My review of Brasserie by Niche is now available online. Brasserie by Niche is located at 4580 Laclede Avenue in the Central West End. You can view the menu and more info at its website.

In this week's Back of the House slideshow, Jennifer Silverberg shows off the sprucing up of the former Chez Leon space as well as the French fare from Gerard Craft and executive chef Perry Hendrix.

More photos from inside Brasserie by Niche are after the jump.

The onion soup, another one of the hors d'oeuvres, is made with chicken stock, and is topped with a "thick blanket of melted Gruyère spilling over the edges of its crock." It is seen here with a Saison Dupont beer. See full slideshow here. - PHOTO: JENNIFER SILVERBERG
