La Coupole, a brasserie in Paris

Paris brasseries have large and beautiful dining rooms, atmosphere, shellfish, sauerkraut, beer and Alsatian wine. The brasseries are affordable and quite popular with locals. Somehow neglected by foodies, they are at the heart of the Parisian way of life. These four brasseries are open 7 days a week, including Christmas day and New Year's day. Restaurants in Paris.

Eat out in a Paris Brasserie

We recommend a meal in a Paris brasserie, a 100 year culinary tradition imported from Alsace, a French region on the German border. You will eat well at a reasonable price anytime from 12am to 12pm, seven days a week including Christmas day and New Year's day in most cases. As most restaurants in town are closed on Christmas day and New Year's day, the brasseries are appropriate options.

Many Paris brasseries boast a beautiful Art Nouveau or Art Deco decor. Eat oysters, shellfish, sauerkraut with sausages. Drink Riesling wine from Alsace or beer. Here's our selection of the five best brasseries in town.

La Strasbourgeoise

Our favorite brasserie in town. Near Gare de l'Est (train station to Germany and Alsace), this brasserie is the ultimate Parisian experience: calm, good food, good service and this subtle tradition we love. Totally out of the beaten track. Paris map. Tel : 33 (0)1 42 05 20 02. Open 7 days a week, including Christmas day and New Year's day. 12pm to 12am.

Paris brasserie: Mollard

Champs-Elysées brasserie

The Champs-Elysees are not the ideal district for affordable restaurants. Moreover, the value for money is usually low. It is therefore worth mentioning that a few restaurants strive to provide good food for affordable prices. L'Alsace is probably the best choice. Like all brasseries in town, l'Alsace serves sauerkraut, seafood, beer and Alsace wines. The restaurant is open 24/7 seven days a week. The menu with two or three courses is quite affordable and the quality is excellent. There is also plenty of choice à la carte, but it will cost extra money.
