The Brasserie

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Restaurant club again!  This month we ended up at The Brasserie in George Town.

Since moving here more 4 years ago, we’ve noticed that the restaurants in central George Town have a bit of a tough time.  Head downtown after 7pm and you’ll be hard pressed to find much action.  The Brasserie, however, was heaving this Thursday night.  Our table of 12 may have helped 🙂

The restaurant ‘blends a modern approach to cooking with traditional ideas and pristine ingredients harvested straight from the island’s finest artisans.’ We were pleasantly surprised by this outstanding amuse bouche: wahoo sashimi.  Rachel and Clark Kent even liked it and they are most definitely not ‘raw fish’ fans.

Almost everyone at the table ordered a starter (I mean, it IS restaurant club!)  Clockwise from the left: Cobb Salad with crumbled blue cheese and haas avocado, margharita style flatbread, tuna tartar with pickled diakon and island crisps and chick pea hummus.  I had the tuna…melt in your mouth!  Rachel was a little overwhelmed by her starter.  It looked more like a personal sized pizza.  Proly better for two rather than one.

Everyone was pretty impressed with their main courses as well with the exception of the two open faced kobe burger eaters. The beef was a touch overdone and that can be pretty disappointing when it comes to kobe.  I had the MASSIVE 16 oz natural certified angus beef cowboy steak with crispy cassava, chimichuri and garden greens.  16 oz.  Holy cow! CK had the seafood pasta and Rach had the catch of the day.
I was the only one to have dessert.  For the blog of course.  I was super excited to see naseberry ice cream on the menu.  I was also one of the few people who liked it but then CK and I were the only ones who had had naseberry before.  Its got a very distinct texture, kind of like a pear and if you’re not ready for it it might catch you off guard.  I loved it though.

  1. Naseberry ice cream….interesting – I have to try that one. Naseberry aka sapodilla is sweet, almost tasting like brown sugar and it's texture is a cross between grainy and custard-like.

  2. P.S., don't ask why but everytime I write your name I get the giggles. I need in on your club, everything looks so good, and I don't think it odd at all that Clark is tht only male at the table, I'm sure he was loving it.

  18. I love your restaurant club… that is awesome!

    I want to try the naseberry ice cream because I don't know what naseberry is! 🙂

  19. One of these days I'm going to visit your little island and I'm SO going to know where to go! I truly enjoy your food club posts!!

  20. This is my first time here and I enjoy reading your website. What a fabulous feast! And the Tuna Tatar looks delicious! It's nice to meet you, and thank you for finding me first! 🙂

  21. Hard to believe that out of 12…no one else other than yourself felt compelled to have dessert…what's wrong with this group?!?
    I guess after having eaten all this amazing spread…I could probably understand ;o)

    Glad you're having such nice outings.
    Ciao for now,
    Claudia

  22. Looks like a fun evening with friends! A restaurant club is a great idea.

  23. These dinner sounds like such fun and always such incredible food! What a wonderful meal. I've never had naseberry…I'm intrigued.

  24. Sorry about the Kobe-that is a disappointment but it seems that overall the food was good. In addition I am sure that the company was too. Nothing like eating good in the neighborhood! Glad you enjoyed yourself

  25. sounds fabulous – I love the idea of a restuarant club. I've never heard of naseberry – sounds interesting though. Lovely pictures

  26. I've never heard of Naseberry ice cream! Everything in the restaurant looks amazing.

  27. Overcooking kobe out of all dishes. They are lucky the food inspectors did not suspend their license:)

  28. I never even noticed that Clark Kent is the odd one out! LOL! 🙂
    Everything looks wonderful. Naseberry fruits (I googled for it!) looks like one of our local fruits, “Ciku”, which is extremely sweet, I wonder if they are the same. At a glance I thought it was one of those shell snails! When I read that it is actually ice cream, then I saw the creaminess of it! LOL! Would love to try it!

  29. Yeah, dessert for the blog….suuure 🙂 @ Clark, hello, luckiest dude in George Town!

  30. Love reading your restaurant and wish i wat there; it all looks so good. Clark it is a real good sport.

  31. I've never even heard of a naseberry. Neat. That catch of the day looks amazing. Fishing is huge here on the Gulf Coast, but in this dinky city I find myself in, most of the restaurants serve it a) fried or b) smothered in cream sauce. Yuck. I would INHALE that catch of the day your friend had!

  32. This sounds like a lovely place to dine…just my type. And the food looks so good. Fresh harvested ingredients is something I so miss from living Puerto Rico. A bit harder now that I live in NC. Just a funny question I always ask bloggers when they post about restaurants: do people give you funny looks when you take photos of their food? 🙂

  33. Sashimi mmmmmm 🙂

  34. If anyone was wondering, yes, it was a bit strange being the only male person at this table.
