About

This restaurant is permanently closed. 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!

I had the cucumber heirl salad and lamb shank. It was very good, seasoned very nicely and the lamb was tender.

Interesting concept. However, the food was extremely salty.

I liked this place and would go back.Clean, modern, friendly. Good service. Didn't try the African turnovers -- forget what they called them -- but did try the "discada fries." Very good. Lots of interesting cocktails, although my date tasted one and sent it back, but I don't think that was the drink's fault.

We decided to meet friends here based on the rave reviews from another friend. We were not disappointed! The briks, the lamb, the Brussels sprouts and the bread pudding were all amazing!

We had dinner at The Briks the weekend before Valentine's Day. The restaurant was very roomy, with outdoor patio seating as well. We enjoyed the carnation and candle decorations on the tables- not sure if that was just for Valentine's Day, but it created a nice ambience. The customer service was excellent too. However, the food was certainly overpriced for the portions and just didn't blow us away. We tried the Tony Montana and Bougie briks. Both were just fine, but rather small and the flavor combination was a little odd. The menu looks very innovative and interesting, but it didn't work out for us when actually trying the food. Maybe we'll try again sometime in the future!

the evening at the briks was great, the server was very good at explaining the menu to my wife and I, we had the best hummus around with the pita bread and the lamb was fantastic, the entrée was enough for the two of us to enjoy, I recommend the lamb highly, tender and flavorful, an all around good night out.

Just really bad on so many levels. Cheap ingredients, horrible ambience and flavorless food. It was really a cut above dormitory food
