Time Out says
The team behind Abe & Arthur's turns to seasonal fare with this breakfast-to-dinner American bistro. Seven taps dispense local wines and Sixpoint beers at the glossy black-and-gold bar. Early risers can grab Stumptown coffee and breakfast plates, like eggs Benedict and buttermilk corn pancakes, while evening diners can choose from raw-bar platters, pastas and mains, including roasted chicken with okra stew and a marjoram jus, and steamed mussels and frites. The brass-accented room features a white marble floor, tufted light-brown banquettes and pendant lights.

I'm not vegan but I wanted to start off my new year with less red meat so I opted for the crispy vegan burger. Made of quoia-sweet potato blend, I actually really enjoyed it. Typically a veggie burger is kinda mushy and bland, but this had a great texture with a crispy layer, contrasting it with the fresh lettuce and tomato.
This is a great place for a business lunch as we were in and out in less than 45 min even as our reservation was right at noon.
We visited this restaurant on 31st October 2016 at around 7.30pm. 5 of us arrived without a reservation and were seated straight away our orders were taken by a friendly waiter but it was downhill from there once he finished his shift and a new waiter took over.
Be careful when ordering steak - we ordered medium and this came very well done.
We had to call the waiter over to order drinks when our drinks finished - he was very rude with his responses (at first we thought it might be part of a halloween act).
The waiter started removing plates and cleaning the table whilst the most of us were still eating.
Once we had finished we were not offered a desert menu, and when we asked for one the waiter walked off in a huff then threw 2 menus down on the table.
At that point we decided we were not welcome and asked for the bill. When one of our party asked if we could pay by card the waiter responded "No, unless you want to walk over to the machine". Which we would have been happy to do, but the attitude and tone of the waiter was awful.
All of us are from the UK and were quite shocked at this service as we were told that service is usually excellent in the USA, given the recommended suggestions for service charge/tips.
I didn't get the name of the waiter, but wish I did. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant if this is the normal service provided.
The food is excellent & the cocktails are outstanding. I went to Lexington Brass with a group of 5 people on a Wednesday night, and the atmosphere was lively, but not too loud for conversation. Don't let the 4 dollar sign rating intimidate you... there are options on the menu that won't leave you broke. Highly recommend the Soul Reviver (similar to a margarita but with fresh ginger and green tea), mac & cheese, steak frites, and the smores dessert. Would definitely go back with girlfriends or colleagues.
