Review on La Coupole
Located in the heart of Montparnasse, La Coupole is another legendary Paris brasserie which has been taken over by the Flo restaurant group. In 1928 this former wood and coal store became Paris' largest brasserie and over the years has seen many a famous face through it's doors. The dining area has retained the original décor from that period with the thirty two art deco columns painted by different artists of the epoch, mosaic floor and long lines of linen-clad tables. La Coupole's celebrated basement dance hall where Josephine Baker, Simone de Veauvoir and Jean-Paul Sartre liked to dance has been given a new lease of life and now echoes to the sound of top DJs.
Vakhtang Meliava is head chef and he is a specialist in brasserie fare but there are flashes of modern invention in his menus. Seafood also features prominently on the carte and you can take your pick from the massive raw fish counter. Enjoy a starter of avocado and crab millefeuille or pan-fried foie gras before mains of sweetbreads with truffle juice and macaroni gratin or their famous lamb curry. Delicious desserts are on offer such as pear delight, sumptuous pear with caramel or maybe traditional crêpes Suzette might take your fancy. There is an all French wine list that is fairly priced and eminently drinkable.
