Winter in Paris : lunch at La Brasserie de l’Isle Saint-Louis
It is a Paris institution like there are very few left in the City of Lights. Marvelously located on the Ile Saint Louis, La Brasserie de l’Isle Saint-Louis has been managed by three generations of the same family since the 1920s. What makes it so special ?
Too often in Paris nowadays, you are left disappointed with what should matter more while eating at a restaurant : the food. Not such thing happens while eating at La Brasserie de l’Isle Saint-Louis : here, Jerome Kappe, one of the two brothers running the restaurant, makes sure only good, fresh and tasty products are served. Nothing frozen, and you really feel the difference from many other so called « brasseries » in your plate !
The name says it all : La Brasserie de l’Isle Saint-Louis is located right in the middle of Paris, on the Ile Saint Louis. You will just have to tell your guest to meet you at the tip of the Île Saint-Louis, in front of Notre Dame de Paris 😉 If you are lucky enough on the warm and sunny days, you may even score a spot on the terrace, right in front of the River Seine. Ah, Paris !
When you push the doors of La Brasserie de l’Isle Saint-Louis, you will feel like you are entering another time, with this real old-fashioned charm the address has kept from its older days. You may even meet some regulars, who will remember their life flowing from when they were toddlers to date – and may have a story or two to tell…
