Brasserie Jo

Brasserie Jo restaurant is a authentic French brasserie near Merchandise Mart in Chicago. We were 30 minutes earlier then our original reservation but were seated with a smile with no questions, place was full but they honored our reservations. The food was really well prepared and atmosphere with dark wood and white linens made it seem special. Wait staff was knowledgeable and friendly. We ordered Charcuterie, Pate and Cheese Assiette for Hors D'oeuvres, the wooden plank was filled with cold cuts, cheese and 2 different kind of pate... this was meal in itself. We broke the bread and ate with our goodies... yum.....
Main course, we had steamed mussels for $19.95 filled with garlic and lemon flavor that was great, Sauteed skate wing with mashed potate for $21.95 tender fish, Quiche Lorraine $13.95. I have never seen such huge Quiche, great flavor, and Red wine Chicken Coq au Vin for $22.95, Chicken was so tender that it just fell apart, and gravey was just devine.
Dessert was of course Chocolate mouse, which arrived in a huge serving bowl that we just could not stop giggling. The server scooped out two huge spoonful on a plate, dusted with chocolate powder and white chocolate sause to the side... It was so light and delightful.

They do have extensive wine and beer collections and if you like to drink with dinner selections are plenty.

Great place before theater or would like a casual french dinner this is a place to go......
