Chez Julien Restaurant

Chez Julien

Chez Julien is a typically Parisian restaurant in the 4th district of the French capital. This old bakery is a listed building and evokes the style of the 1900s; if you love the romance of Paris then this is the place for you. The menu consists of traditional and reliable French dishes, such as foie gras pâté or scallops cooked in a basil sauce. There is also a substantial choice of fish and meat dishes. Chez Julien also has a wonderful terrace for al fresco dining.

Founded in 1780, this restaurant couldn’t feel more French if the servers sang “Frère Jacques” while serving crème brûlée. But this is no dainty tourist trap. Bought and renovated last year by one of the Costes family, best known for the luxurious Hôtel Costes, the restaurant has exquisite retro-chic décor like plush banquettes and tall mirrors. A stylish crowd of all ages dines on French classics — foie gras, frogs’ legs, rack of lamb and a massive Chateaubriand steak with good crispy fries — but the view is the marquee attraction. From the tree-fringed outdoor seats you can see the Seine, Notre Dame and, just footsteps away, the old St.-Gervais-St.-Protais Church.
