Founded in 1864, Bofinger is reputedly Paris' oldest brasserie, though its polished art nouveau brass, glass and mirrors indicates redecoration a few decades later. Specialities include Alsatian-inspired dishes like choucroute (sauerkraut), oysters (from €27.90 for a dozen) and magnificent seafood platters (€29.90 to €122). Ask for a seat downstairs beneath the coupole (stained-glass dome). Kids are catered for with a €14.50 children's menu.
