Le Sully: traditional cuisine and centenarian brasserie in Paris

Traditional and delicious dishes, a family and hearty cuisine: here’s the magic recipe of Le Sully, this Parisian brasserie nestled near Bastille since 1917!

To the question: “How long have you been here?” Le Sully owner Romain Vidal’s answer pops right away: “For over a century!”. Yes, the history of this Parisian brasserie is a family business before anything else.

Created in 1917 by Emile, Le Sully used to be a simple bar and tobacconist’s called “Le Célestin”. The place has then been called Le Sully in the 1920’s, when son-in-law Pierre took over the business. The latter didn’t hesitate to extend the surface buy taking over the neighbor stores becoming what we now know. He grabbed the opportunity to throw himself into food catering with the dish of the day and the famous omelets.

In the 1990’s, the brasserie shows a new facet with the coming of the 3rd generation that bets everything on the period decoration and the 1920 style.

Today, Le Sully is already welcoming its fourth generation! It’s actually Romain Vidal who took over the place and wishes to improve the establishment. In 2013, the brasserie was awarded the Maître-Restaurateur title, betting on quality and homemade.

Moving on to dishes, the traditional cuisine is given pride of place with several suggestions that will delight meat lovers such as this 250g “Charolaiseentrecote rib steak, or the irresistible and genuine 200g Andouillette 5A, the 180g veal back with shallot or the “Charolaisetartare steak.

Romain highlights us that the menu will change regularly and should soon propose new vegetarian and vegan dishes.

Let’s start the tasting with the suggestion of the day menu. That lunch, we had the delicious homemade gazpacho. Refreshing and perfect for the upcoming summer season.

Next, we continue with a flavorful cold pollock fillet, served with pan-fried vegetables. The whole is to be enjoyed with homemade aioli, cleverly dosed.

My partner in crime goes for the beetroot carpaccio with its poached egg. Gourmet, aesthetic, this dish tastes as good as it tastes.

Finally, let’s speak about desserts. Classics are given pride of place with a chocolate mousse based on organic eggs that is simply to die for, a crème brûlée with Bourbon Vanilla bean just perfectly cooked, crispy on the top and goey inside, or the tiramisu or the vanilla flan.

If you’re on a rush, Le Sully also proposes you classics such as the Croque Monsieur, the Quiches of the day or the César or goat’s cheese salads.

Classic recipes but homemade and perfectly cooked that always please our taste buds!

The bonus? A set menu for less than €10 to be enjoyed directly at the counter.

Please also note that for round ball lovers, Le Sully will broadcast games of the French team during the FIFA World Cup 2018 on big screens.
