Meat doesn't always need to be a 500gram slab of beef to be good, as Brasserie Quartier clearly demonstrates.

Lavish and sophisticated, the restaurant’s interior design is done in an elegant regency style. Fresh flowers, shades of soft pastel, emerald velvet tufted banquettes set amidst dainty chairs and tables and a mosaic marble floor aptly evokes a scene out of a period film set in a European aristocratic residence.
