Gaslight, Brasserie du Coin is a wonderful reproduction of a classic neighborhood Parisian brasserie. A hand crafted Parisian zinc bar, reclaimed wood floors, mosaic tiles, beamed wood ceilings and antique mirrors create a warm and comfortable setting. Guests can dine at the bar, at cafe tables, at communal tables and in booths and banquettes. When the weather cooperates, there is a delightful outdoor patio.
The menu offers classic brasserie fare; bacon and onion tart, escargot, French onion soup, moules frites, steak frites, Boeuf Bourguignon and more and all are quite good. Wonderful roast chicken with garlic fries, mustard crusted salmon was wonderful and I love the daily specials like Tuesday’s Pork Schnitzel, Alsatian potatoes, spring onions & Meyer lemon
The all French wine list has over 20 wines by the glass, ½ carafe and carafe with additional 60 selections on the reserve wine list. All reasonably priced.
Open daily for brunch and dinner and for a Saturday/Sunday prix fixe brunch which is an incredible value at $11.95.
WHAT OTHERS SAY…
“Consistently good fare including a terrific weekend brunch attracts Francophiles to this chic, bohemian South End French staple (and Aquitaine sibling) in a subway tile-lined setting evoking an old-world brasserie; despite being always hopping with a fun buzz, it feels well managed thanks to solid service, with relatively reasonable prices plus quiet courtyard dining and free parking adding to the joie de vivre.” ZAGAT
