Haussmann Brasserie
We all love to talk about jinxed addresses—you know, those places where restaurants come and go like Woody Allen films. What about charmed addresses, like 305 South Happ Road in Northfield, which has been blessed with standouts such as Brasserie T, MK North, and now Jacky Pluton’s ambitious American brasserie, Haussmann? “From the location point of view, it’s one of the best spaces in the North Shore,” says Pluton. “But no one took advantage of it before.” He intends to do just that, hedging his bets by bringing in Thomas Rice, a veteran of Jean-Georges, to helm an accessible menu that includes meals as simple as the Pulp Fiction-inspired “royale with cheese” ($12.50). 305 S. Happ Rd., Northfield; 847-446-1133. –Jeff Ruby
