Chef Jean Joho is best known for the jacket-required dining style of Everest, but this brasserie is casual both in design and spirit. The menu of simple Alsatian food matches: The classic salad lyonnaise, rife with chewy lardons, is a solid starter, but it can’t compete with the crispy, onion-filled tarte flambé. The chicken in the creamy riesling coq au vin arrives with a delectable pile of doughy, salty kneffla. Somebody get the chef a cocktail—he should relax like this more often.
