A typical French brasserie with every French dish you would expect. However, I prefer ordering off the specials of the day, which is a habit you should get used to in France.
Get your meat on. The two main dishes enjoyed here are the mixed meat platters (below) and the mussels with fries. If you are with a friend, get one of each and share. Super fresh, super simple, super French.
Perhaps the most decadent meal I had in France, and definitely not one to miss. This place is known for its frois gras, which has been banned in some US states for ‘inhumane’ practices. However, I still think it is quite possibly the most delicious thing on the planet, and perhaps the only reason why it has been banned is because some Americans may just not be able to fully appreciate it. Here you can have frois gras any way, including to go, but for my lunch I preferred it in a ravioli. Pair it with a cheese selection and escargot and you have the most traditional French meal imaginable.
Known for having the best hot chocolate on the planet, and they’re right, it may be the best thing you have ever tasted in your life. If you’re trying to save a few bucks, like every backpacker should, grab a cocoa and a pastry to go and enjoy them at the lovely park across the street (the one with the permanent carnival). If you happen to be splurging, you can enjoy a variety of their desserts in their lovely French dining room.
Get in line and wait. Wait a little longer. Maybe just 5 more minutes. And then buy as many macaroons as you can afford. And don’t share.
