This brasserie circa 1900 is nestled in the Galerie Vivienne, an ornate covered passageway adjacent to the Palais-Royal. Tile-mosaic floors, sculpted pilasters, Italianate wall frescoes, and a zinc bar grace the interiors. Noted for its shellfish platters and fresh oysters, the restaurant also offers fixed-price menus for excellent value. (Le Grand Colbert, 2 Rue Vivienne, 75002.)
