Anisette Brasserie (now closed)

Anisette brasserie is so lovely. The high ceilings and white glazed tiles make the room look so “clean”. The bar wall is massive, and I’d hate to be sitting there during a quake since the bottles are displayed all the way to the ceiling, secured only with a thin strip of metal. It looks impressive though, and that’s the point. Peter and I went with friends two weekends in a row. First with Jeffrey and Rina. Then again the next weekend with Paddy and Clara. Chef Alain Giraud came to our table a few times on our first visit. He was very gracious and made sure we were enjoying our meal. On our two visits, there were two repeat orders that we had to have both times. The Foie Gras and the Beef Cheeks. We’ll be back again soon.
