Brasserie 19

So got a chance to go to Brasserie 19.  Haven't been there since the HRW when they first opened.   On Thursday night, it's really a seen and be seen night, so the bar is really the scene to be.
Finding a table is not so bad, make sure you use the Open Table app on your phone to make a quick reservation, because the later it gets, the more crowded it gets.  On to the food!
Grilled Octopus for appetizer.  It's super yummy and the vegetable combo with the octopus is super harmonious.  The oil mixed with everything together, is super good, highly recommended.
I took advantage of the Specials for the night, it's Halibut with lumps of crab meat on top of a bed of veggie.  It's super fresh and the lumps of crab meat is really the star here.  I pretty much finished all of that, and the halibut wasn't bad, I was just filled up with crab meat.
For dessert, another special, it's chocolate crossant bread pudding with vanilla ice cream on top.  It's definitely a dense chocolate taste in there.  It was yummy and you cannot tell the bread pudding was made from a crossant.  That's pretty smart!

Of course, their neat thing is to have their wine list on an iPad.  They even have beer list selection available on it.  The rest, however, is still the good o' fashion way of taking your order and stuff.  

Tips for getting in, do make a reservation even if you think it's going to be slow.  The night I went there, there were 2 large parties and tons of people lingered after happy hour.  Not to mention the guys who are checking out girls and the girls who provided the scenery.  The place will be busy, make a reservation!
