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.
