Chez Julien

Brasserie in Le Marais, Ménilmontant & Belleville

A listed historical monument, this belle époque showpiece overlooking the Seine has one of Paris' most photographed façades. Its vine-draped terrace and gorgeous art-nouveau interior with painted-glass ceilings create an impossibly romantic backdrop for classical French cooking (scallop tartare; chateaubriand with béarnaise and frites).
