Description - The Historic Restaurants Of Paris by Ellen Williams

This guidebook describes nearly one hundred select restaurants and gourmet shops and reveals the otherwise vanished city where 19th-century Paris-with all its romance, history, and beauty-still exists. Crossing the thresholds of these century-old establishments, diners and shoppers can step into a gilded Belle Epoque restaurant favored by Degas; a vintage confectioner that supplied bonbons to Monet; and a shaded cafe terrace frequented by Zola. From tiny patisseries, cozy bistros, and rustic wine bars barely known outside the quarter to bustling brasseries, elegant tea salons, and world famous cafes, The Historic Restaurants of Paris is an indispensable guide to classic cuisine served in settings of startling beauty. The text includes charming anecdotes relating to each shop and restaurant's history and celebrated former patrons. Appendices include establishments that are open on Sunday, those that sell items suitable for gifts, those with garden dining, and the author's personal favorites. Listings are arranged by arrondissement, with addresses, phone numbers, hours, and nearest metro stops.
