The Brass Elephant is no more. I didn't even know about this until I read a Tweet from the City Paper yesterday. Had I known that Restaurant Week would be the last time it was open, I would have stopped by one final time, not only visiting it one final time but also keeping intact my streak of restaurants closed after visiting them during summer Restaurant Week. My sister and I stopped in for dessert once. We got some crème brûlée in their gorgeous lounge upstairs. It was a nice way to finish off an evening. The Brass Elephant was a lovely restaurant, but I guess lovely doesn't always cut it in a recession. Damn shame.
