La Fermette Marbeuf 1900: "Everything Old Is Nouveau Again" Paris Restaurant Tip by ExGuyParis
Paris Restaurants: 2,609 reviews and 3,305 photos
A few blocks down Rue Marbeuf off the Champs Elysees, you will find the restaurant La Fermette Marbeuf 1900. You will step back into time as you enter this incredible 1900 Art Nouveau interior. When reserving, ask for a table in the room with the “vitraux"—stained glass windows.
Apparently this space had been turned into a Formica-clad bistro. At one point, the owner decided to remodel. As the Formica panels were stripped from the walls, this incredible decor was re-revealed. Now the restaurant has its original turn of the century Art Nouveau splendor.
Not cheap: for a Christmas eve dinner for four a few years ago, the bill was 320 euros (this included aperitifs, two bottles of pretty decent St. Emilion, and a three course fine meal for each of us). On the regular menu, main courses begin at 20 euros.
English is spoken fluently, and the menu is in French and English, to handle the healthy volume of tourists that visit this place.
