If you want to dine in a Belle Epoque restaurant in Paris, Brasserie Mollard might just be the place you are looking for. Founded in 1867 by Mr and Mrs Mollard, the Brasserie Mollard is one of the best Art Nouveau restaurants in Paris. The brasserie's location has contributed significantly to its success, particularly in the 19th century: located a couple of minutes away from the Saint Lazare train station, an area which used to be quite rural and under-developed, the brasserie benefited from the fast period of the Industrial Revolution and the development of railway stations. Soon the Saint-Lazare area became very popular and many came to establish their business in the neighbourhood. With the money earned from the restaurant's success, Mr Mollard decided to invest in the decoration of the place, making it one of the most typical Belle Epoque brasseries in Paris.

Unfortunately, with the First World and the Second World began difficult times for the restaurant, which then lost most of its customers. In 1928, the Mollard brasserie was taken over by the GAUTHIER family. It is only in 1945 that business started kicking off again, when businessmen from Normandie stopping at Saint Lazare train station for a day in Paris would meet at Mollard for business meetings.

A typical Art Nouveau setting

Today, the restaurant is renowned for serving traditional brasserie cuisine in a setting faithful to the Art Nouveau period, an artistic movement inspired by the use of curvy lines, colours, nature and floral patterns. At the end of the 19th century, Mr Mollard ordered mosaics from Italy to prepare the setting, which reproduces scenes of everyday life. For example, scenes of travellers entering the Saint Lazare train station can be found. Colours of the fresco include blue, green, gold and brown.

The decoration works of Mollard have been supervised by Edouard-Jean Niermans, also architect of the Moulin Rouge, Hotel Negresco in Nice, and Hotel de Paris in Monte Carlo.

Classic brasserie cuisine

The cuisine offered at Mollard is classic and tasty. As many other good brasseries in Paris, Mollard offers fresh sea food, such as oysters, schrimps, langoustine and lobster Thermidor. If you do not like sea food, don't worry, there are many other options!

To start with, you can have a traditional onion soup with cheese, foie gras with a glass of sweet wine, or Burgundy snails. Mains include a delicious bouillabaisse (a fish soup from South of France), trout meunière, steak tartare, grilled entrecote and lamb shoulder cooked with seasonal vegetables. For dessert, go for the crêpe flambéed with Grand Marnier, warm apple tart with vanilla ice cream or profiteroles with vanilla cream and hot chocolate sauce.
