This summer seemed like the perfect time for Will and I to take advantage of NYC Restaurant Week because I've officially finished college and my degree, so it was the perfect time to celebrate my accomplishment. The restaurant I initially chose was Delmonico's, but later changed my mind to Brasserie Seoul (a new, hip, and trendy restaurant with Korean and French flavors and techniques) in Downtown Brooklyn. The restaurant is tucked away inside the new Holiday Inn. I've visited the hotel twice during my summer classes. My class and I met the General Manage who said next time we return we would receive 10% off our bill since we were City Tech students.
Will and I were seated in the center of the restaurant and had a good view of the kitchen (it's semi-open). The servers/staff were nice, friendly, and took initiative when an issue rose. We asked for a sparkling water, but unfortunately the rim around my glass cup had a fuzz around it. The General Manager was behind me and asked if everything was okay, but I showed him my glass, he kindly apologized and replaced it with a new and clean glass.

Overall the experience was pleasant. Service was top notch and food was definitely unique. Brasserie Seoul isn't your typical Korean restaurant you would find in Queens or Manhattan, but this is definitely a gem and a great addition to Downtown Brooklyn. I think the combination of their service, food, and ambiance adds a different concept to the neighborhood. The price is on par with the price at most restaurants within the neighborhood. I would definitely be back if I want to have Korean food or maybe for a special celebration.
I am definitely looking forward to our NYC Restaurant Week experience.
