Le Wagon Bleu

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
The gloriously nostalgic ‘Blue Wagon’ in the 17th arrondissement is set inside a 1920s carriage from the legendary Orient Express. Cherrywood panelled walls and rich royal blue banquettes, set either side of neat wooden tables, look just as they did 90 years ago – even the original overhead luggage rack remains. On the menu, expect a mix of French classics like steak frites alongside Corsican dishes like figatellu rôti (roasted Corsican sausage). Lunch is steal at €11 (for the dish of the day and coffee); or expect to pay €30 for three courses in the evening. If you don’t want to eat here, you can still bask in art deco splendour at the bar where a popular happy hour keeps the locals entertained everyday from 4pm to 9pm.
