Parisian brasseries

At 6 a.m., it’s time to end the night over onion soup at Café République. A Parisian archetype, these restaurants, founded in the mid-19th century by... beer brewers, are open all day. A meeting place for artists and intellectuals, some of today’s most famous brasseries include Lipp, La Coupole and La Closerie des Lilas. Here’s an alternative in a working-class district of Paname: Bellanger, 140 rue du Faubourg Poissonnière.
