I ate here my first night in Paris. It's directly across the street from the Best Western Première Opera Faubourg. I don't remember my main course, however my appetizer, Tuna Tartare, was so good. It was layered with thin, crispy sheets of Parmesan cheese.

Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle

cinemas sit side by side with French bistros
predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in
