Brasserie Lutetia is one of the Rive Gauche’s most celebrated brasseries. Located at Hotel Lutetia in the heart of the Left Bank, this restaurant offers a modern, charming atmosphere combined with perfectly executed brasserie-style cuisine.
Guests are welcomed into a chic, modern, and airy space filled with natural light from large windows. A large patio set off from the street allows for comfortable people-watching on a nice day. There’s also an enclosed sunroom-type dining area for guests who would like the terrace experience without being exposed to the elements.
The menu at Brasserie Lutetia features an array of classic French dishes such as steak frites, sole meunière, and towers of fresh seafood including oysters, whole crabs, lobsters, and sea snails. For dessert, order an île flottant – a classic light dessert made with fluffy meringue floating in crème anglaise. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable about their menu options, offering helpful advice when asked.
In addition to its delicious food offerings, the brasserie has a short but excellent wine list featuring some extraordinary selections from French vineyards.
We love Brasserie Lutetia for its top-notch location and delightful dining experience with an impressive selection of dishes prepared expertly with an elevated take on brasserie-style techniques. The brasserie is also open in the mornings for breakfast serving the same luxurious menu offered to hotel guests. Don’t miss the lobster omelette.
