Brisa Bistro

This huge multilevel restaurant looks more like a corporate convention's dining facility than a bistro. But when the upper tier is filled with packed buffet tables on Sunday, the lack of intimacy pales in comparison to the phenomenal deal: The $29.95 all-you-can-eat brunch for two even includes all-you-can-drink bubbly. At nonbrunch times, it's best to stick to simple preparations, but some of these are superior, such as lunch's moist (and gigantic) Super Grouper sandwich or, for dinner, a plentiful Spanish antipasto platter that shines with high-quality raw ingredients.
