My twin sister and I went to an old friend’s birthday dinner on Saturday night at En Japanese Brasserie. I’m glad the festivities took place there because I was reintroduced to the modern and airy Japanese resto. I hadn’t been there in over 2 years. The night was filled with great conversations, cool peeps, terrific food and wonderful service.

En Japanese Brasserie is more than meets the eye. When you take time to review the menu you see that this authentic Japanese eatery has a very broad appeal. If you’re vegan, a vegetarian, in the mood for sushi or even fried chicken- they have it covered! There wasn’t anything I tried that I didn’t like.

The elegant yet laid back resto delivers creative and tasty tapas-style Japanese dishes in a unique setting. The open kitchen adds a level of excitement to the main dining room, and if you want something a bit more intimate, they have tatami rooms that are tucked away in the back.

En will definitely be added to my Japanese resto rotation. And the next time I go I’ll try the tofu!

I’m sure that you’ve realized by now that The Lion is one of my favorite spots. So, I was really happy when they added brunch to their weekend rotation. Brunch at the Lion was just what I expected it to be- American-style fare with a twist. There was a good balance of sweet and savory dishes on the menu.

Check out my complete review of The Lion and Chef John DeLucie’s Sip, Chat Chow.
