No,that’s not Flaubert or Balzac walking through the door, but should they miraculously return, the decor of old Paris, with the original gas lamps adn time-mellowed paneling, will make them feel at home.

The place openend in 1865 as the restaurant associated with the very large and then-solvent Café Riche next door. After Café Riche  burned down, the restaurant continued to attract lawyers, set designers and machinist from the nearby Opéra Garnier, eventually becoming a well-known restaurant. 

Expect a impressive choice of Loire Valley wines and food that combines. The house is famous for its Gillardeau oysters. Expect classic French cuisine.
