French expat Philippe Duranton's brasserie offers hearty French rustic cuisine—onion soup with toasted gratin topping, bouillabaisse, snails, pork medallions in mustard sauce, and so on. (Ignore the club sandwiches and standard snack menus, which are overpriced and tasteless.) The restaurant has a prime position on the Marrakesh Plaza in Guéliz, with acres of outdoor seating. Indoors you could imagine yourself in an early-20th-century Paris bistro with padded leather
booths, crystal chandeliers, ceiling fans, and art nouveau mirrors painted with Grecian nymphs. Alcohol and cocktails are served in the restaurant, but not on the terrace.
