5 good brasseries in Paris

1) Le Chardenoux

First opened in Paris in 1908 this is one of the last true Parisian bistros in existence and a real historical monument. Large mirrors hang on the walls and the original marble mosaic bar and floor tiles are still in place. As a result Le Chardenoux has managed to retain its old world elegance and pleasant atmosphere. A few years ago the French chef Cyril Lignac took over at the helm of the kitchen, giving pride of place to French cuisine and regional products, revisiting traditional dishes and reinterpreting them with a modern twist. A delightful experience.
