Brasserie Vagenende Restaurant Review

: Brasserie Vagenende’s Belle Époque décor is listed in the supplementary inventory of the Monuments Historiques (National Heritage Sites). This Saint-Germain-des-Prés institution was sold by the Vagenende family to the Egurreguy family in 1977, and run by Monique Egurreguy for many years. In 2010, her daughter Marie came on board, vowing to update the restaurant while preserving its legacy. As a result, this family-run institution now features a revamped décor and a renovated terrace. Young chef Benoît Vanheesbeke reinterprets classic brasserie fare with an elegant, creative touch. Dishes such as Lyonnaise-style pike quenelles with Nantua sauce and perfectly executed beef sirloin with pepper sauce pay homage to Paris's culinary past. Vagenende’s regulars have been known to plan their visits around the popular weekly specials, which feature hearty, traditional dishes such as head of veal and kidneys. The assortment of aged cheeses comes from Marie Quatrehomme. There is a €26 fixed menu and €32 market menu available daily (except Friday and Saturday night and public holidays).
