Brasserie Jo in Chicago, Illinois, United States | Restaurant
Chicago's only authentic French brasserie and winner of the 1996 James Beard Award for "Best New Restaurant in the U.S.," Brasserie Jo is a lively and flavorful tribute to the food and drink of Chef Joho‚??s native France, with an Alsace flair that matches the ebullient Joho himself.
As with British pubs or American diners, brasseries are emblematic social meeting and eating places of France. Offering robust cuisine, handcrafted beers and affordable wines in a vibrant atmosphere, brasseries are the social hubs of their neighborhoods.
"The joy and comfort of being in a brasserie comes from the customers," says Joho. "We encourage large groups of people to gather, enjoy each other‚??s company and relax over food and drink."
