This was informative and enjoyable to read... it got me thinking about the places in my neighborhood and what their definitions would be.

Great post! It's so important to understand the "rhythms" of the city - what's open when, what type of service. Our favorite Salon de The is on Ile Saint-Louis. Your photography also is outstanding - very much enjoy your site.


Yay Bofinger (top photo)! I never go to Paris without a visit to this wonderfully preserved brasserie. Love the Choucroute Garnie! Thanks for the photo. It definitely took me there.


It should read that salons de thé are more _formal_ than cafés, shouldn't it?

Hey Richard, too funny, we were going to post exactly the same thing. I will instead make reference to your post. ; ) Thanks - Yetunde

Great info. I have shared this on a post explaining the meaning of brasserie. Thanks for sharing.
