Dijon’s Brasserie B9

Brasserie B9, 9 Place de la Liberation, Dijon

Rod had read about this brasserie with the interesting name so we decided to try it one frosty December evening. It has a good location on the huge square, at that time overlooking the winter ice-rink, but in summer the small fountains come on and kids have great fun running through them. The guy who runs it was very pleasant and the prices reasonable.

The décor is unfussy and modern, with a fascinating “chandelier” made of knives, forks and spoons! Most unusual.

A very creative chandelier

The snack that came with our kir aperitif was flaky cheese sticks with poppy seeds. Very nice.rod

With dinner we had a bottle of white Bourgogne Vezelay (€25), which was wonderful. Rod ordered a grillade plancha (€15), a small piece of steak on a plank with vegs and potatoes, which he said was good. But I was not happy with my beef bourguignon (€16)—it was over-cooked and dry and served with cold noodles. Perhaps that’s the style here, but I’ve had better elsewhere.

Total with coffees and kirs was €72.00.

But, the atmosphere and location are good, so we’d be willing to try again and sample something else on the menu.
