      The Brass Rail is an excellent, traditional style, down to earth gastro pub that is a creation of Chef Kent Monkan. The atmosphere is comfortable and the prices are reasonable, this place really is all about enjoying good food and enjoying yourself and the company of others. The focal point of the Brass Rail is the 1880s bar that was made for the Brass Rail restaurant in Midtown, New York City. The bar was dismantled during Prohibition and assembled for use in a New Jersey Tavern. This same bar is now the focal point of the Brass

      The food is pretty straight forward, simple and great tasting. I started out with the lobster bisque soup, which is my absolute favorite. It had a nice, rich color to it as well as a creamy texture. They also have a great French Onion soup that is topped with melted, gooey cheese. They also have some great tasting salads, such as the endive salad which contains candied walnuts, apple, roasted beets and is topped with a blackberry vinaigrette. The dressing is absolutely wonderful. The Steakhouse iceberg wedge salad is exactly as

      described, a wedge of iceberg lettuce, blue cheese, bacon, tomato and a red wine vinaigrette. The red wine vinaigrette is decent, but nothing tops the blackberry vinaigrette. The salads are incredibly affordable at $7. 

      The Brass Rail has a great selection of chilled seafoods, such as Blue Point Oysters for $12, and Little Neck Clams for $7. The oysters are large and taste fresh. As far as entrees go, I recommend the crab crusted Florida Grouper. This dish is served with sauteed artichokes, grape tomatoes, baby spinach and a citrus beurre blanc. The fish tasted incredibly fresh, as ...

      if it had just been caught earlier that day, and it was cooked to perfection. This dish was reasonably priced as well at $25. They also serve an excellent filet mignon that is so tender it literally melts in the mouth, served with creamed spinach, mushrooms and steak fries. Again, reasonably priced at $30. My boyfriend selected the Grilled Scottish Salmon which was served with a potato pancake, ratatouille and spicy mustard sauce. The salmon was cooked very well and the spicy mustard sauce had an excellent flavor to it, not too spicy with just the right
      amount of kick. This dish was $19. 

      In addition to great soups, salads, chilled seafoods, fish and steak dishes, the Brass Rail also has a sandwich menu, which is an interesting touch for this type of restaurant. The shrimp and oyster po boy with lettuce, tomato and spicy mayo on a baguette is served with shoe string french fries and cole slaw and it is wonderful. Honestly, one of the tastiest sandwiches I’ve had in quite some time. They also have a menu of small plated items such as tuna tartare, king crab salad and lobster gyros for $11 each.
