dente. The service was wonderful. Our server, Jessica, really made us feel at home. She went out of her way to chat with us about the happenings around town. So many restaurants are about ""turn and burn"" in midtown, but not 8 1/2. I felt like we owned the table.

I had lunch at 8 1/2 on Friday. It was just wonderful. Great location and I didn't have to wonder far from 5th Avenue. I had the Coca Cola Cobb Salad. It was a great riff on a classic. The chicken for the salad was marinated in Coca Cola and then fried. It was really tasty. Service couldn't be better. Geoffrey was very nice.

Best Brunch NYC

What a wonderful brunch. The huge shrimp and oysters were delicious. The salads were fresh and light. The roast beef was a perfect medium rare. All of the beautiful deserts makes it hard to watch carbs. Delicious, Delicious, Delicious!

New & Fresh

I recently had dinner at Brasserie 8 1/2. Being a fish lover, I appreciate chefs who devote some attention to the subject. The selection of crudo and fish was over the top. The Hamachi in Avocado was superb. I really enjoyed the oyster selection (10 to choose from). I'm still dreaming of the Halibut crusted with Lardo. Delicious.
