Some would argue that the term “fine dining” only applies to restaurants with waiters wearing tuxedos and tables clad in white linen.

Brazen is the perfect place to tuck in to a plate of traditional Midwest cuisine or broaden your horizons with thoughtfully crafted unique plates. Located in the Historic Millwork District, in the past year Brazen has added casual seating on the front veranda and lovely outdoor tables in the courtyard of the building.

Soft lights, planters filled with greenery, and the natural brick walls of the surrounding buildings create a memorable atmosphere for dining outdoors.
