City Guide: Paris
La Brasserie des Halles
A brasserie that serves a menu out of your long-lost French grandmother's kitchen.
An unpretentious French brasserie filled with locals, who soak up the creamy juices from their veal cutlet à la Normandie, savor flaky braised cod with seasonal vegetables, and munch on thick cut French fries. Desserts are homemade, too. Jazz performances in the evening draw a crowd and are commemorated in black-and-white photos that hang at jaunty angles above the booths. Nothing contemporary about it, and sauces that stick to the ribs, but the kind of comfort food and atmosphere that brings you back again and again. This is the perfect kind of restaurant-wine bar that is pure and authentic.
