My better half and I stumbled across Brasserie Central a couple of years ago while shopping at Merrick Park and we had a wonderful experience. Since then we have made the pilgrimage from our place downtown at least once a month for lunch or dinner.

True to brasserie style, BC is beautiful without being pretentious. No one here takes themselves too seriously and it’s far from stuffy. Inside it’s almost always a lively scene (I’ve yet to see this place even half-empty), with lots of locals as well as tourists parked at the bar while they nosh on trays of seafood and wade through a couple glasses of wine. A few high top tables close to the entrance provides some nice casual seating, while a large patio and decent number of tables inside round out the dining room.

I feel like their menu is what you’d expect to see from a place that calls itself a brasserie: vichyssoise, salad nicoise, and a mean coq au vin; together with lots of seafood and meat options. (Note: their pommes frites are addictive.) They also have a great wine list with lots of choices that don’t require heavy pockets, which I truly appreciate.

Service staff in starched white shirts and black pants float around taking orders while a busy bar staff try to keep up with the coffee and wine orders. It’s a friendly vibe and the food is consistent. Absolutely worth a visit if you’re in the area.

C’es Magnifique!

Had a very nice lunch and sat outside in the courtyard. The Bibb lettuce salad was excellent. My husband had chicken which was very good and I had moulles frites also good. Loved the French fries. Service was friendly and professional. Would recommend.

Used to come to this place and get the big assorted platter as in the picture. Service is usually good but when complained about the platter the server made all type of excuses as why the 1 pound lobster is the smaller than the big shrimp because it wasn’t season or why it only had one crab claw instead of 2 and why there wasn’t other things. When I told him to bring the menu, he brought the maitre’d brought over the missing stone crab claw and an additional small ones. We accepted the gesture but now that I check the bill two sides that never arrived were charged. Don’t know if I would go back although I loved this this place.
