Open since 1968 in Paris in the 6th arrondissement, the Pub Saint-Germain is experiencing a renewal, 50 years after its creation. As a matter of fact, Greg Smith and Thomas St John – the two associates behind the O’Sullivans bars – recently took over the Pub Saint-Germain. Careful though, the Saint-Germain-des-Prés icon from the 70’s still has its soul. The O’Sullivans concept has not made it. The place remains a brasserie.
The Pub Saint-Germain is a huge place of life, covering four stories, unveiling several areas on 900sqm of surface. Featuring three bars – including one in the entrance with pink light equipped with 16 beer taps. As well as different dining rooms to enjoy modernized brasserie cuisine.
As a starter, enjoy some foie gras, egg parfait with wine sauce. As for us, we went for the ham and cheese escalope fritter and the well-seasoned seabass ceviche with passion fruit.
Then, enjoy a staple, the croque-monsieur (or madame), served here rolled. As well as half-cooked salmon with sesame, served with ponzu sauce. The thick slice of fish is covered in sesame seeds and once cut, salmon is perfectly half-cooked.
As for dessert, among brownie and seasonal fruit tart, go for the chouquettes with light Madagascan vanilla cream. It is scrumptious and it can be easily eaten, despite an already heavy meal.
The Pub Saint-Germain also serves burgers and pizzas, as well as boards to share.
Moving on to the bar(s), cocktails, wine and beer are served. On the list, several Parisian beers. As for cocktails, well-made, classics rub shoulder with creations.
The Pub Saint-Germain also features a billiards room, broadcast of sporting events, and when allowed clubbing parties with DJ from Thursday to Sunday.
