Brasserie Jo

59 W. Hubbard


Every Tuesday from 5 to 7 PM, Brasserie Jo is dishing out free samples of tarte flambee, a thin, crispy, Alsatian-style pizza. You can try all five pies on the regular dinner menu, from the traditional--fromage blanc, onion, and bacon--to variations featuring escargot with leek and smoked salmon with capers. And on the first Tuesday of every month you can snack and knit at the same time, when the restaurant hosts a stitch 'n' bitch with free appetizers; the next one is March 6 at 6 PM.
