Fodor's Expert Review Café de Paris
The landmark Belle Époque "Brasserie 1900"—better known as Café de Paris—offers the usual classics (shellfish, steak tartare, matchstick frites, and fish boned tableside). Supercilious, superpro waiters fawn gracefully over titled preeners, jet-setters, and tourists alike. Open daily at 8 am, there's good hot food until 2 am. To claim "I've been there," grab a chair outside in Place du Casino, order a €7.50 coke or a €15 sundae, and sit back to watch the show.
