Hours: Lunch & Dinner (Daily). Sun. Brunch.
39 Rue de Jean looks like it’s been at 39 John St. forever and in Upper King’s recent restaurant history, it has. For almost two decades the brasserie has kept regulars returning thanks to French classics and then some, like the nicoise salad, brimming with tuna, green beans, eggs, and a toothsome vinaigrette, or the big plates, like the braised short ribs (with butter!), the burger (one of the best in town maybe?), and the six preparations of mussels. A bowl for $11.99 with a side of frites and a glass of prosecco will do you up right. If all this have you dreaming of Paris, head down John Street. —Kinsey Gidick (Dish, Winter 2019)
