Brasserie Tatin reminds you more of a contemporary French restaurant located in Manhattan, than a old bistro located in Paris. However, the food is spot on French. Unlike Petit Louis, located less than a mile away, Brasserie Tatin is authentically French but with a dash of creativity. It is located in the Broadview apartment building near Johns Hopkins and pulls a clientele of JHU teachers and staff as well as Roland Park/Guilford/Canterbury residents, both groups of which love (and can) spend. However, you do not have to spend, as the menu can support a $30 meal, but can be stretched into a soup-salad-entree-dessert four course meal. The orange-blue decor seperates it from most French restaurants who try to be French but lose an individual spirit, which is the hallmark of a Parisian restaurant.
Tarte Tatin ($7.50) is the signature dessert of the restaurant, as well as what it is named after. The Tarte Tatin is a caramelized apple tart served with one scoop of cream and another scoop of vanilla ice cream (behind apple shaped cracker).
