I recently moved to SF and have yet to find a loud, crazy, and vibrant brasserie. I'm looking for something like Bistrot du Coin (http://www.bistrotducoin.com/), in case any of you have been to DC. I know their food wasn't amazing, but it was solidly good and very authentic.
Are their any brasseries like this? I've been to Gamine, but it's quite small, and the menu isn't necessarily traditional. Absinthe was great, but too elegant for what I'm looking for.
