Brasserie Georges

Brasserie Georges Review

This inexpensive brasserie at the south end of Rue de la Charité next to the Perrache train station is one of the city's largest and oldest, founded in 1836 but now housed in a palatial 1925 Art Deco building. Meals range from hearty veal stew or sauerkraut and sausage to more refined fare. Cooking is less than creative—stick with the great standards, such as saucisson brioché (sausage in brioche stuffed with truffled foie gras)—and, like the vast room setting, service is a bit impersonal. Nevertheless, the deco style is as delicious as it comes.
