Brasserie

In France and the Francophone world, a brasserie is a type of French restaurant with a relaxed setting, which serves single dishes and other meals.

The word brasserie is also French for “brewery” and, by extension, “the brewing business”. A brasserie can be expected to have professional service, printed menus, and, traditionally, white linen — unlike a bistro which may have none of these. Typically, a brasserie is open every day of the week and serves the same menu all day.

Northeast France and the United Kingdom

In Northern France, particularly towards the Belgian border (an area traditionally redolent of brewing French style beers), there has been a welcome revival of old breweries which have been converted into restaurants and hotels, reverting to brewing their own beer as micro-brews. The term is often used in the United Kingdom applied to small metropolitan restaurants, usually in city centres, however it generally has no connection with brewing.
