The team behind Brasserie 19 has ushered in a swanky Rice Village bistro with whimsical furniture, a covered patio, and an expansive marble-topped oyster bar. Start with grilled lamb meatballs in a lush tzatziki or the Gratify Board, a gorgeous mix of charcuterie and cheese. Other (pricey!) appetizers are on the small side, such as the beef carpaccio graced with thinly sliced tempura mushrooms. Pan-seared Ora King salmon was a beauty alongside grilled root vegetables. The towering Gratify Burger will indeed gratify— even more so with some bubbly wine served in a pretty coupe glass.
