Bofinger Restaurant Review

: Bofinger's stained-glass ceiling, ceramics, marquetry, mirrors and tulip-shaped sconces compose a magnificent Belle-Époque décor that has long been a landmark in the Bastille quarter. Parisians, provincials, tourists and celebrities throng in for generous assortments of extra-fresh shellfish and hearty choucroute garni. The newly harvested cabbage procures a crispy and acid taste to the choucroute, the way the Alsatians like it. The Flo group wisely took over this thriving enterprise (the restaurant serves 300,000 meals each year!) several years ago. The duck foie gras, bouillabaisse, rack of lamb sprinkled with parsley, and Vacherin cheese are all thoroughly recommendable.
