Brasserie 33 is a somewhat newer establishment on Ellsworth Ave in Shadyside. Thanks to a Groupon, we visited recently and had some mixed reviews. The atmosphere is lacking air conditioning, so be cautious about overly hot days when you’d want to enjoy a cool dinner. There is outside seating for warm days and likely provides a nice casual dinner experience. Our visit was during one of the latest heat waves, so we decided to dine indoors.
TasteBudA never turns down a chance for mussels, so it was clear that was on his menu. I decided to have the Frise Salad. We’ll let the pictures do the talking. Overall, it wasn’t a bad meal, but as a new establishment, I’d give them some time to work out some kinks.
