Originally a bouillon—one of the Parisian soup restaurants popular at the turn of the 20th century—this two-story restaurant is now a lushly renovated Belle Époque haven with a casual setting downstairs and a lavish room upstairs. The menu changes seasonally: lamb knuckle with licorice, wild boar parmentier (like a shepherd's pie, with mashed potatoes on top and meat underneath), and roast suckling pig are warming winter dishes. For dessert, dig into
crème brûlée with maple syrup or the café liégois (coffee-flavored custard topped with whipped cream), which comes in a jug. If you're on a budget, try the set menus ranging from €30.90 to €41.90. This is a good place to keep in mind for a late lunch or an early dinner, since it serves nonstop from noon until 11 pm. You can also drop in for a Belgian waffle and hot chocolate in the afternoon.
