Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Quaint rue de Buci has been shaken up by the extravagance of Germain, a versatile brasserie halfway between Alice in Wonderland and London's Sketch. The heated terrace is great for people watching, and the main ground-floor room, which features the lower part of a vast yellow statue piercing through the ceiling above, is perfect for a quick lunch.

There's also a cosy salon for cocktails, a more conservative dining room at the back, and a private room on the first floor with a snooker table and the top half of the yellow statue. The food is almost childishly classic, but always with a twist (ham and butter macaroni with truffle) and not as expensive as you might expect.
