With its crisp white interior and gorgeous table-hopping crowd, Brasserie 19 is easily the most see and be seen restaurant in town. The high-octane ambience is fueled by one of the city’s best wine lists – an unconventional approach to pricing that has every table topped with a bottle. Where Rose’s are d’ rigeur during the hot summer months and serious reds are quaffed by the River Oaks crowd that likes classic brasserie style French food. Plateaux de Fruits de Mer, Frisee Salad topped poached egg and lardon, Steak Frites and the sautéed Dover Sole in a beurre noisette remain the perennial favorites.

Shawn Virene

General Manager

Armed with his motto that “communication is the most important key to success in the restaurant business,” Shawn Virene walks the talk as the consummate communicator and managing partner of Brasserie 19. Starting his career as a bus boy 26 years ago, and then moving up through the ranks as a waiter, cook and general manager, Virene has learned firsthand the elements that create a positive dining experience. And while he can still bus tables and serve patrons with the best of the best, Virene is widely known for his respected and intuitive sense for wine pairings.

An unquenchable thirst for knowledge on all things related to wine positioned Virene as the go-to guy to run Ibiza’s wine program —a massive 4,000-bottle, ever-changing collection — after amassing a loyal following as a waiter at Ibiza and previously at Carrabba’s Italian Grill and Ruggles Grill. Virene’s passion is the discovery of a great bottle of wine for an even better price to share with his customers – “a $40 bottle that drinks like a $400 bottle” – and he is thrilled to find a hidden gem to add to Ibiza’s well-populated wine list.

Virene has now taken his experience and expertise to Clark Cooper Concepts’ newest address, Brasserie 19, where he shares Charles Clark and Grant Cooper’s unwavering commitment to world-class food, pristine service and a sophisticated yet inviting neighborhood atmosphere.
