This brasserie has been a fixture on the Paris landscape since 1923. It is now helmed by Chef Sylvestre Wahid (two Michelin stars). The decor is still reminiscent of its glorious Belle Epoque past, though with stylish updates. These include large mirrors and long, red banquet seating. The cuisine is also a stylish update of French traditional fare. Expect seared tuna steak served with Meditteranean-inspired condiments - olive oil even features in some desserts - or choose from the daily specials, meat or fish main. Chef Wahid has emerged as one of the forefront talents on the Parisian culinary scene. So dining here gives you a taste of the promise of an authentic traditional French cuisine with flavorful, refreshing updates. The location is impeccable. The rue St. Dominique is the road to the Eiffel Tower and very popular for shopping, strolling and simply absorbing a delightful, tony, upscale Parisian neighborhood.
- French Traditional: "Even if you don't have time for a long gastronomic meal this time, ask to have a peek into the restaurant upstairs (2 Michelin stars) so you know what to look forward to next time. Since the kitchens are all the domain of Chef Sylvestre Wahid, you're certain to be pleased by any meal prepared and overseen here by the notable chef. Open Sundays for brunch, too."
- Best for French Traditional Because: This is French cuisine with a light touch. Think peach sorbet infused with verveine, salmon delicately poached with rhubarb reduction accents...
