Restaurateurs Vittorio Assaf and Fabio Granato opened Brasserie Cognac de Monsieur Ballon in April 2008. The duo brought their love for French culture and cuisine to New York City and gave the Big Apple an authentic slice of such, with a brasserie style menu combining French classics with modern creations. Situated on a quaint corner on the Upper East Side with a delightful outdoor café, this neighborhood restaurant provides fantastic alfresco dining in the warmer seasons. Brasserie Cognac’s two-story space is as inviting as it is charming, not to mention elegant and sophisticated. The popular vibrantly purple upstairs dining room with vintage chandeliers and street views, is booked frequently for private events and intimate dinners.

We are fortunate that Brasserie Cognac has generously offered us access to the full menu for Thanksgiving. Unfortunately, we can only choose one item from each section!
