Fodor's Expert Review Brasserie Thoumieux

$$$$ Invalides French

When this old-world bistro was revived, much of its vintage character was thankfully preserved. Despite its location in the sedate 7e arrondissement, it has quickly became a place to be seen eating tasty versions of classic brasserie dishes a notch above the usual quality (albiet pricier). A juicy Angus beef hamburger comes with a superfluous shower of Parmesan and ultraskinny fries, while the more sophisticated slow-cooked salmon is accompanied by vegetables from star market gardener Joël Thiébault. For dessert, try the piping-hot churros with chocolate sauce. Michelin-starred chef Sylvestre Wahid's eponymous restaurant gastronomique upstairs is ever so chic, and offers an experience commensurate with the top bistros in town (there's a €175 set menu at lunch and dinner and a €80 three-course menu at lunch). Reservations are taken exactly six days ahead.
