Situated on a quaint corner, Brasserie Cognac East’s two-story space is as inviting and charming, as it is elegant and sophisticated. Due to the overwhelming popularity of the first Brasserie Cognac located in the Theater District, Restaurateurs Vittorio Assaf and Fabio Granato teamed up to open this Upper Eastside location.
Serving French cuisine with a modern twist, guests can enjoy brunch, lunch, high tea, dinner or a special Cognac pairing.
The main level is divided by a central winding stair case that leads to the upstairs dining room with vibrant purple walls, vintage chandeliers and windows with street views. Neutral gray walls, burgundy banquettes and vintage mirrors create a relaxed, upscale brasserie feel, enhanced by a long brass bar, perfect for sipping wines and aperitifs. Two working fireplaces, one on each level, create a cozy feel. A delightful outdoor café provides fantastic alfresco dining which welcomes the locals, business professionals and families who frequent Brasserie Cognac East.
