City Pulse

By Matt Dorville

While many restaurants on the Upper East Side try to replicate an authentic French bistro, the low lighting and fanciful ceiling drapery of Brasserie Julien create quite a good Parisian mise en scene. A lot of feeling has gone into this restaurant and it’s hard not to get caught up in the romanticism, with its high ceilings and gorgeous woodwork.

Recently the restaurant began a “kids eat free” policy before 7:00pm from Monday to Thursday and with its close location to the Met, it’s proving to be a great outing for the entire family. The menu is quite comprehensive, offering such traditional French favorites as escargots, foie gras, duck a l’orange and beef tartare, but the selection leans heavily on meat dishes; so vegetarians be warned.

Parents could easily enjoy the beauty of a fancy night out without being weighed down by the cost of kid’s menu (not to mention the cost of the babysitter). Also Brasserie Julien still has very affordable choices, such as a three-course prix fixe menu for 25 dollars on Monday through Thursday. In this recession period, it’s nice to know that romantic night outs are still possible…even when you bring the kids.
