At Léon the focus is on one thing and one thing only: moules (mussels). Meal-size bowls of the meaty bivalves, served with chips and bread, start at about €10.50 and are exceptionally good value, especially at lunch. On Sundays eat as much as you like for €15.90. There are nine Léons in central Paris, including the Les Halles branch.
The name of this stylish restaurant, with its soft lighting, burgundy chairs and banquettes and Art Deco touches, means ‘barleycorn’ – it alludes to the great breweries of Flanders (check out the list of beers on offer). The signature dish is potjevleesch (€12), four kinds of meat cooked slowly together and served in aspic, though you’ll find plenty of other dishes that hint at the Low Countries, including waterzooi de homard (lobster poached with shredded vegetables and served in a creamy broth) and bintje farcie de morue en brandade (potatoes stuffed with cod purée).
