l'Auberge Bressane restaurant in Paris a few steps from Les Invalides and the Champs de Mars is old-fashioned in a style that never goes out of fashion. Decorated like a true country inn of the Lyons and Burgundy region with wooden panelling, fleurs de lys motifs on walls and table linens, brown leather upholstery and displays of baguettes and big, butch bottles of fine wines, l'Auberge Bressane has a bubbling and relaxed atmosphere. The welcome is exactly as you'd expect in a country inn, as well, friendly and unpretentious. The menu features hearty dishes like eggs en cocotte in beaujolais with bacon and shallots, frogs' legs provencale, utterly traditional coq au vin. If you indulge, remember to order one of the unforgettable dessert souffles, Baked Alaska or flamboyant crepes suzettes at the beginning of your meal.
