Brasseries on or near the Champs Elysee

It looks like it is going to be wet when we are in Paris, so after iour Monet fest we will need somewhere near where we are staying to sit down and eat some delicious food.

Any recommendations? Not necessarily fancy pants Michelin starred places, more simple French bistros or brasserie style would be good as long as the food and wine are good!

1. Re: Brasseries on or near the Champs Elysee

The problem with the Grand Palais, grand though it might be, it's that it's in the middle of nowhere. And if you start walking out of it and looking for a place to eat, you are bound to walk a km to get to the Champs. And there the restaurants are mainly chain ones, with a not very Parisian atmosphere (no Parisian ever goes to the Champs to eat) and not good value for money. So, let me give you an insider tip: if you get out of the exhibition after, say, 18h30, just go to the nearby Théâtre du Rond-Point (it's the round structure 100m West of the GP), they have a very nice, good, atmospheric, and, oh so Parisian, restaurant. As you enter, go straight ahead and down the stairs. They usually have 2 or 3 shows that start at 21h00, so people tend to eat before, but it's open throughout as a "normal" restaurant (except that it's not open for lunch, of course)

L'Alsace is good and reliable and open 24/7 on the Champs Elysées. It's probably the only place on the street with more Parisian customers than tourists.
