Sought out for its sumptuous and protected heritage interior, this brasserie was once the headquarters for the Surrealists, and it still never disappoints. You’ll want to go for the 6 varieties of oysters, its seafood platters, its “Muscadothèque” and all the classics: magret (sliced duck breast), tartare, prime rib steak, etc.), served (early and) till late in the evening. But it’s also open for breakfast – homemade viennoiseries, crème caramel au beurre salé de Guérande (salt butter caramel custard), crémet Nantais with seasonal fruit – and there are the new “chic et choc” lunchtime prix-fixe menus.
