Very central, the Café des Arts et Métiers is located next to the museum of the same name which should be visited at all costs. The brasserie has a warm contemporary feel as well as a wonderful sprawling terrace. The regular clientele include those studying at the Conservatory and the faithful museum-goers along with a chic, intellectual and creative crowd. At the Arts et Métiers you’ll find an efficient, typically Parisian brasserie. Service is rapid and impeccable. The interior feels like the lounge of a luxury hotel. For lunch you can choose from daily specials: one starter and two main dishes. Desserts come straight from the extraordinary pastry chef of the Café Français. Fresh market produce is prepared on the spot. An outstanding dish on the menu is creamy chicken risotto. Sunday brunch is fantastic for a mere 19 € and you can stop by for happy hour every day from 6:00 to 8:00 pm to order pints of beer or cocktails.
