Chez Françoise

French in St-Germain & Les Invalides

Buried beneath the enormous Air France building but opening to a retractable-roofed terrace, this old-school 1949-opened restaurant – a favourite with parliamentary workers from the Assemblée Nationale – recalls the early glamour of air travel when this former off-site terminal was established for transiting passengers. Specialities include entrecôte de bœuf, sublime oysters and themed musical evenings with matching gastronomic menus (without/with champagne €45/62).
