Ballroom Brasserie

Now, what exactly does "Brasserie" mean?

Picture it: Atop huge disk Rhoomba-like robots specially configured for the purpose, diners and furniture glide elegantly about the restaurant floor, participating in an elegant ballroom dance. Skilled waiters hop aboard the slowly whirling disks bringing food, and the patrons are given a constant change of scenery.

Not quite the same idea or intent. [phoenix, Oct 04 2004, last modified Oct 05 2004]

       Alas, a brasserie is not quite the class of restaurant I am referring to, but oh well.

       I had to ask myself the secondary title question just now. I don't remember writing that...   

       In France, a brasserie is a café doubling as a restaurant with a relaxed setting, which serves single dishes and other meals. It can be expected to have professional service and printed menus (unlike a bistro which may have neither), but more informal eating hours than a full-fledged restaurant. Typically, a brasserie is open every day of the week and the same menu is served all day. (OK I guess I just used it for alliteration). The word 'brasserie' is also French for brewery and, by extension, "the brewing business".

       I think it is also redneck for "Fancy Bra".
