The Brasseries of Paris
Step through the doors of forty-nine of the most beautiful brasseries in Paris “where the pleasures of the eye are reunited with the pleasures of the table.”
The expansive, bustling brasseries of Paris have been a fixture of the city’s restaurant scene since the 19th century. Serving a classic “brasserie menu” (seafood platters, onion soup, sauerkraut and sausage, for starters), waiters in traditional long white aprons balance overflowing trays as weave their way through the huge dining rooms, decorated in a distinctive Art Nouveau or Art Deco style: stained glass windows, Mucha-inspired murals, glistening mirrors, and Japonica furniture. The authors explore the most beloved of these establishments, each with its own history, cachet, legends and ghosts. “Brasseries rustle with all that makes Parisian life Parisian,” they write, in this charming book that will guide travelers to unforgettable dining experience.
