If you’re looking to re-experience the French brasserie vibe you’re nostalgic about (from your last trip to Paris) – Orsay is a good spot to get your fix. With French doors and art nouveau arches the feel is more elegant rather than the red banquette casual brasserie aesthetic you’d get at Pastis or Balthazar. Still though, Orsay has its own style, and the French classics there are dependable. Make a Reservation.
