Brasserie Gallopin is a historic address in Paris 2nd arrondissement. Set across the Palais Brogniart, this address was created in 1876 and opened by Gustave Gallopin. It became a genuine institution for lovers of traditional bourgeoise cuisine. Note that Gallopin used to be one of the first cocktail bars in Paris.
We love the Belle Epoque decoration, the Victorian woodworks, the large spaces and its magnificent glass roof built for the 1889 World’s Fair. The glass roof can open on to the courtyard to enjoy sunny days.
On site, we discover the beautiful brasserie menu devoted to classics from the French gastronomy. Deviled eggs with Avruga caviar, foie gras, snails and pâté en croute are served.
As for mains, the restaurant puts on a show and flambé dishes in front of us. Therefore, we ordered king shrimps flambéed with absinthe, and the French beef fillet with pepper sauce, plated in front of us.
Spicy sauce, perfectly cooked shrimps and some Chateaubriand beurre maître d’hôtel perfectly cooked, it is a delight. But it is up to you and you can order the duck with figs, or the suckling pig with apples.
To wrap up the meal, we cannot miss the famous crêpes Suzette – flambéed in front of us as well. Unless you are more into baked Alaska.
In other words, if you love mastered classics, the whole in a very beautiful Parisian setting, you are at the right place.
