This intriguing restaurant offers an unusual combo of French bistro food and Japanese sushi that just about works. The selection of moules (mussels) in various sauces is exceptional, and the French side of the menu includes rainbow trout, pork chop Brittany, braised rabbit, baked Atlantic cod, and even roasted bone marrow. The sushi, sashimi, and maki rolls won’t impress connoisseurs, but are always fresh and make for a nice change. The property itself boasts an equally mixed-up history, starting life as a brick warehouse in 1880, redesigned in 1943 in the Art Moderne style, and now sporting a 19th-century Parisian brasserie theme: red-leather banquettes, metal-top bar, exposed brick, rattan chairs, and outdoor tables under umbrellas.
