We keep coming back to the Moderne because the food is always very good and very inventive. Excellent service and a very inviting atmosphere. Very elegant, but for a reasonable price. Good central convenient location. Just superb.

To celebrate our anniversary, we had dinner here and decided to choose the "menu degustation" consisting of 6 courses each, with 2 glasses of wine paired with the first and second 3 dishes! The serving staff informed us the dishes would be a surprise but,...More

Opera / Bourse
The neighborhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle
époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades,
and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here,
modern day workers continue to take advantage of the
legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th
century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theaters, and
cinemas sit side by side with French bistros
predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in

Le Caf�� Moderne restaurant in Paris opposite the old Bourse ��� what a lot of fun with what a lot of style. Just like it says on the sign, this is a brilliantly modern, chic caf�� with classic colours of cream-coloured walls, burgundy banquettes and upholstery, tables dressed in white and a constantly-changing array of artworks by exciting new artists. The bar area is dressed like a wine cave, with wooden wine crates standing in for side tables. Wines are passionately tested, scrupulously stored and enthusiastically offered here ��� on Monday nights great wines are sold at cost, an incredible bargain. The menu is both classic and modern, with dishes like roast veal with mushroom fricassee and sage jus. Lunchtimes it���s heaving with bankers and heavy hitters, but much quieter in the evenings.
