Brasserie Lipp

Brasserie in St-Germain & Les Invalides

Waiters in black waistcoats, bow ties and long white aprons serve brasserie favourites like choucroute garnie (dressed sauerkraut) and jarret de porc aux lentilles (pork knuckle with lentils) at this illustrious wood-panelled establishment. (Arrive hungry: salads aren’t allowed as meals.) Opened by Léonard Lipp in 1880, the brasserie achieved immortality when Hemingway sang its praises in A Moveable Feast.
