The concept behind the Brenner Grill is what really makes it stand out in a city full of fantastic restaurants - you can sit in one of three parts of the restaurant - the steak grill, the pasta bar or the bar / cafe at the front, but order anything from either of them no matter where you sit. And all cooking happens on an open grill in the center of the premises, so you can see exactly how your meal is made. The menu range is relatively small but the food is all very good; be careful though, as getting a steak and a few side dishes (which are priced separately) can end up deceptively pricey. The restaurant is big, with an overall capacity of 300, making it a good choice for a group.
