Arguably the most quintessential brasserie in Paris, La Coupole is an institution of French art and style that came into its own in the late 1920s. The extraordinary art deco interior boasts 33 pillars, covered in Cubist paintings, which are listed on the Registry of Historic Monuments. A massive space (it seats 450), La Coupole has always attracted a star-studded clientele from Man Ray to Josephine Baker to Chagall to François Mitterand. Today, the brasserie menu features French mainstays, but also seafood towers and an abbreviated terrace menu.
