We were most thankful to be seated 2 minutes before closing. Eric greeted us warmly- and to accommodate our limited French language skills- took the handwritten menu in hand and explained each dish still available. We started with the charcuterie. Great selection of meats served...More

Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle
époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades,
and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here,
modern day workers continue to take advantage of the
legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th
century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and
cinemas sit side by side with French bistros
predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in
