A word from The Briks
The Briks was forged from Chef Mario’s multi-cultural identities and his life story; a mash-up of Chicano, North African, Spanish, and French technique. The Briks is a culmination of all my experiences and our ultimate goal is to trigger the one part of the brain that makes people happy!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 9/12/2014
    I stumbled across this place on OpenTable, read the reviews and thought I'd give it a try with my wife for our anniversary. The food was phenomenal (try any of the briks), our waiter was very friendly and very knowledgeable about the menu. Our entrees were delicious as well. The chicken was the juiciest I've ever had. Our reservation was at 7. It was quiet and not a lot of people were there when we arrived. As it got later and more people showed up and it became louder. It was hard for me and my wife to carry a conversation. Maybe we'll sit outside next time we come for dinner.

    I really enjoyed my first visit to The Briks. The menu is quite unusual, built around the filled and fried packets of delicious ingredients that give the restaurant its name, although there are lots of other choices as well. Everything was very tasty, and the chef and staff were extremely friendly and enthusiastic about their concept (but not intrusively so). The space is fun, too. I will definitely be back.

    I went there for lunch with a friend recently and was surprised to learn it had only opened a couple of weeks before. The food was very good, with the lunch menu boasting an interesting array of international foods. At the end of our meal, Chef Marco, who wanted to give us a taste of the dinner menu, sent us a sampler that included the moistest, tastiest chicken I've had in ages. I really look forward to returning for dinner and picking from a menu that it appears is even more eclectic than the lunch menu. Chef Marco even designed the very cool graphic tabletops. Clearly a talented (and generous) guy!

    Wow, Chef Mario is very gifted. I haven't had a meal this good in years. My friends agreed. So creative and delicious! Amazing place! I can't wait to go back and try the rest of the menu.

    I live across the street from BRIKs so my boyfriend and I decided to try it out. The food was unbelievable!!! We did not particularly love the ambience - too much techno music - would've loved to have heard some jazz or even reggae. ALL in all the food is incredible and the owner could not be more gracious. CHECK IT OUT!
