What would Paris be without these turn-of-the-last-century brasseries and traditional cafes? I can answer that for you, it just wouldn't be Paris. With all the new and ever more fabulous, concept-driven restaurants that great capital food cities such as Paris see every year, even every month, it is good to go back to the roots sometimes and remember these traditional establishments. This classic offers a menu heavy on the seafood platters but with plenty that will satisfy a meat eater as well. Oysters and seafood platters play a big part in dining out here in Paris. Any time of year,but especially during the months ending in -er, is the time to order a platter of oysters, served on ice, with some country bread, a bit of salted butter and fresh lemon. Wash all this down with a crisp, dry white and you've got yourself Parisian heaven. Here you will be dining in old-world charm, just across from Paris's stock exchange building (used today for events like wine tastings). Finish off with a selection of cheeses or perfectly made profiteroles with hot, chocolate sauce poured at table.
