"I have had the pleasure of dining at Brasserie JO twice in the last few weeks and both times I was swept away into an oasis of gastronomic pleasure. Thank you for providing such a sensually satisfying experience. I truly appreciate your ability to orchestrate the perfect balance of ingredients to create heaven on Earth."
- Amy Wilhelm, Cranston, RI

Can it be 10 years since Brasserie JO opened? The city's first brasserie helped launch a tidal wave of casual French dining here in the Hub that continues to this day...Local diners owe a debt of gratitude to Jean Joho, the Alsatian-born, James Beard award-winning, Chicago chef who opened the original Brasserie JO in the Windy City in 1996 (Mat Schaffer, Boston Herald, May 2008)

If you can't make it to Paris, the next best thing is a visit to Brasserie JO, Boston first authentic and award winning brasserie. "French food, French ambience, French everything has returned to popularity with a vengeance. Brasserie Jo in the Colonnade Hotel sports a bar – noisy ... glittery with mirrors and brass - with just the right insouciant attitude. The seafood tower is delightful, the frites irresistible and the house beer as delicious as the gossip" (Alison Arnett, Boston Globe).
