New restaurant-bar to take over former Brasserie V spot on Monroe Street

A new restaurant and bar from the owners of four other popular Madison-area establishments is planned for the former Brasserie V space at 1923 Monroe St., according to a report from the Wisconsin State Journal.

Tim Thompson and Stephani Dalbesio, who also own The Library Cafe and Bar, The Free House Pub in Middleton, The Flying Hound in Fitchburg, and The Bear & Bottle on Madison’s north side, are opening One and Only with two minority partners, Jameson Menz and Myla Dalbesio, Stephani’s sister.

Brasserie V closed in August when owners Matt and Andrea Van Nest decided to focus on Longtable Beer Cafe, their Middleton restaurant and bar.

One and Only is slated for an early summer 2023 opening once its owners get the financing to buy the building and obtain the necessary permits.
