What does "brasserie" mean in the Bay Area?

My notion of what a brasserie is comes from Paris, and we have nothing very much like one of those here. What do people here mean when they use the word?

Michael Bauer calls Box and Bells "a new-age American brasserie" in his review and I have no idea why he chose that word. He seems to use it interchangeably with "bistro."
